Over the course of three delectable days, the 2015 Toronto FOOD & WINE Festival will showcase the expertise and creativity of the best culinary talents in Ontario and beyond.
What’s more, it’s all happening at the Evergreen Brick Works this year. Our food scene comes to life in the Grand Tasting Pavilion, housed where the Saturday market usually happens. It will be highlighting the best local restaurants, wineries and breweries — including some Feast ON favorites.
Come get a taste of hand crafted wine, beer and cider in the Ontario Pavilion. We’ve got Feast ON Certified chefs cooking up a storm. Want a sneak peak?
Spirit Tree Estate Cidery will be pouring their Tokyo Snakebite, a medium gold cider with hints of orange, ginger and a subtle heat. Chef Adam Ryan will be pairing this unique cider with roasted apple sushi and crab-apple wasabi.
We’ve got Southbrook Vineyards coming in from Niagara pouring their delicious Cabernet Franc RosA� that smells of fresh strawberry and stewed rhubarb. They’ll be pairing that with a taste of their newly opened vineyard bistro, Farmer’s Table. Rumours have it Chef Shawn Murphy will be whipping up some savoury duck rillettes with Niagara cherry preserves for the occasion.
For the hop-heads in the audience, we’ll be joined by Lowertown Brewery from Ottawa’s Byward Market. Chef Kyle Proulx will be bringing his food forward pub classics to the table paired with their capital brewed ales.
If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, we’ve also got Chef Ryan Crawford & Bev Hotchkiss of Backhouse in Niagara, and Chef Kevin McKenna of Viamede Resort in the Kawarthas giving Chefs Talks on stage throughout the weekend. They’ll be sharing their culinary stories and sparking conversations on local food throughout the weekend.
For those looking to take home some restaurant caliber cooking tips, Chef Ryan O’Donnell of Mercer Hall in Stratford will be hitting the Miele Kitchen Stage on Friday to demo some of his signature Perth County inspired cuisine.
Want something even more hands-on? Chef Shaun Edmonstone of Bruce Wine Bar in Thornbury is hosting an intimate “Exclusive Chef Series” where you can learn to cook his hyper-local, Italian inspired dishes.
With so much going on, it can be hard to navigate the show when looking for those interesting local food & drink purveyors — that’s why we’ve partnered with Ontario, Yours to Discover to bring you the very best of our big, BIG province all weekend long.
You know that’s where we’ll be!
