Taste of Toronto is a four day food and drink festival held in downtown Toronto, Canada. This culinary experience is the summer foodie event of the year with over 25,000 visitors in attendance over the four days. The participants or vendors are restaurateurs and chefs. Throughout the weekend chefs put together workshops for visitors to hone their culinary skills. Guests also have the opportunity to taste various culinary delights as chefs put together taster plates.

The chefs that I am most looking forward to meeting and tasting their creations are: Cory Vitiello of Flock, a restaurant known for being pretty good for you, serving up hormone and antibiotic-free chicken and lots of veggies. Grant van Gameren of Bar Isabel and Bar Raval fame, their menus are unique, adventurous, playful, and absolutely delicious. Michael Hunter of Antler Kitchen and Bar, this is a restaurant that I just discovered through researching Taste of Toronto. I read the menu to my boyfriend and both of our mouths started watering, everything on Michael Hunter’s menu at Antler sounds absolutely divine, the concept behind this restaurant is wild meat and foraged ingredients combine to make the most incredible dishes.

In a pre-event email the Event Director of IMG, which is responsible for Taste of Toronto had this to say about the chefs participating at the culinary event, “this year’s stellar line up of world class chefs truly represents the dynamic and thriving restaurant scene in Toronto,” said Judy Merry, Taste of Toronto Event Director at IMG Canada Ltd., “and our culinary programming has something for everyone.”

I am thrilled to be attending this event, I’ll be Instagramming at Taste of Toronto so head on over to @fuelgoodness on Instagram and follow along, or join me at this culinary foodie event of the summer.  Tickets are available, and can be purchased at TasteofToronto.com.
