Posts Tagged ‘Food Trucks’


Since I began to blog, I have had the opportunity to meet some wonderful women  who are “foodie” entrepreneurs. My list looks like this: @TheBumpercrop, @afoodgypsy @DivaQBBQ @PascalesAllNat @ViewtheVibe @CakeStarGirlz @Sable_Rosenfeld @LeDolci @MediumRare @TasteofCheese and more!!  I truly admire these women who have a vision and run with it.

I can now expand this list to include the following women “foodie” entrepreneurs:

1. Gourmet Bitches

These two women have introduced a new food truck to the Toronto landscape that offers healthy, nutritional options. I was invited to their soft launch recently and fell in love with their kale and arugula salad. It had a spicy cayenne dressing that made this salad truly flavorful and unique. Look out for this special food truck.

Look forward to eating this again!!

2. Popover Girl

I met Popover Girl aka Lora on International Pi Day!! (how appropriate). I think I was introduced to her on twitter and was eager to meet her IRL (in real life). She specializes in sweet and savory gourmet popovers and sells them at the Toronto Underground Market. I hope you get a chance to try her delicious popovers some time soon!!

The Popover Girl herself!!

Love the eco friendly packaging. Brilliant.

3. The Cupcake Girls

The famous Cupcake Girls from WNetwork were in Toronto a few weeks ago to scout for a retail location. I got a chance to meet them briefly (too many events, too little time) and to try their tasty cupcakes.

The Cupcake Girls!!

Hope to see these cupcakes in Toronto very very soon!!

I am continually amazed by the food scene in Toronto and have enjoyed watching it grow. Not to mention, I have met some wonderful woman “foodie” entrepreneurs!!

Cheers to all of you!!

A new show was introduced to Toronto this past weekend. It was called the Delicious Food Show and they promised the best in cooking, food and kitchens.

As a huge fan of food shows (I probably go to 6 a year – mostly trade but some consumer)..I was definitely intrigued to see how this show was different than the others. In particular I wanted to see how it compared to the Good Food Festival.

To begin with, the venue (the Better Living Centre at Exhibition Place) was extremely appropriate – not to0 big, not too small. When you walked in, there was plenty of pink carpet (to match the pink logo), and a beautiful modern contemporary seating area for those who wanted to eat or rest. There was certainly an “upscale” feel to the show from the minute you entered the door.

I loved the lay out too and the introduction of food trucks to the show. How brilliant!! Not only did the food trucks give the show some interest but I’m now a fan of the Cupcake Diner. Sadly they are located in Hamilton, but they told me they have participated in all three food truck events in Toronto!! (hooray to the Food Truck Movement).

There was lots of macarons to purchase, shortbread cookies, but I was drawn to Augies Gourmet Ice Pops and Sodas. For $5 we tried a soda and a popsicle and it was indeed a refreshing treat. (and unusual too).

Which flavor do you think I selected?

I was also impressed that the show had a nice combination of everything – sweets, coffee/tea, food trucks, local food products, vegetarian food products etc. There was certainly something for every one.  Not to mention, a nice variety of cooking demonstrations on the main stage. (which I sadly didnt have time to attend).

They even had an exhibitor that taught you about MANNERS. After looking at this table setting – I probably could do with a lesson from the “Business of Manners”.

My favorite product was this CHOCOLATE SHOE from chocoStyle. I am kicking myself that I didnt pick up a few gifts. I know exactly who I would give them too. Why oh why did I just  snap a photo and not snap out my visa card. (grrr).

Is this not BRILLIANT?

No question this show will be around next year and guess who will be returning? Thats right – Me (after my run..hee hee).
