I was on twitter two weeks ago, (for a change) and saw a tweet from @unmarketing that caught my eye!!

Scott Stratten ‏@unmarketing  Feb 2Pulled pork parfait from @hankdaddysbbq at #CIAS2014 look at it! Mashed potatoes and pulled pork!

It took me a nano second to look up Hank Daddy’s BBQ so I could find out where I could find this beautiful sounding item!! Frank (not Hank..LOL) answered my call and told me that he was an exhibitor at the GTA Home Show food court, at the International Centre.

Two hours later, I was at the show chatting to Frank and eating this amazing Pulled Pork Parfait®.

Please meet Frank!!

Please meet Frank!!

What a genius concept, don’t you think?  All it takes is a few ingredients – and poof -my world has changed!!

Mashed Potatoes, Baked Beans and Pulled Pork = Pulled Pork Parfait ™

I’ve been going to the Toronto Festival Beer for many years and it keeps getting bigger and better.  I remember back in the day when it was held at Fort York  when there were just a few food vendors and it was so much smaller.   Things have clearly changed!! Now the food scene at the Festival is just as much of a highlight as the beer scene!!

As you can see from this photo….I was prepared!!

I went last night and as always enjoyed eating and drinking my way thru the festival. I wish I drank more but for some reason can never manage to have more than a few beers. Sad but true!!

Here’s a few highlights:

1. Beer and Bacon: Why haven’t I had this combo before?  Rashers is the only bacon sandwich shop in North America and I was thrilled to see them at the Festival. I devoured my British Style Bacon Strips with a few ounces of Black Guinness and was  a happy camper.

2. Foundry Cider had an apple smashing cage that looked like so much fun!! I love stuff like this…

All I know is that I will be making a special trip to the International Centre to try more!!  The two dishes I had a the Festival were nothing but outstanding. Huge thanks to @LuiSays for reaching out to me prior to the festival. (twitter works. #justsayin’)

This dish also rocked: Bruce Lee’s Tijuana Ssam Mash Up – Anchor steamed marinated Bulgogi in an iceberg wrap with spicy kimchi and American Style chop suey topped off with cilantro and mexican scented rice pops. Served in a mini bamboo boat. MORE. PLEASE.

4. Rock Lobster Food Co. is at the Festival and is hugely popular. Here’s a photo of  Matt and his team  working hard! Again, what a great combo – beer and a lobster roll!!

5. Besides the beer and the food – I love the fact that everyone is having a great time!
