I’ve had a fantastic week full of food events. I really can’t complain. Here’s a recap of three food events that I went to in the last four days! Ready. Set. Go!!

1. I attended the Terroir Symposium Chefs’ photo opp at Biff’s Bistro to witness a crew of amazing chefs  assemble an 8 foot long Hero sandwich. When I wasn’t snapping photos, I was drinking beer from Muskoka Brewery and munching on amazing pickles and chips from McClure’s Pickles.

The Terroir Symposium takes place on April 8th and is Canada’s leading hospitality industry symposium which brings together influential chefs, food writers, food and wine experts and food leaders. Their mandate is to educate, network, share resources with the intention of strengthening the industry and building a better community.

I have never participated in the Terroir Symposium before but it’s certainly something I’m considering. Stay tuned!!

2. I also attended the 2013  S. Pellegrino ® Almost Famous Chef Canada Regional Competition. This was an event where I witnessed top culinary students from seven participating culinary schools across Canada, compete for a chance to become the next star of the gastronomic world. A panel of judges critiqued them on taste, texture and aroma of the dish as well as presentation.

I was in heaven. Each plate that I tried was certainly a winner in my opinion!! However there was only one winner which was Jean-Christophe Comtois from École hôtelière de la Capitale (Québec City), who prepared Milk Veal tenderloin, Matsutake and ”Tomme des Joyeux Fromagers” flavored polenta as his signature dish. He now moves on to compete in the the 11th annual Finals Competition in Napa Valley. How exciting!!

Summary of the event: There certainly was a lot of talented young chefs in one room!!

3. Culture.licious

Finally I went to check out a cooking school called Culture.licious. It was the perfect way to end the week. The evening featured Jay’s South Indian Vegetarian dishes. I’m going to dedicate an entire blog post to this amazing cooking school K?. This is just a teaser..LOL


My food adventures continue as I’m off to Mother Dumplings on Friday night, and the Canadian Restaurant  Food Association Trade Show on Sunday. I’m sure Saturday will include a food adventure too. (naturally). LOL.

PS. Have I mentioned that I really need to do a few loads of laundry and cook three different types of soups!! Can someone spare me an extra hour or two?
