Sunday was the now-annual fundraiser for Slow Food Toronto and Evergreen. For those who haven’t been, it’s essentially an all-you-can-eat buffet of awesomeness!
Some of the cities top chefs were paired with local farmers and given a region of the world to be inspired by. There was ample beer and wine as accompaniment as well. More than 60 restaurants were represented in total – including Amuse-Bouche , Langdon Hall, Pangaea, Canoe, Vertical, C5, Cowbell, Globe and more. A full list and what they prepared appears here.
The event was extremely well organized, staffed with great volunteers (thank you to them!) and, though very busy, not overwhelming with people.
The talk of the town appeared to be locally frown kiwis! It appears that grape-sized kiwis can grow near Barrie. They were served in a wine jelly on top of a fresh basil leaf and were fantastic.
Do not miss this even next year – if you attended this year and have pics online, feel free to post links in our comments!
