The top 25 eats from the first ever Taste of Toronto

Posted by Liora Ipsum / July 27, 2014

taste of torontoTaste of Toronto kicked off earlier this week and continues today Sunday, July 27 from noon until 5pm. Boasting more than just a line-up of restaurant and booze vendors, the outdoor event also showcases an artisan marketplace, live demos, celebrity chef book signings, tasting classes and cooking workshops.

Held over four days in four-hour increments, line-ups were painfully long at some vendors while non-existent at others. While the marketplace only took cash, the restaurant vendors accepted an electronic payment system loaded with an imaginary currency called "crowns" (on par with the dollar). Each dish was priced between six and 10 "crowns" - which ultimately seemed to sway hungry atendees towards the biggest bang for their buck.

Check out this photo gallery of my favourite foods from Taste of Toronto.

Somewhere in the post you should say where the event took place: Fort York.

I may have missed something along the way....Is this(Toronto Taste) a NEW idea or is it Second Harvest's fundraiser by a different name? We used to go to the Second Harvest 'fundraiser' but dropped out a few years as I say, we're somewhat out of the 'loop'...

I believe that it is a London organisation that is trying to introduce the concept of a food festival to Toronto. Possibly a relatively new concept in London, but probably about 30 years late for Toronto. But one more festival is always fun!

That Foie Gras Parfait was from Bosk and was so delicious.
