Toronto Garlic Festival
Garlic lovers, growers and chefs will gather to celebrate the delicious versatility of Ontario garlic via signature dishes, cooking demonstrations for both adults and kids, and informative talks.
With prepared foods for vegetarians, meat lovers, raw foodies, locavores, beer and wine connoisseurs, and those with a sweet tooth, notable chefs and local establishments will slice, dice, crush, and sauté the finest garlic Ontario has to offer.
For curious minds, “The Truth About Garlic and Dracula”, “Chemistry in a Salad Bowl” and “The Lore and Science of Garlic”, are just a few of the presentations by gardener Liz Primeau, food chemist Dr Eric Block, Professor Emerita Elizabeth Miller, and the Ontario Science Centre.
