Taste of Toronto
Following the outstanding success of last year’s inaugural event, Taste of Toronto returns to Fort York Historic Site this July 2 – 5. Destined to be the highlight of the food lovers’ summer calendar once again, get to know Toronto’s hottest restaurants and world-class chefs, brought together for four delicious days in one stunning location.
Taste Festivals offers a pop-up restaurant festival experience unlike any other. Guests sample Toronto’s spectacular food scene at its best, engage with celebrity chefs and take part in an exciting programme of demonstrations, tastings and interactive cooking classes. The second annual event will showcase fresh faces alongside returning favourites, as well as over 70 local artisan food producers and premium brands in the vendor marketplace.
New to this year’s lineup is Michael van den Winkel of Little Sister bringing the heat from his spicy, chili-infused Indonesian fare, and celebrated MasterChef Canada judge Michael Bonacini appears alongside the talented chef team behind the classic fine dining Oliver & Bonacini restaurants. Returning fan-favourites include Victor Barry of Splendido, Cory Vitiello of Harbord Room, Carl Heinrich of Richmond Station, David Neinstein of Barque Smokehouse, Elia Herrera of Los Colibris, and Mark McEwan of McEwan Group. The chefs will serve three signature dishes at each of their pop-up restaurants.
If that is not enough to tickle your taste buds, make sure to catch culinary demonstrations in the Taste Theatre, wine tastings sessions featuring host Franco Stalteri of Charlie’s Burgers and hands-on cooking classes with top chefs in the Metro Master Class, with even greater capacity to meet last year’s overwhelming demand.
