Weekly Toronto Food Event Pick: Taste of Toronto July 2-5
This year’s Taste of Toronto festival is mighty impressive.
Over four days, you get the chance to take hands-on cooking classes at the Metro Master Class, do a wine sampling with Charlie’s Burgers in the Tasting Room, learn chef’s secrets at the Cadillac Taste Theatre and mingle with celebrity chefs such as Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Mark McEwan and Lynn Crawford.
Add to that a vendor marketplace, and this year’s lineup of chefs (see below) and you’ve got one of the most epic food events of the year!
