Yo foodies, listen up: this week, Taste Festivals will bring the Taste of Toronto to North America for the first time. People who do not identify as foodies are also welcome, if not more so, who is still calling themselves a foodie these days, really.

Featuring specially-created menus and exclusive opportunities with the city’s most acclaimed chefs, the inaugural four-day fest will feature live food demonstrations, chef Q&As, interactive cooking classes, expert wine tastings, live music and upwards of 500 samples for the intrepid sampler.

The fest runs from Thursday, July 24 through til Sunday at Fort York, with lunch and dinner sessions everyday. For more information and tickets, check out their website: http://www.tasteoftoronto.com/.

Bon Appetit!
