Yesterday’s Recipe For Change event was amazing, delicious, and a delight to attend. In addition to being a great experience, it was also for a great cause FoodShare, and in support of their fantastic educational programs and other campaigns. It was a great venue for mingling with food wizards and chefs (and asking them if they were able or willing to cater a vegan wedding…)
Here is my evening in pictures where I remembered to snap one:
Donna Dooher, Mildred’s Temple Kitchen
Jesús Gomez, FoodShare
Vegan Sushi in Savoy Cabbage leaves
Cornmeal Crusted Tempeh Croquette with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli
Winlai Wong, Spice Route
King Oyster Mushroom Jiaozi Dumpling
Brad Long, Café Belong
Charlotte’s Vegan Meatballs on Mushroom Slaw
Abby Sabherwal, Magical Catering
Gluten Free Vegan Pasta with Legumes in Ginger-Tomato Sauce
Sybil Pinnock, FoodShare
Jerk Tofu in Phyllo Cups
We also ate an amazing couple of soups/stews/etc that don’t photograph well in little cups.
Katherine Hall, Hall’s Kitchen – Rockin’ Moroccan Stew
Regardless – they were both delicious. I was very excited to hear that the Patate e Fagioli was available at Pizzeria Libretto on Danforth (555 Danforth, Toronto)
Because of this event I discovered a few new local alcoholic beverages that I might actually want to drink again.
Frogpond Winery had an awesome 2008 Organic Cabernet Merlot. And word is, some of their products will soon be available at the LCBO. Excellent.
The person at Southbrook Vineyards was super friendly, and we tried both the 2008 Triomphe Cabernet Franc and the 2008 Triomphe Chardonnay.
Old time favourite, Mill Street Brewery was there, but we didn’t drink any – since we still have a few bottles in our fridge. But I wasn’t really familiar with Black Oak Brewing Co before last night, but their Black Oak Nut Brown is definitely going on the list of beers I actually like (which isn’t all that common).
Great event – Great cause – Great company.
