Recipe for Change – FoodShare – A night in pictures.

Recipe for Change - The Beginning of the Evening

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:

We also ate an amazing couple of soups/stews/etc that don’t photograph well in little cups.

Rocco Agostino, Enoteca Sociale, Pizzeria Libretto – Patate e Fagioli: Chickpea-White Bean Purée with Chard Sweet Potato and Tomato Confit

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.

Southbrook - Triomphe Chardonnay
The person at Southbrook Vineyards was super friendly, and we tried both the 2008 Triomphe Cabernet Franc and the 2008 Triomphe Chardonnay.

Black Oak Brewing Co

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.
