Culinary Nirvana





For those of you who know Ruth from Once Upon a Feast and the never tiring Presto Pasta Nights , you may have read on her blog that she was visiting Toronto, or should I say ... eating her way through Toronto. It was a rare treat for me to meet up with Ruth and share an evening of ... yup....even more food and wine at a local culinary event. There's just something about food - looking at it, going to shop for it, touching it, preparing it and ultimately sharing it that brings people together. We talked, we laughed, we ate, we drank, we drank some more and then we ate some more. I'd say it was a night made in heaven, wouldn't you.

We attended a pot luck event sponsored by a ladies' group comprised of uber foodies, the culinary who's who of Toronto. Here's just a small sampling of some of the interesting combos. Needless to say, we waddled out of the event having met some incredible people and sampling some wonderful food and wine.










It's really hard not to love food wouldn't you say? We wish our American neighbours a fun filled Memorial Day Weekend. Can't wait to see what everybody cooked up. StumbleUpon

I am so happy you were able to hook up with another foodie, and what better way to enjoy yourselves. I will be firing up the grill for the first official cookout holiday.

Have a great weekend!

Well it is certainly nice seeing how my Canandian neighbors are also indulging a bit on this long weekend :) I swear between cookouts and watching this post I gained 5 pounds.

5 awesome pounds, but still :)

How fun to have a visitor! Now that he's hooked on Canada, I'll have to bring the hubs over to the Eastern side.
