Toronto Vegetarian Festival and a meaty review
A quick post from Canada just letting you know that yours truly will be at the Toronto Vegetarian Festival this year again.
My Demo TimesI will be doing Vegan Gourmet Food on Saturday at the Lakeside Centre at 4 pm and I will be having a session on Caribbean Street Foods on Sunday at 6 pm. This year I am throwing in a modest non sponsored giveaway from yours truly just to give back to those who came out to support.
Do come out to support this festival. It is the biggest of its kind in North America, this year they have more chefs, more exhibitors and more of everything. There will be lost of free samples a beautiful world style restaurant with lots of great plant based food to try…should i say more?
On Saturday time will be limited but I will make an hour after my demo to chat with those who want to talk.
Canada has been good as usual…the weather has been lovely..I took up outdoor jogging while I was here because I didnt want the hassle to find a gym. I have not eaten at any vegan restaurants yet but I will have an update for you on vegan eats from the festival itself.
I have been eating a lot of organic vegetables and I have been topping my salads with Gardien products.
Here I have my signature kale salad with cranberries and the Buffalo Wings. These are really good and you can make them spicy by squirting some hot sauce in the sauce packet. They char well and they hold on to the sauce good too. Their texture reminds me of chicken breast and they can be customizable or eaten as is.I liked the orange chicken but you must consume it right away or the sauce will soak into the veggie chicken and it is not so nice after that. I liked the light citrus flavour and this works well on rice or noodle based dishes.
The next time I will be writing is to review the Toronto Vegetarian Festival so keep your eyes locked right here and those in North America enjoy your last days of summer.
