This years highlights include:

– Chefs Mario Batali (I loved Babbo, one of his many restaurants), Tyler FlorenceChuck HughesRoger MookingNadia G, and Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel (I’m a big fan of Dominique Ansel Bakery!) will be taking to the stages for demos, talks, and workshops throughout the three-day event

– Over 100 purveyors of premium products and fine foods will be on display, showcasing their absurdly delicious eats and treats

– Taste Canada Cooks the Books will pair one famed Canadian cookbook author with groups of students who will have to prepare one recipe from the author’s book to vie for the title of Canada’s Best New Student Chef

– Naturally Delicious will see a host of vendors with foods and products that are all-natural, organic, raw, gluten-free, free of additives and preservatives, and overall promote a healthy lifestyle

– A very special edition of Abbey’s Kitchen Stadium will pit eight (8) of Toronto’s top chefs against each other in an all-out maniacal melee

– #DeliciousHotspot will highlight some of Toronto’s top restaurants and pop-ups, with show attendees able to purchase samples to taste their edible excellence
