Taste Canada 2016: Overcoming Evil with Good Food

On Monday November 14th, Canada’s best food authors, bloggers, and enthusiasts gathered for the 19th annual Taste Canada Awards in Toronto, On. The energy in the room was electric. You could sense the anticipation building as the nominated were about to find out if their hard work would pay off with a win. Because Taste Canada is the only organization that recognizes Canadian Food Writers, a lot was on the line!

Whitby's Food Truck Frenzy, 2016

Whitby's Food Truck Frenzy, 2016

Food Truck Frenzy - Whitby

Food Truck Frenzy - Whitby

This past weekend was the 2nd annual Food Truck Frenzy Festival. I wasn't able to attend last year so when I saw the advertisements line the streets of Whitby a little over a week ago I immediately contacted a few close friends of mine and invited them to come along with me.

You can get overwhelmed in that kind of glorious environment and I certainly did.

Durham Craft Beer Festival: Seasonals and Ciders

Back in July a friend who knew that I had started to brew and enjoyed craft beer informed me that Oshawa was having their first Craft Beer festival later in the month.

The event was very successful  and I was looking forward to the one next year.
