Preview: Gourmet Food &Wine Expo 2011


This is my first year to attend the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo and I didn't know what to expect. When we were booking and securing our badges I made sure that I signed up for the weekend too, since I have to go to work after checking out the VIP Preview Night. I ate more than I drank. Here are some of the spots I tried;
Alexander Keith's
Beer Barons
Canoe
Hank Daddy's BBQ
Kranken Rum
Major Craig's Chutney
Maritime Lobster
McClelland Premium Imports
Mott's Clamato Caesar School
Ontario Goat Cheese
Philippe Dandurand Wines
Rodney's Oyster House
Ruelo Patisseri
Victoria Gin
The event was overwhelming, too many places to see for such a limited amount of time. I will definitely coming back on Sunday - more food and drinks to try!
Keep posted for full blog on tasting notes and the whole experience of a "first-timer."
