3 Nov

Toronto Gourmet Food & Wine Expo

The 2010 edition of Toronto’s Gourmet Food and Wine Expo is just around the corner. The event offers attendees the chance to sample more than 1,500 wines, beers and spirits from all over the world, check out cooking demonstrations by chefs and Food Network personalities, and taste food from a variety of vendors. Communal Table has three pairs of VIP event tickets to give away to lucky readers – read on to find out how to win!

The flavours of Texas will be centre stage at this year’s Expo. Chefs from Dallas’s Go Fish Ocean Club, Austin BBQ chain The County Line, Houston restaurant Mo’s and La Gloria of San Antonio will be on hand to showcase some of their dishes. The demonstration stage will also feature chef David Adjey of the Food Network show The Opener, as well as winners of the annual Nine of Dine Awards.

Of course, food is only half of the focus. The InterVin Award Winners Pavillion will showcase this year’s winning wines, while a variety of other bottles from Canada and around the world will also be tasted. Those looking for even more can check out the Fine Wine and Fine Scotch Tasting Lounges.

The four-day event runs from Thursday, November 18 through Sunday, November 21. Single-day admission tickets for Friday, Saturday or Sunday cost $16, with tasting tickets available for an extra $1 each (individual wine and food tastings average a couple of tickets each). Those looking for smaller crowds and special features – including a sneak preview of show highlights, the chance to taste wines available only to VIP guests, and an opportunity to connect with industry professionals and food media – can opt for tickets to the VIP evening on Thursday, November 18.
