The Delicious Food Show

“People who love to eat are always the best people.” ~ Julia Child

I love checking out food shows and food events. Not only are they fun to attend with a group of friends, they are a terrific way to learn about new food products and drinks and meet people in the industry. The more shows I attend, the more pumped I get to start on my own food business endeavours. These shows are great motivators.

This weekend, The Delicious Food Show was in town. It was a pink carpet event and I was excited to check it out.

Stamped and marked legal to drink. I won’t lie, I was happy to get carded.

Greeted by the Jelly Belly guy. Samples already. IMG_6031

There were so many booths and vendors here. And all of them had a little something that I was interested in. Samples reigned galore, and all of it made our taste buds dance. I even came home with some nice goodies.

Various balsamic vinegars and oils infused with herbs and even fruits.

Stirling butter.

The best butter in Ontario. Based in Stirling, Ontario, this company has been around for 85 years. They use fresh, sweet cream, no colourants or preservatives. This is artisanal butter.

Tequila.

Some strange French liquor that seemed good initially. And then we drank some. Not so good…

Cheese heaven. Cheese from all over the world. This section was a favourite.

The swiss cheese was the best.

Ice cream from the Belly Ice Cream Company from Muskoka. http://www.bellyicecreamcompany.ca/#!__home-page. I’ve had the pleasure of trying this ice cream in the past, S’mores flavour and it was delish. I was happy to try another flavour this time.

Went wih the pumpkin cheesecake. Wonderfully smooth and creamy.
