Craving some Good Food and Drink?

2 Apr

Then head down to the Good Food and Drink Festival this weekend!

Toronto has a lot to celebrate: Spring finally showed up this week, and the Leafs don’t totally suck. Best way to celebrate anything in the city? Eating all the delicious food we have on offer! It’s not yet street festival season, so the Good Food & Drink festival kicks off the season at on the Exhibitions grounds, in the Direct Energy Centre, Hall D. The fun kicks off this Thursday (April 3rd) with a VIP Preview Party, which at 50 bones includes 10 drink tickets – which, in the Toronto food festival scene is a bargain!

If you’re only free on the weekend (the Good Food & Drink festival runs until Sunday April 6th!), the tickets are also totally affordable: $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

I had the pleasure of attending the festival last year, and it was a lot of fun.

If you get the "couples" package - it includes a fun tasting glass like this one!

On top of being fun, easy to navigate and with a good selection of food truck, vendors and wine, it was also totally unpretentious. The affordability factor (thank you, Toronto Star!), meant that entire families were there together and vendors got to interact with a more diverse group that they might at other festivals. In its 22nd year, the festival continues to grow while serving the community and profiling local food vendors. Remember to check their Live Demos schedule so you don’t miss your favourite chef, beer sommelier or food writer present!

This year, the dynamic bottomless pit duo and YYZGourmand writers, Alice and MC, will be attending and representing the blog. Here’s one thing that I saw last year and I hope makes a return this year (for Alice’ sake!): 

For the love of Belizan hot sauce, save some of this for Alice!

If you’re looking to end your hibernation and enjoy some good food (and drink!), and don’t want to break the bank. This is the festival for you. Go get your tickets and keep your eye open for two  people who are overly fond of hot sauce and “sauce” when you’re there this weekend!

We would like to thank The Good Food & Wine Festival for generously providing us with tickets for two of our gluttonous writers!
