come on in

Hey have any of my GTA friends been to the Delicious Food Show down at the CNE grounds before?  I went for the first time today, courtesy of Strauss Water Bar (who I’ll tell you all about soon).  But first come on in to the Direct Energy Centre and check out some of the exhibits.

first things first

And of course, to go with your coffee, there was no shortage of baked goods… pastries, cupcakes, cake pops, butter tarts, cookies, and donuts, and so much more…

Here’s a free piece of advice for you.  Whenever you see macarons you must always take a photo of them.  Promise me that you will.  Pinky swear.

did you know the caesar was invented in Canada?

And not only was there food, but everything else foodie related.  Kitchen chalkboards…swoon.  Beautiful screenprinted tea towels and letterpress prints.  A few books.

Strauss Water Bar

But back to the sponsors of this fun behind-the scenes tour.  Strauss Water Bar is a stand-alone water filtration system that hooks into your kitchen’s water supply.  The unit delivers customized cold, room-temperature, and hot water.  It comes as a monthly rental system which includes installation, refill filters and any maintenance that may be required.  Also it looks beautiful, coming in a full range of contemporary colours.

what rhymes with orange?

During the Delicious Food Show they have contest running to win one of these units, and also to win a weekend getaway for two to Montreal.  Head over to the Strauss Water website to see all the details and to enter, or find their exhibit if you go to the Delicious Food Show.  Which you should if you can.

Thanks for coming on this little backstage tour.  Have yourself a foodie weekend!
