Slow Down this Weekend

If you are in town this weekend, you should consider attending the Picnic at the Evergreen Brick Works (550 Bayview Avenue.) Top Chefs from Toronto will be offering a global menu on Sunday October 4, 2009 from 12:00 to 4:00pm.

With its backing from Evergreen and Slow Food Canada, the event definitely has a environmentally-conscious locavore slant.

“We expect a record turnout at the Picnic this year,” says Evergreen’s Seana Irvine. “More and more Torontonians and more and more people across the country are eating locally and eating well. Being a locavore is one of the most immediate ways we can help the environment and support local economies.”

Some of the local chefs cooking will be:
  • Carlos Fuenmayor from Sabrosito
  • Vertical’s Tawfik Shehata
  • Nobu Yamada from Kobo
  • Ted Corrado from C5
  • Food Studio’s Joshna Maharaj
  • Andrew Milne-Allan from Zucca
  • Yasser Qahawish from Artisanale
  • Deron Engbers from Amuse
