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
