A Calendar for Foodies

30 Oct

OK, there are so many great things going on right now for Canadian food lovers that I thought I’d share a few of my favourites. Some are soon… like grab-your-coat-and-car-keys-now soon, and some coming up over the next month or so. All feature awesome Open Kitchen contributors. Enjoy!

When: October 30, doors open at 7:30 pm
What: Toronto’s Hottest Chef
Where: The Great Hall, Toronto
Why: You can look at hot chefs.
Not that shallow? Bear in mind that the winning hot chef gets to donate all the prize money to his or her favourite charity. Their picks include: The Stop Community Centre, Second Harvest and The Children’s Breakfast Club.
On the menu: Cute cooks and canapes. Also on sale at the event is Supi Cucu hot sauce handmade by Rossy Earle–a frequent contributor to Reader’s Digest, and a hottie in her own right.

When: Nov 1, 2012 – Jan 23, 2014
What: The Wheat Belly Tour, Canada
Where: Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, various locations
Why: Dr William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, makes compelling arguments for dropping gluten from your diet, to address everything from ADHD, to autoimmune thyroid disease to your massive gut. He’s joined by Reader’s Digest resident nutritionist, Julie Daniluk, whose anti-inflammation diet touches on an even broader spectrum of healing foods.
On the Menu: The kind of information that could change the life of you or a loved one, suffering from any inflammatory condition, from dementia to arthritis to Multiple Sclerosis.
Bonus: 5% discount for Open Kitchen readers by clicking here.

When: November 13 – 17
What: Devour! The Food Film Fest
Where: Wolfville, Nova Scotia
Why: You can catch short and feature-length films on food, with enticing titles like Mussels in Love and Kiss the Water. Also, there’s an amazing line-up of workshops on food photography, screenwriting and food styling, among other things. Our top pick (OK, a little biased, perhaps, it’s being co-run by Reader’s Digest contributor, Aube Giroux), is the session on Creating Culinary Content for the Web.
On the Menu: Pop-up dining events, wine tours and the chance to spend five days with people as obsessed with food as you are.
