Harvest in June?

The spectacular weather weekends in Toronto keep on happening and its lending itself very well for events such as the Second Harvest annual event Toronto Taste. This year's event was held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. Cheese Boutique was among over 50 of the best that Toronto has to offer such as Scaramouche, Canoe, JK Kitchens.....hmmmm, starting to sound like an encore of Festival of Chefs all packed into one night!

Second Harvest has over 20 years of delivering fresh food supplies for feeding those in need. The event goes a long way in supporting the cause where participants can sample all. I overheard many establishments calling out how they intended to not leave home without polishing off all that they brought with them to share. Silent auction, wine auction, raffles and more made for an entertaining event...and the shots of course below.

Cuisine & Cuvée & Cheese Boutique

Cheese Boutique is never short of being busy. Not a couple of days past the May 2007 Festival of Chefs and they are right back out in the community to share, educate and promote.

On Tuesday June 5th, 2007, Cheese Boutique in its 7th consecutive outing proudly supported Providence Healthcare Foundation in their annual fundraiser. The pics exhibit a peek of the scene in the Governor's Ballroom at Liberty Grand, Exhibition Place.

Congratulations to Providence Healthcare as they celebrate their 150th anniversary.

11 months until the May Festival of Chefs... 2008!

The 2007 May Festival of Chefs was without a doubt the best yet. The food was exceptional and the weather was superb! Alas, the month long party came to a close to leave the palette only wanting more.

The final weekend hosted Executive Chef Anthony Walsh of Canoe and JK Kitchens very own proprietor and Executive Chef, Jamie Kennedy.
