Festival of Chefs with Corrado and Gushue

Saturday, May 24th Ted Corrado of C5 whipped up some gourmet goodies for the crowd, including a marinated octopus salad, all delicious and tentacle-y. Mmmm.

On Sunday, Jonathan Gushue and CheeseB provided a near-criminal amount of delicious and abundant fare....


Links of cured sausage were handed out to patrons


And there was much Chocolate...

James Chatto awaiting a cup and saucer

Chatto, writer for Toronto Life and Food and Drink, among other things, blogged his perspective on this whole shin-dig here.


A saucerful of fava bean puree topped with parmigiano-reggiano infused yogurt-- and a sprinkle of toasted cumin



Afrim wheels out a barrel filled with locally-produced goat cheese, marinating these past three months in Malivoire Old vines Marechal Foch wine.



Stained a dark purple on the outside...



The cheese remains milky white inside-- it stays in the Barrel for a few more months.

Wine was provided by B&W Wines represented by Howard Wasserman.

And that was the second last weekend of the festival-- only one more to go so if you haven't made it out yet this is your last chance-- at least for a year. Details of the fifth and final weekend coming soon... stay tuned.
