2017 FOOD VENDORS

Daniel grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada and studied mathematics & philosophy before heading west to Vancouver to pursue his culinary career.  Upon receiving his apprenticeship, he headed to England and landed a job in pastry at the fat duck restaurant under Heston Blumenthal.  After three years, he went to Copenhagen and became the first pastry chef and eventually also the sous chef of restaurant Noma in 2006, where he embraced terroir, seasonality and the pursuit of excellence.

In 2013 Daniel gave life to Tørst & Luksus, an elegant craft beer bar and tasting menu restaurant in Brooklyn.  Luksus earned its Michelin star in 2015 and to this day, is the sole restaurant to receive a star pairing only beer.  Phaidon published his first book to share the story and beauty of Tørst & Luksus.

PG Clucks is a fried chicken shack downtown Toronto, specializing in sandwiches and Nashville style hot chicken. All our chicken is deboned leg meat. We brine it for 24 hrs. in a lemon and herb brine, and 6 hours in buttermilk. We dredge it twice for that extra crispness.

Christmas lights hang year-round at this homey haunt serving classic breakfasts, burgers & beers.

Birreria Volo (beer-ah-ria) is an Italian inspired beer hall tucked away within a historic alleyway next to the Royal Cinema in Toronto’s Little Italy. From the brothers of Bar Volo, this narrow space specializes in hard to find rustic and wild ales, natural wine, cider and snacks. Our tables are communal, service is at the bar and our selection is always rotating.

Southwestern Ontario's premier artisanal cheese company. We use only seasonal milk from responsible practice. At Monforte, we're convinced the small things do indeed make a difference, that agriculture is best practiced on a human scale, and that our cheeses, each in its own way, reflect something a little deeper than the technology behind mass manufactured food - a little of the poetry and passion of life itself.

Sanagan's Meat locker is a chef-driven butcher shop that sources the highest quality and best tasting meats and foodstuffs from Ontario family farms while providing an attentive, educated, and customized service experience.
