It was our third year at Taste of Toronto and, once again, it did not disappoint. The annual food festival was drool worthy, and our experience was so much more memorable with our Amex Cardmember access. Through Amex, we got to take advantage of the Front Of The Line presale for tickets before they went on sale to the general public and also got faster entry into the grounds, thanks to the Amex Priority Line. We experienced everything we thought we would and as Amex Cardmembers, we got an added bonus of attending a private Masterclass session with Chef Cory Vitiello from The Harbord Room. We were able to make a delicious seafood bouillon! The class was definitely one of the highlights to our day. Cory was fantastic, the setting of the class was delightful and the process of creating the delicious dish was extremely enjoyable. We now have a new dish to add to our repertoire.
After checking out the different participating restaurants and all of their delicious food dishes, it was great to kick back and cool off in the Amex Lounge, available exclusively for Cardmembers. One of our favourite dishes was the Crispy Calamari Po-Boy by the McEwan Group! We also liked Piano Piano’s Veal Parm Sandwich – check out why we liked it on @AmexCanada’s Twitter Page.
