Another year, another Taste of Toronto with American Express

Taste of Toronto is a weekend-long food festival and one of the hottest festivals of the summer, taking place June 23-26 at Garrison Common at Fort York. The festival brings together foodies and chefs alike to celebrate the top restaurants and food providers in the city. For the third time in a row, American Express Canada is a major sponsor of the festival, giving Cardmembers exclusive access to delicious perks through Amex Invites. Cardmembers have access to perks like Priority Line entry to the festival, reserve seating at tastings and classes, and exclusive access to the American Express Lounge.


With all the activities and delicious food on offer, there is plenty to get up to at Taste of Toronto. We are especially looking forward to the Metro Master Classes led by some of the top chefs in the city. You can look forward to sessions led by Kanpai’s Trevor Lui, Barque’s David Neinstein and Mark McEwan. These classes fill up fast, but American Express Cardmembers can rest easy because there will be reserved, front row seating available on a first come, first served basis exclusively for Amex Cardmembers.


While the Master Classes are a good way to sharpen your culinary skills, you can also train your taste buds at the wine tasting sessions. In addition to all the gourmet pairings, we can’t wait to learn from the leading winemakers and chefs in the industry! Cardmembers can also enjoy reserved seating to these tasting sessions where they will learn the subtlety of wine tasting and the marriage between wine and food.


On top of that, American Express Cardmembers also get reserved seating at the Taste Theatre, where chefs like Elia Herrera of Los Colibris, Michael Hunter of Antler Kitchen & Bar, and Victor Barry of Piano will be conducting live and interactive demos!


But there’s more – – Cardmembers get exclusive access to the American Express Lounge, where they can take advantage of complimentary snacks and water, special programming sessions and a private bar as well as a crown top-up machine

Taste of Toronto is sure to be a weekend filled with delicious tastings, informative classes, topped with gourmet and artisanal food.


Taste of Toronto is not the only place American Express Cardmembers get perks. Cardmembers can also enjoy Front Of The Line Access to some of the hottest events across the country, including advance screenings of blockbuster movies and seats to the most sought after Broadway shows and concerts..  For more information about these exclusive experiences check out!
