Toronto Taste, an annual culinary fundraiser in support of Toronto food rescue and delivery program Second Harvest, marked its 23rd year at the ROM on Sunday. The yearly gourmet event showcased over 60 of the city’s finest chefs and over 35 beverage purveyors. Not only were food enthusiasts greeted with delicious culinary creations, they also had the opportunity to mingle with some of the city’s most celebrated chefs, namely Top Chef Canada judge Mark McEwan and Michael Smith, cookbook author and host of Chef Michael’s Kitchen. Unlike previous years where pork belly, bacon and sliders dominated the festival, this year’s Toronto Taste featured a variety of seafood-oriented dishes, in particular smoked, cured fish.
