This August, Toronto is all about tapas! Vv Magazine loves tapas and we want to share the yumminess with you. Check out this amazing contest and win a week full of tapas enjoyment with three friends!
Are you a tapas junkie like us? If you’re nodding yes, listen up. Not only is one of 2014’s best culinary events back bigger and better, we also get a week-long Tapas Journey to partake in just before the big event. And there’s more… We are giving away a special tapas package so you can really enjoy what our city has to offer without spending a dime! Have we caught your attention yet? Good – read on…
First thing’s first! Beginning this Friday August 14th and running until the 23rd, the Tapas Journey festival launches its first year and is the perfect way to start off a week of tapas indulgences. Toronto’s top 20 tapas restaurants will be offering foodies a special tapas menu that includes three items plus one Estrella, all for just $20. Seriously – good deal. So we say grab your passport (your tapas passport, that is) and start collecting stamps at all these fantastic Toronto restaurants because, as icing on the cake, there is a potential prize for those who are diligent about collecting their stamps: Estrella Damm is giving away a trip to their gastronomy conference in Miami, featuring tapas legend Ferran Adria.
Now, even if your passport doesn’t get quite full enough, you can still head over to PintxosTO on Sunday the 23rd. It’s no secret that last year’s first edition of PintxosTO—brought to us by Toronto’s culinary events genius and owner of Spotlight City Events, Suresh Doss—was a huge hit. But this year it’s back and plans on wowing even more. Also partnered with Estrella Damm, this year PintxosTO is being held at the Royal Bank Plaza and will feature 12 vendors from some of Toronto’s best restaurants as well as some esteemed out-of-towners that are sure to impress.
If you weren’t able to make it last year, think of all the best chefs… and then think of them all in one spot on the same day. We’re talking Grant Van Gameren of Bar Isabel and Bar Raval, Rob Gentile of the Buca legacy, Stuart Cameron of Patria, Rob Bragagnolo of Marben, Luis Valenzuela of Carmen and many more. These guys don’t play when it comes Spanish tapas and it was a festival to remember. This year isn’t any different with additional superstar chefs including Victor Barry of Splendido and Chris McDonald of Barsa Taberna, who we know will wow with their culinary delights.
Given that we love tapas so much, we wanted to give you the opportunity to experience it the way it should be. We’re giving away 4 PinxtosTO tickets plus $100 in gift certificates for Tapas Journey so you and your friends can experience tapas all week long!
HOW TO WIN: It’s easy. Are you a Canadian citizen living in the GTA, and are you 19 years of age or over? Well, if you’ve met all that criteria, then all you have to do is comment below telling us what your favourite tapas dish is.
