Love cheese? We suggest you enter our latest contest….
Love cheese? Who doesn’t…. the cheese cave trend is growing in Toronto (as our team discovered earlier this year) and TOCA at the Ritz-Carlton is sharing its passion for artisanal cheeses with a new event series centered around its exclusive Cheese Cave. TOCA’s Cheese Cave Event Series will launch on Saturday, December 5 at 3p.m. with a focus on local cheese producers.
And jumping into the Christmas season, we are feeling generous! One lucky Vv Magazine reader will win two tickets to experience the very first of the TOCA event series.
“The first thing I look for when I’m selecting a cheese for TOCA is of course the taste; after that I look for the story. Every cheese has to have a unique quality or story to tell – that’s what excites me the most and I love to share that with my guests,” said Head Chef Jitin Gaba, TOCA.
TOCA’s Cheese Cave Event Series will be led by Head Chef Jitin Gaba, who is a trained “fromager” (can we say what a great career choice?!), General Manager Peter Muir who has extensive experience working with artisanal products and Sommelier Lorie O’Sullivan is known for shaking up typical wine and cheese pairing ideas, bringing a unique flair and passion for educating and exciting guests.
Highlights of what can be expected at these events include cheddar and beer, fondue and scotch and soft cheeses with champagne. Guests will learn how to taste cheese and identify flavour profiles, tips for entertaining at home and more.
OK, are you aching to check this out? Lucky for you, two of our readers will win tickets to the first event, Canada’s Award-Winning Cheese Tasting Experience, being held on December 5th (from 3pm to 4:30pm). Enjoy some of the best cheese our country has to offer paired with local and International wines.
