I’m so jazzed to attend my first Toronto Food & Wine Festival this weekend at Evergreen Brick Works – especially knowing that there will be a Magnum booth at the event! I have to hand it to my city for being at the pinnacle of its foodie game. How lucky are we, as Torontonians, to have all these amazing opportunities to eat, drink and be merry – right in our own backyard. I certainly feel extremely lucky (and proud) to live in a city that celebrates food as much as we do.
Over the course of three days, the 2015 Toronto Food & Wine Festival invites us to experience some of the best culinary talents in our city and country. At the Grand Tasting Pavilion you’ll find local restaurants, wineries and breweries. There will be everything from fan-favourite, local and international celebrity chefs to cooking classes and tutored tastings – and of course, my personal favourite, the Magnum booth. In fact, if you follow along on social media you can enter the #MagnumMoment contest from Sept 15th -24th for your chance to win a dinner for 2 at Rasa ($150 value).
All you have to do is share your #MagnumMoment on social media – a photo of you enjoying your Magnum ice cream bar with a glass of wine or a delicious meal – or whatever you think speaks to the yumminess of chocolate coated ice cream. Be creative! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. If you need any help taking your pic or can’t finish the ice cream bar alone, tweet me @justineiaboni!
And you should also stop by the Magnum booth to take a selfie with me (and/or the ice cream bar). Just sayin’ I’ll be there on Saturday stuffing my face with my guard down.
