Recipe for Change was an amazing event. Over 30 of Toronto’s top chefs were at St. Lawrence Hall to share small plates and bites of their delicious creations. VQA wines from Niagara, freshly made coffee from Crema Coffee Co. and Bloody Caesar cocktails from Walter All Natural Craft Caesar Mix were on hand to quench your thirst.
Here are some of my favourite dishes from the night!
Culinary Students from Bendale Business & Technical Institute/ Eastdale Collegiate Institute Atlantic Salt Cod Fritters with Cilantro and Watercress Pesto from Bendale Gardens. These were amazing hot and fresh right from the oven!
Santo Pecado, Paola Solórzano Chicken Chilaquiles Mexico City style. I was unfamiliar with this fantastic dish! Corn tortillas are cut up and fried, then topped with salsa, cream, shredded queso fresco and other toppings. In Mexico the tortillas are served as crisp as possible.
I also really, really loved the mead from Rosewood Estates Winery. They brought a special variety from the winery that isn’t sold in stores yet. It was well balanced and on the sweeter side. I want to buy a bottle!
