Giveaway: Taste Ontario Taste the World at Longo’s Nov 30

As part of my Longo’s Taste Ontario Ambassador adventure, I just got approval to take over the Longo’s Loft on Nov 30th and host an evening withChef Matt Kantor Chef Matt Kantor of LittleKitchen.ca and my partner in the Secret Pickle Supper Club cooking international dishes featuring Ontario products.

This is a one-night-only demo dinner entitled:  Taste Ontario, Taste the World.

This is intimate, private Longo’s-sponsored event for a small number of invited guests, and two of you!

Matt’s going to be preparing 5 dishes featuring Ontario grown or produced ingredients from Longo’s (we’ll be shopping earlier in the day) which you can make at home.

You’ll get to see how Matt does it and watch me attempt to help.  You get a great dinner and  leave with the recipes and shopping list to do it yourself at home.

In addition, the folks at Corks, Longo’s beer & wine bar, will be sharing a glass or two of Ontario’s finest to go along with the meal.

Here’s how to enter:

  • Tell me your favourite cuisine.
  • you can get a second entry if you tell me your favourite dish from that cuisine.
  • enter in the comments below

Yes, it’s that’s simple!

Things You Should Know:

  • You have to be able to attend the event in Toronto the evening of Nov 30th
  • We’ll be doing 2 draws, one for each ticket.
  • The demo will include meat, Ontario-raised meat. So vegetarians and vegans, much as I love you, this one is not for you.
  • 2 Winners will be selected Friday Nov 25th and contacted.  If for any reason they have not confirmed attendance, I will do another draw on Monday.

It’s going to be a great evening, so good luck!

    I think this is a case of me growing up with it but I’m a big fan of German Cuisine. When ever I have it I just feel warm and relax. As for favorite its hard to say but Rouladen is always a nice treat to have with some Spaetzle and red cabbage. Arg, I’m getting hungry now!

    Wow, picking one cuisine is always tough. Over time, I’ve been torn between Italian, Greek, Japanese, Thai, and so many more.
    Right now, I’m thinking that French may be my favorite cuisine. It’s a staple of fine dining, and when done well, it can be divine.
    I’m especially happy when someone knows how to make a good potato gratin, so delicious, so hearty, so simple.

    I’m really partial to Eastern European cuisine, such as the stuff made in my mothers kitchen. My first instinct was to say cabbage rolls, which I discovered is also a Jewish thing (which makes total sense)
    In the end my vote is for pierogis which are a huge part of my Polish roots.

    I’m in love with Alsatian – the idea of mixing a gental and skilled French hand with German comfort food is just the greatest idea ever.
    Thank you Elle M’a Dit for that.
    How you gonna say no to braised pork belly with sausage fried brussle spouts?

    Many people would probably deny this but…I am a fan of traditional British Isles fare. Not pub fare, but foods that have been staples for centuries. Blood pudding, neeps, stovies, cawl…and yes…I will gladly and willingly eat haggis!
    I’m fond of any technique that allows me to use up every part of my butcher’s purchase!

    Although I love French cuisine, my favorite is definitely Japanese – they have anything from really simple (soba, sushi) to extremely elaborate (kaiseiki style). Their food presentation is almost always very nice.
    My favorite Japanese dish is unagi donbouri – simple, cheap and delicious!

    hmmmm…. so many good cuisine options. I sort of love them all! My Default favorite though has to be Thai food. Just love how all the flavours balance each other off perfectly.
    and for my bonus entry, I’d say my favourite dish… oh gosh there’s so many… but let’s keep it simple and say Mango Salad (impossible to find good mango’s in local markets!)
    Of course I also love ginger beef, lemongrass anything, proper pad thai (which is hard to find), coconut milk anything, and on and on and on….

    Hands down, anything South Asian. From Assam to Uttar Pradesh, I love it all!
    Picking a favourite dish would be like Sophie’s Choice 😉

    There’s just something about Hakka food and especially Chilli Chicken that I can’t get enough of. It’s the only type of food that’s also put me out literally at the table of the restaurant – best food coma ever!

    As much as I love French and Japanese cuisine, I still think Chinese cuisine is my favourite. If I could only pick one dish, my late craving would be dragon-style eel (steamed eel with garlic black bean chilli sauce).

    I’m always amorous about Saskatchewan dinners made by the loving hands of Eastern European immigrants. It reminds me of cozy dinners at my grandparents – bowls flowing with borscht, tangy sour cream topping tender perogies, and cabbage rolls stuffed with fragrant rice.
    Maybe I will go home for Christmas after all. 🙂
