When I was invited by Longo’s to be a Taste Ontario Ambassador in August I started working on Taste Ontario, Taste the World. I wanted to showcase Ontario ingredients from a World Cuisine perspective by hosting a cooking demo/dinner for some of Toronto’s foodies, bloggers, influencers and twitterati. A perfect fit for the range a [...]
We have 20 bloggers, influencers and folks-about town coming in for a cooking demo with Matt cooking 5 International dishes all from Longo’s shelves and each dish featuring an Ontario product.
This is Taste Ontario, Taste the World
Because life is never boring, Thursday night’s dinner deal lined up with a HoHoTO sponsorship team meeting. Of course that means a great opportunity to feed a group!
So, guess who brought the pizza? (Okay, it was Gerry because I was busy getting things lined up for our meeting.)
Gerry picked up three 16” pepperoni pizzas at the Elizabeth Str [...]

This is a one-night-only demo dinner entitled: Ta [...]
Last week I told you about our Longo’s Meets CheapEats adventure, a day when we ate every single meal in Longo’s Maple Leaf Square store. Well you didn’t think we’d leave out their $6.99 Daily Dinner Deals did you?
Of course not!
So we spent a week eating Longo’s Dinner Nights Done Right for dinner every day. Some were fantastic, some were [...]
It’s past time for another Longo’s giveaway and this time rather than hand picking a big bag of perishable goodies I’ve decided to give you a Longo’s gift card for $20.
This way you can spend it on the goodies you would like to put in the bag yourself! Vegetables, coffee, meat, cheese, sauces, chocolate, or just stock up on garlic
Here’s How [...]
It’s time for me to give away another big bag of Longo’s goodies to one of you lucky readers!
As many of you know, I spent most of yesterday at Longo’s Maple Leaf Square location. I ate, I shopped, and I hung out in the Loft. I also visited Corks Beer and Wine Bar, conveniently located in the Loft!
Corks serves a great list of Ontario wine [...]
As part of the Taste Ontario Ambassador Series I asked Longo’s to make it possible for me to share my tastes and experiences with you guys through a monthly giveaway of some of the Taste Ontario produce and Longo’s products.
Of course I don’t have enough to give everyone (wouldn’t that be nice!), so I’ll be having a monthly contest and pickin [...]
As I mentioned in my announcement about the Longo’s Taste Ontario Ambassador Program, it was a pleasant surprise to find out that my friend Joel Solish was participating as well.
Joel has put up his announcement post here and addresses his reasons for being involved and a couple of points I missed: Longos: Taste Ontario Ambassador Prog [...]

Along with Joel Solish of communityfoodist.com I will be getting an insiders view of Longo’s, their Taste Ontario program, their stores and their long s [...]
Did a little photoshoot on the Romansco Cauliflower I got from Longo’s on Friday… played with the colour a little to see what was what and this what we got.
Love the pointy little flowers. Not only beautiful but tasty!
