I’m really looking forward to this year’s Terroir at Hart House on Tuesday. The theme this year is Innovation & Inspiration
My three favourite sessions were:
- Mirella Amato of Beerology and Kathleen MacIntosh, Ontario Cheese Society & Culinarium
- Panel on Creating a Culinary Destination
- Chef Owen Steinberg’s Flavour Development Seminar
One of the sessions at Terroir 2009 was Chef Owen Steinberg’s session on flavour development.
Using a squash soup as the basis, he took us through the flavour development step by step. it was a fascinating exploration of flavour, taste and the layering of flavours.
Lunch was excellent and the closing keynote by Mitchell Davis from the James Beard Foundation, who I also shared a breakfast table with, was inspirational!
Terroir is a must-attend event if you work in or write about the business of the Hospitality Industry.
