There are a few things in life that I truly love to indulge and on Tuesday, October 22, I had the gluttonous pleasure of tasting an amazing assortment of food at the 18th Annual Eat to the Beat Fundraiser. Held in the heart of Downtown Toronto at the Roy Thompson Hall, foodies and supporters of Eat to the Beat and Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada gathered for a culinary tasting featuring 60 talented female chefs. Among the many delicious bites, we loved the:
Chicken Thai Noodle Salad in a Banana Leaf Bowl (Chef Nuit Regular, Sabai Sabai Kitchen & Bar)
Crêpes and Limonana (Chef Véronique, Crêpes à GoGo)
Flourless Chocolate Brownie (Kyla Eaglesham, Madeleines, Cherry Pie and Ice Cream)
Pecan Pie Macaron (Michelle Edgar, Sweet Escape Patisserie)
We also enjoyed spotting the beautiful food inspired corsets — many of which were created and modeled by breast cancer survivors. From Grapes of Wrath to the Queen of Tarts, these corsets were creative and beautiful. We also found Captain Crunch, Strawberry Shortcake, Peking Duck and others!
Overall, we loved the vibe and sense of community that this event creates. It’s definitely a hub that should be on every Foodie’s Wish List and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year. This year, Eat to the Beat raised $199,077 towards Willow Breast Cancer Canada. If you would like to add a donation, please visit Willow.org/donate.
