The beautiful Fort York National Historic Site is the setting for one of the top global food festivals – Tastemaker Toronto.

A large group of chefs dressed in aprons and other chef attire sit down to a feast at a beautifully-set table in the middle of the field. The chefs hold up their glasses in a toast, smiling at the camera.

One of the Top Global Food Festivals

Fort York is transformed into a foodie wonderland for four days of summer eating, drinking and entertainment. The city’s latest, greatest and hottest restaurants dish up their best in an al fresco gourmet feast. Top that off with over 70 producers of the finest food, beverages and premium brands providing a bountiful food market, and you have a can’t-miss culinary festival.

Features include the master classes, the Chef’s Table – where you can chat with chefs and ask culinary masters your cooking questions – Taste Theatre and a music stage. For a slight premium you can have access to the VIP bar and lounge in association with The Drake.

Operating much like a restaurant with lunch and dinner services, the festival comprises six half-day sessions, which last four to five hours and give guests the time to savour their pick of restaurant dishes, browse the artisan stalls and enjoy the many attractions all in a lush outdoor setting.

The chef line-up ranges from household names to emerging super stars. Grant van Gameran (Bar Isabel and Bar Raval), Trevor Lui (Kanpai Snackbar) and Claudia Bianchi (Actinolite) are just a few of the leading culinary masterminds in Canadian cuisine brought together by Tastemaker Toronto.
