The Food: served by George Brown students. At the pinot noir table, there were filet mignon sliders with caramelized onion marmalade. With sylvaner, there were sugar and spice pecans. The sweet wine table had three types of cheese, including fabulous aged Gouda from Thunder Bay Cheese. The two Riesling table wines were accompanied by coconut shrimp lollypops and ahi sno-cones. First rate matches.
The Downside: it was crowded because two of the five tables were mostly inaccessible -- the food was in the way and there was too much wine being poured at these dry Riesling tables (9 of the 13 wines were here). The layout could have been modified.
The Upside: some really good wines were on display, carefully matched with the food.
