The smell of freshly baked bread and pastries, the small town feeling, friendly and welcoming neighbourhood that is what Riverside is known for, but it is also at the top of the list when it comes to Culinary Destination.
On October 26th, during the 5th Annual Riverside WalkFEST 2013, you can enjoy a free culinary walking tour and lick the sweet taste of Riverside. Led by a renowned Chef Scott Savoie from Culinary Adventure Co, this walk will feature some of the best bakeries, cupcakeries and chocolate shops in Toronto that will gratify your taste bud and make you crave for more.
From sweet floral surprise, flaky and buttery to decadent and sinful – this walk is an indulgence that you won’t forget. Samples and tastings will be provided for you throughout the tour, so you can choose your favourite and take some home to satisfy your sweet tooth. The Sweet Culinary Tour will begin at 2:30pm at Quince Flowers. This walk is all about walking indulgence and this is your chance to experience the sweet side of the east end.
Some of the stop places on this tour are: Mary Macleod’s buttery melt-in-the-mouth shortbread, a cookie so delicately balanced, rich and extraordinarily delicious that it had once declared as one of the best shortbread in Toronto (and it is Mick Jagger’s favourite shortbread).
Bonjour Brioche known as the neighbourhood’s favourite breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch spot. Lines snake out the door on weekends as brunch-goers wait their turn for delicious eggs benny, buttery croissants, fresh baguettes and, of course, delicious sweet brioche.
To top it all off, sweet dessert wine from Wine Rack, what could be better than this smooth finish.
