Toronto Catering Showcase 2016

Over 300 food enthusiasts came together to enjoy the inaugural Toronto Catering Showcase presented by EventSource.ca on October 16, 2016. The grand event took place at the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon, where guests got to indulge in culinary delights prepared by 12 of Toronto’s most notable catering companies.




The Toronto Catering Showcase allowed guests to enjoy an afternoon of pure epicurean indulgence (pictures below). The event was $65 all-in, and provided all-inclusive access to culinary masterpieces, wines and craft beers from the top caterers in the Toronto area. Besides the delicious dishes, the event also featured local wines by the renowned Peller Estates, and a wide selection of craft beer provided by Brew Box Co.

Overall, the event was very well organized, and all 12 caterers were spaced out accordingly. There was a lot of room to walk around, and plenty of seating available. The event was also the perfect opportunity to scope out potential caterers for an upcoming event or wedding. However, it wasn't limited to those looking for event planning, Toronto Catering Showcase was fun for couples, families, and everyday culinary connoisseurs.
