In recent years, Hamilton has become known for its booming culinary scene. To celebrate its emergence, the City of Hamilton introduced NOSH to the community late last year in 2016. NOSH stands for North Hamilton, Outlying communities, and South Hamilton, coincides with Small Business Week. It was created to showcase Hamilton's booming culinary scene. 
"Hamilton's emergence on a national scale is in part attributable to the rising food scene we have in the city," said Councillor Merulla, NOSH Honourary Chair. "From the restauranteurs, to the chefs, to the diners who are flocking to the various restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries, these great efforts are attracting more positive attention for Hamilton on a national scale, and I believed it was certainly time for the entire city to celebrate and support their efforts." - Councillor Sam Merulla
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend the 2nd Annual Nosh Food Tour with #HamOntFT where I was introduced to several local businesses in Hamilton.
