National Geographic recently rated Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market as the “World’s Best Food Market”, something Torontonians have known for years. Early Greek immigrants lived near the Market as they also worked as butchers, fish mongers and green grocers. St. George (Toronto’s first and oldest Greek Orthodox church) was founded to be near the Greek community.
This past Monday, almost 60 guests gathered at the Miele Kitchen above St. Lawrence Market for an evening of Greek cuisine with a bit of a Canadian twist. The ingredients for the were sourced from Canadian artisans and Scheffler’s Deli (Greek owned) located in St. Lawrence Market.
The approach with the wine was a little different this time with my friends’ Vicki and Jonas of Hinterland Wines (Prince Edward County) selecting the wines for the evening. Thank you Vicki and Jonas, everyone loved your bang-on wine pairings with the food!
