Canadian Women in Food will "Stir You Up"!

On October 22nd we had the pleasure of showcasing some of our favourite canapés at an event organized by Canadian Women in Food, a community network that encourages women to participate and thrive in the food industry.  The focus of the night was a talk about Kickstarter fundraising led by Christine Manning, Founder of Manning Canning and Co-Founder of Manning Canning Kitchens. Within its first year of business, the 24-hour rental kitchen has aided the growth of a handful of small food businesses across Toronto, including Phat N' Phull!

Christine shared her Kickstarter story, along with some do's, dont's and how-to's about crowd funding. However, what inspired us most was her personal drive and fearless ability to make her vision a reality, not to forget the extensive planning that went with it!

The menu: Triple-decker grilled cheese with pimento cheese and tomato jam and oyster jambalaya rockefeller on the half shell.

Beautiful display of Thornloe cheese curated by Pamela Hamel! Thornloe is a Northern Ontario cheese company that is 100% farmer owned, that makes delicious cheese inspired by its hometown Temiskaming. 

Christine being inspiring and lovely.

Our oyster jambalaya is one of our southern inspired snacks that we made rockefeller style with Thornloe's 2-year-old cheddar. Delicious when fresh out of the oven!

These were some of the best I've ever had, from Joli Macarons. Flavours include boozy bourbon, doppio espresso and super berry.

We don't seem to go anywhere without our grilled cheese these days! How could we not?

Did we mention Christine is also the chef of her preserves company?

Us with Cheryl, founder of Canadian Women in Food!
