The best party I can think of features beer, meats and cheeses. But visiting individual breweries, cheese mongers and butchers to put together the perfect selection takes time, so I jumped at the chance to attend an event specifically highlighting those three items and more.
The first annual Canadian Artisan Tasting Fair took place at Wychwood Barns and drew a crowd of discerning shoppers.
There were local cheeses,
Traditionally aged charcuterie,
Ontario craft beers,
Amazing food truck items,
And even doughnuts!
The highlight of the event was being able to interact with the artists who had crafted these delights. They were clearly proud of their work!
While at $35 ticket it is a hefty investment to start, there was no shortage of sampling opportunities, and even if you came on an empty stomach you left full and happy. I heard more than a few people say (in a completely satisfied voice and holding heavy shopping bags) “I’m all cheese’d out!”.
