Delcious Food Show - Oct 21st Oct 23rd - Thoughts?

I was down at the bicycle show the other day and saw advertisement along the lakeshore about this Delicious Food Show happening on the 21st and 23rd of Oct.

Anyone gone before? Worth it? Is it like the wine and cheese expo which was super long wait lines and uber expensive "tickets"?

Thanks.

No one has gone before because it is the first year they are doing it :)

It is put on by the same people behind the One of a Kind show with support/sponsorship from Food Network.

I am taking the risk and going to go next weekend.

If you are interested in going, buy your tickets via Groupon today or tomorrow. They are a featured deal for Toronto area (look on the side bar). 2 for 1 admission ticket. I will be curious to see what happens but I figure to see some of the speakers it will be worth it for an afternoon of entertainment.

Should be a good show for any foodie.

Its anything to do with food, there are restaurants, food manufacturers, kitchen gadgets ect. Very small companies to very large companies participating.

Looks interesting but I'm wondering if tasting samples are only available on the Thursday opening night.
Those opting for the Delicious! opening night party get to observe the cuisine-conjuring skills of some of the top names in the comestibles industry, including chef Pat Newton and Chef Corbin, Dinner Party Wars. Throughout the evening, guests are encouraged to partake in cocktail and gourmet food samples whipped up by notable food caterers.
From Fri - Sun I don't see anything about actually tasting food.
The Food Network Delicious Food Show engages consumers with a delectable opening party followed by three days of cooking demonstrations, hands-on food seminars, and live presentations from celebrity chefs.

Definitely you will find companies sampling food for the whole show. Any manufacturing company who hopes to promote their product will. Will there be a lot of sampling though? Depends on the mix of companies.

Now that I've looked through the list of exhibitors you're probably right. Hopefully it will be like the Good Food Festival (back in it's heyday)

Well really, it has to be better than the current Good Food Festival.

I'm expecting this show to be one pretty good, the one of a kind show is a good show and I don't think they would attempt to half ass a big show like this that has a lot of potential. We don't have any really good food shows in Toronto anymore.

This is the first year though so I think they will pull out the stops for presenters/demonstrations and if it goes well you'll see an even larger lift in exhibitors next year.

Can't you just take the Go Train to exhibition to get there?

I scored tickets to the VIP night, wow was it a great show.

I don't know how the VIP night will vary from the regular days, other then I don't think they'll be giving out the same amount of free drinks(Free Tall Boy upon entering, Free Vodka, Mixed Drinks, Wine, Ice Wine). But there was a lot of samples, a lot more food companies than I expected. Lesser known food companies, smaller, but a lot of higher end or gourmet type companies.

A lot of the items being sold are a bit more expensive, but thats understandable since it is smaller gourmet type companies.

This show was much more classy than the Good Food Festival or other food shows I've been to.
