If this year’s anniversary event is anything like the one I attended last year, it will be deliciously satisfying.

  • Had to stop by @ottawapoutinefest to discover some new flavours. And what flavours I had @mr.panino with their gnocchi poutines! Poutine lovers will devour their signature dish (gnocchi, gravy, cheese curds with spicy Italian sausage😍😋) They also have the ‘world poutine’ (marinara sauce, cheese curds, sautéed spicy Italian sausage, sweet peppers, Parmesan cheese, mushrooms, onions and kalamata olives) The festival continues till 6pm Sunday. #foodies #foodporn #foodphotography #foodgasm #instafood #poutine #ottawapoutinefest #nomnom #supportlocal #supportlocalbusiness #ottawaeats #foodblogger #foodtruck #ottawafoodtruck
  • A lovely time thinking back to when I met the highly talented and renown chef/owner of @joebeefmtl @vinpapillon @vinmonlapin @liverhouse David McMillan. We met at the Mission Possible soirée in Montreal - a collaborative dinner of several tasty restaurants to raise funds for the Mile End Community Mission. An great time was had and for a well deserved cause! #tbt #foodie #foodies #chef #cheflife #montrealfood #montrealrestaurant #charity #charityevent #mileendmtl #mileendcommunitymission #foodblogger #raisingawareness #raisingmoney #celebritychef #montreal #givingback #givingbacktothecommunity #givingbackfeelsgood #gratitude
  • The many courses I had @cabaneaupieddecochon This year’s gluttony fest was inspired by Morocco. Everything from a foie gras cake, puff omelette with cumin, a delicious piglet stuffed 3 ways, a salmon ‘kefte’ dish, sausage stuffed calamari, some tagine dishes and ofcourse some decadently rich desserts. Dishes were uniquely presented and most of them had a foie gras component to them😋 Till next year!! #foodie #foodporn #foodpornshare #foodblogger #nomnom #instafood #gluttony #chefmartinpicard #mapleseason #sugarshack #overindulgence #foodcoma #travelblogger #bucketlist #foodphotography #foodexplorer #foodlover #somuchfood #somuchfun
