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

This delectable event brings together some of the finest chefs from the best restaurants, professionals from the culinary industry, in addition to showcasing local and seasonal products from the area. Excite your senses with an array of gourmet flavors, from here and afar, including a wide variety of wines. – Rendez-vous des saveurs

  • What an incredible evening at the @casinolacleamy Baccara restaurant last night. I had the pleasure of tasting Montreal's famed Chef @martin_juneau dishes and was pleasantly surprised when he presented me with a personalized signed cookbook! A beautiful and memorable evening! #thefoodtease #foodiegram #chef #cheflife #restaurant #foodblogger #foodie #gratitude #gatineau #gatineaurestaurant #lovemyjob #nomnom #hotinthekitchen #luxlife
  • Being surrounded by thousands upon thousands of marigolds during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead Festival) and taking part of the festivities @xcaretpark in Mexico was a special and memorable experience. @xcaretpark has a variety of activities to experience during the festival. It is believed that the scent of the marigold flower guides loved ones who have passed on, to find their way back home during this special time. An amazing press trip! #tbt #thefoodtease #press #presstrip #diasdelosmuertos #dayofthedead #festival #travel #travelpic #travelgram #travelphoto #travelblogger #instatraveling #onceinalifetimeexperience #marigold #mexico #mexicanfestival #gratitude #bucketlist #traveling
