Just a few of the shots that I took during one of the best foodie events that I have ever experienced. The charity event was a sellout and raised funds in support for Second Harvest Toronto which feeds the needy in Toronto.  It is truly amazing that Second Harvest delivered 6.4 million pounds of food to those in need in our city of Toronto. Almost 40 percent of those affected are children. As a Chef myself, this is truly a cause that I can fully support and urge those who have time, resources and ideas on how to support the charity to contact them directly.  This annual event is one of the hottest tickets in Toronto and draws foodies from all over! If given the opportunity to attend again I would in a heartbeat.
