This was the name of the show we went to today in Toronto, thanks to Michelle. There was a fabulous range of handcrafted products – beautiful jewellery, paintings, ceramics, soaps, clothes and food by over 450 artisans from all over Canada. We came home loaded with presents for upcoming birthdays and lots of goodies (mostly food!) for ourselves, having tasted almost everything on offer! Beautiful balsamic reductions, roasted soybeans flavoured with balsamic vinegar or maple syrup (those are the flavours as chosen by Simon for his lunchbox which has to be nut-free – they look and taste like nuts but they aren’t!), smoked salmon pate, cassoulet, maple butter maple and fig jelly, apple syrup with maple (we are in Canada, after all!) and cinnamon – all delicious on pancakes, seville orange marmalade, dried cranberries, chocolate almond brittle and so much more!
As on a previous shopping trip in Melbourne, when Simon had been reluctant to go shopping with his sisters, he was the one to buy the most! And he wasn’t even going to come along!
