Savour Food & Wine is “a showcase of great food, restaurants, chefs, and beverages that happens every spring.” It’s run by The Restaurant Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (RANL), and this will be its 9th year.
Picture the traditional booth-style ordeal you associated with wine or beer shows, but with food booths (as well as other vendors, mainly drink, but non-food biz vendors too).
We sent Emily to cover it last year, and she wrote, “the balance of wine and liquor alongside the food make this more full bodied than the various wine, beer, and whiskey events sprinkled throughout the year. The ballroom was full but not sardine packed, with only small line-ups that waxed and waned rapidly enough to eat and drink continuously if you were flexible and kept moving.”
The event runs from 6:30-9:30, and tickets are $110. If you want to spend the night at the delta, there are two-person ticket’n’a’room packages for $244 or $344. Tickets can be booked by calling 739-6404, or visiting eventbrite.ca.
Again from Emily’s visit last year, “The range of restaurants that participated gave what is essentially a zillion-course tapas meal some serious texture … Chinched and their tacos, Five Brothers Cheese’ poutine, and India Gate’s mini-buffet were all deservedly popular, as they are outside of show night. The Spa at The Monastery broke the “booth” mould by luring show-goers with a simple strawberry dipped in chocolate into a pop-up beauty spa replete with free chair massages and make-overs.”
