This year, the 2020 Taste Canada Virtual Awards ceremony will be broadcasted live from the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on October 25, 2020 at 7:00pm EDT from Facebook.
The evening will start with a pre-show kitchen party, where our event Host Irene Matys will bring you an exciting and interactive conversation with guest Chefs Matt Basile and jW Foster! The Chefs will cook up party-worth nibbles, showcasing their favourite Canadian ingredients. Taste Canada and our partners want to connect all #TasteLovers to the incredible foods grown, raised and produced on Canadian soil.
This year’s winners of the Awards’ categories, both in English and French-language, will be announced from remote locations to celebrate this unique night in Canadian Food Writing. The Culinary Historians of Canada will also be announcing the inductees to the Hall of Fame.
During our Awards After Party, the Host and her guests will be announcing the winners of the Farm to Kitchen Community Harvest Recipe Contest. Together with our partner from Canola Eat Well, we’ll also announce the Gold and Silver winners of the student cooking competition Cooks the Books.
Its going to be a night of honouring and celebrating Canada’s incredible food writing talents and vital food producers! You won’t want to miss it!
The pre-show and after-party are presented and made possible by Egg Farmers of Canada.
