Delicious Food Show

The Delicious Food Show is a new event coming to Toronto October 20-23 at The Better Living Centre. Does anyone know what to expect here? Is it worth going? Thoughts?

  1. There was another thread on this but hard to find it because of the thread title. Link here:

    But might be worthwhile to continue discussion in your thread because of the title of old one.

    Anyway, I ended up getting the Dealfind deal for 2 for 1 tickets. My suggestion would be to keep an eye out for other deal on tickets because if you have to pay for admission price I am not sure if it will be "worth it". I will try post about my experiences after the show (not sure which day I will be going yet).

      YLSF when did this Dealfind offer come up?? I was hoping to get 2 for 1 deal for the show.. Can't believe I missed it!

        September 23rd. I posted about it in the other thread but I guess it got lost in the forum because of the "mysterious title" ... If I see any other deals I will post it in this thread.

          Thanks. I had found that 'mysterious title' when it first was posted but lost it, searched and searched and never found it back.

    2. Groupon has a 2-for-1 deal.. only 15 more people need to buy!

      1. The "VIP" event got a good review by a user on RFD...

        See his post here:

        1. Anyone go yesterday? Heading down today and will post up my findings tonight.

          1. Show was pretty decent. Not a huge show (In the Better Living centre) so seemed like a lot less floor ground than something like the One of a Kind show but the food area was bigger than the food section at the One of A Kind. A lot of similar vendors as One of A Kind because of the show being put on by the same people but some other vendors as well. I ended up spending most of the day there, I took advantage of the various talks/demos and I found the value in that. Oyster shucking, molecular gastronomy, caviar, salmon curing, etc. Got some free vodka too. Tried a bunch of random samples, bought some food items to take home but pretty much just ate on samples. Le Societe was set up as a "bistro" type thing with patio furniture, etc. I didn't take a look at their food but I saw their pricing was pretty high. Curious how it was if anyone tried it.
            For the 2 for 1 price I would say it was worth it, a good entertaining day.
