The National Women’s Show Toronto edition was held Friday through Sunday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  As usual, there were exhibitors from many industries, ranging from fashion and beauty to food, travel and more.  In addition, there were demonstrations and fashion shows.  All in all, the event was a great deal of fun – […]

Toronto Food and Wine Festival: Starts Friday!

The inaugural Toronto Food and Wine Festival (formerly known as the Delicious Food Show) starts on September 18!  Sure, it has a very similar name to that OTHER food and wine event in November (but I’m sure no one will be confused), the website makes it sound a bit more casual and more consumer-focused.  And […]

Happy Fifth Birthday, DelectablyChic!

Today is my birthday.  Incidently, it is also DelectablyChic!‘s birthday.  Five years ago today, the two year old Prospere Magazine became DelectablyChic!.  Though there were a couple of posts which went live before September 1, 2010, the first “official” post was a restaurant review of Cantine, located on Avenue Road, just north of Bloor. What […]

Chocolate Cheese, Kefir Drinks and Other SIAL 2015 Highlights

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend SIAL 2015 this year.  I went for the first time in 2013, the last time they were in Toronto, an event which switches back and forth between our city and Montreal.  Each year, a country is featured (this year was Indonesia), while other countries also present their items […]

IDS 2015 VIP Party: Unique Home Items, Delicious Food and More!

Gourmet Food and Wine Expo 2014: This Week!

Can you believe that the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo is just days away?  This is a favourite event of DelectablyChic! and many favourites look like they’ll be back, including Hank Daddy’s BBQ (known for their pulled pork parfait – something we noted back in a 2011 post for this event), Brix chocolate (they were […]
