Vegetarian Food Festival: Part 1

Pistachio Baklawa from Baklawa Queen: Just as good as the honey/butter version. Look at those laters! $2.50  
Baked good from Bunner's Bake Shop
Samples from Nong Shim: They have some of the best instant noodles (I find their noodle texture is just right). We were looking forward to buying a box of 20 packages, usually $10, but they weren't on offer this year. Huge disappointment, as they were only selling cup noodles...which we're not fans of. 
Chickpea Miklk: Tried this out, not a fan. Sip and spit, tasted like "paint thinner" as Rich put it. 
Sunflower Kitchen: They offer a variety of dips in a wide range of flavours
I tried the sunflower pesto which I really enjoyed. So much so I wanted to buy a couple containers (a mix of hummus and pesto), but was ignored and passed over for a good 7 minutes. With the people behind me getting served and others pushing their way for a sample, I left empty handed eyes rolling. You lost my business.
It was busy but not overwhelmingly so
Kind: I love their nut bars (hello, almond coconut!), so it was no surprised that their pressed fruit and chia bars were a huge hit as well. The were a pleasant mix of dried fruit snack with little bits of chia seeds. So yummy.
Yves Veggie Cuisine: Rich gets their products regularly, as they have a good selection of meat alternatives. 
Yves veggie sausages- pretty good for a non-meat product! I had mine with a dab of sriracha.
Genuine Health: Fermented Vegan Protein bars, sampled both coconut lemon and maple walnut and as someone who doesn't eat bars like these ever, the maple one could have passed as a less sweet version of fudge.. I liked it and so did Rich!

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
