IFFA and A Day for Chocolate

For many of the internet's food bloggers, today is a celebration of food in general. Today is the first annual Independent Food Festival and Awards, in which a jury of sorts makes up a food-related award and then awards. This means that I have a handful of mouthwatering tabs open right now, full of tempting foods. And some of those foods are obtainable in Canada.

The Domestic Goddess awards the World's Best Mustard award to The Mustard Maker in St. Lawrence Market. Vittles Vamp awards the Best Under-the-Radar Dessert Wine, Starting to Gain Popularity award to Brachetto d'Acqui, available at many of the better LCBOs in Toronto. A la Cuisine awards The Maple Syrup Confection Worth its Weight in Gold award to DC Duby Chocolatier in Vancouver for their Wild Squash Truffle.

But good as all of those sound, I have something even more exciting to look forward to tonight: my first cooking class, Introduction to Working with Chocolate at JS Bonbons!
