The First Tour de Fork – Oh, yes, I’ll be back!



Hi Friends & Neighbors –

You know loves our food events and last week we were very excited about the premiere Tour de Fork, happening at Victoria Gardens.  If you were following IEShineOn on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you would have seen some snapshots of our culinary adventure.  We thought we should recap some of our favorite dishes from that night.

There were some grumbles about the $50 entry fee for the event.  However, after attending the event I can fully vouch that it was absolutely worth the $50.  You were wined and dined for 3 hours and you could eat and drink as much as you wanted.  There was a 5 drink limit originally advertised but none of the vendors followed it – good for us!  Plus, there was a variety of restaurants there serving their signature dishes and fan favorites.  Trust me, I heard more than once from on-lookers passing by our platefuls of food asking, “WOW!  Where can I buy tickets for this event?”

For a full list of participating restaurants check out our previous blog post.  And when this event is back next year do not hesitate to get your tickets!

Scroll through our favorite dishes below for a glimpse at the reason why I’ll be doing overtime at the gym this week. ;)

Till next time…Enjoy!

The anticipation for Slaters 50/50 was palpable. Folks started lining up early.

Are you serious? Oysters?! Yes, please!

And some jazz to serenade us into food coma...
