URBAN GALLERY & URBAN SOURCE CATERING hosted their monthly Urban Foodie event last night, inviting local food artisans Whisky & Spice, Haute-Goat and No. 7 Hot Sauce to sample their delicious wares, paired with Rockway wines courtesy of TreAmici (see weblinks at end of story).
Carlos & Sandra from No.7 Hot Sauce (above) showcased their hot’n’spicy sauces based on their family’s traditional recipes in varying levels of “heat”.Urban Source Catering’s Jean-Marc enjoyed sampling each flavour…it was love at first taste!
Debbie Nightingale (above right) brought her complete range of Haute-Goat products including goats’ milk chocolate truffles, caramel sauce and the new maple or chocolate goats’ milk fudge (OMG, it is a “party in your mouth”, trust me!). Haute-Goat also has a luxurious line of body creams, soaps and lip balm that not only feels great, it smells good enough to eat!
Dan Gordon from Whisky & Spice was on hand to spread the word about his premium, handcrafted mustards that feature whisky/honey, Porter beer and Riesling/apple flavours and there were lots of happy taste-testers who took home jars for themselves and gifts. Yummmm.
The refreshing wines offered throughout the event were courtesy of Tre Amici and account manager Andrew Paradis (below) was on hand to personally pour our drinkies. Obviously one of the more popular people last night, Andrew found himself surrounded by some of the lovely ladies in attendance! A tough job but someone has to pour the wine, eh, Andrew?
Artist J. David Murphy whose work is on display at the gallery until the end of this month was also in attendance and the guests enjoyed chatting with him about his stunning northern Ontario landscapes. Here’s David (below, left) chatting with gallery owner Calvin Hambrook (below, right) and other guests.
Urban Source Catering‘s kitchen magician, Chef Lyndon, served up some pretty amazing hors d’oeuvres throughout the event….and as the evening wound-down he finally emerged from the kitchen to say hello to all the guests (below)
This month’s Urban Foodie event was a big success with guests and vendors enjoying the art, the food, the wine and the camaraderie while a monsoon-like rainstorm pelted down outside. Big thank-you to Calvin, Wayne, Jean-Marc, gallery curator Allen, coordinator Kaspara and the cheery service staff for their warm hospitality. Bravo, Urban!
