"Time is free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it you can never get it back." ~ Harvey Mackay

2013 marks 20 years of designing and conducting intimate Food Tours, LitWalks and GhostWalks for A Taste of the World in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Over the years, I have felt honoured to be leading a food tour whenever a loyal patron/guest returns, and book themselves and a loved one to join one of our popular holiday food tours (i.e. Kensington Festive Food Roots or Chinese Lunar New Year tour/banquets). The gift of your precious time to others is a gift to yourself. Time well spent together on a food tour is one of the most rewarding and cherished in life. From time to time, over the 20 years, I get patrons dropping a line or two via a hand written 'Thank You' note, an email, a Facebook update or even a Twitter 'shout out' - and often it's about their cherished memories of the fantastic foodie moments shared with their loved ones and yours truly.
Kensington Festive Food Roots tours (Sunday December 8th, 15th @ 10am-1:30pm; Saturday December 21st 9:30am-1:00pm). Toronto, lives up to its namesake, The Meeting Place, as we celebrate the festivities and foods behind Diwali, Chanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas and Kwanzaa. Each tour will be kept to an intimate size comprising of 11 lucky guests, so book your spots now to avoid being disappointed! You can still book by phone at (416) 923-6813 or via email info@TorontoWalksBikes.com . These food tours will be extra special as the lucky foodies will be treated to artisan chocolates, personally made by my alter ego @SChocolateMagic, as I complete the Chocolate Confections course while working my way through George Brown College's Professional Chocolatier Certificate programme. I hope you will be able to set aside some time to join me in lighting up and celebrating life as 2013 wraps up.
