We went to visit as many artisans as we could, in various orders depending if there was already a crowd there. So in no particular order, I'm going to take you through them:
You're probably not very surprised at what I'm starting with, but here we are looking at gelato. James Coleridge from Bella Gelateria in Vancouver, BC studied in Italy at the Carpigiani Gelato University. There's a gelato university!!!
The honey rhubarb cheesecake mousse was airy and light, I should have went for seconds.
To the artisans that we missed, we are terrible sorry! There was so much to see and taste that we ran out of time and didn't get a chance to meet everyone. To those we did meet, thank you for telling us your story and sharing your passion. Thank you to Kali Hopkins-Allen from Citizen Optimum for inviting us and for the lovely gift bag featuring samples from the artisans - we can't wait to start baking! Thanks to the helpful staff and everyone who helped make the event such a success. And of course, to ACE Bakery for being such gracious hosts.
