Steve travels to the 9th annual Terroir Symposium in Toronto, where a (mostly) Canadian group of chefs, business leaders, writers and food & beverage professionals talk about the state of the industry. Filled with motivational speeches, informational seminars, cooking demos and wine classes, the day-long event is typically sold out. Steve also had some time to explore a few of the newer restaurant gems in Toronto.
