Regular readers on my posts will know that I am a lover of well crafted ciders. I love making and drinking ciders (maybe a little too much! 😉 I also love seeing the cider industry gaining ground like it is doing in many parts of the world these days.
Specific to Canada, not only are Canadian grape wines gaining momentum each year but fruit wines and cider in particular is undergoing a revolution across the country.
To celebrate quality artisanal ciders, Chris Haworth who is executive chef of the prestigeous Spencer’s and a long time cider advocate will prepare a 6 course tasting menu specially designed around the very best Ontario Hard Ciders. Guests at the event will include other cider enthusiasts, members of the local media and regular guests of Spencer’s.
If you happen to be in the Toronto, Ontario area near the end of February, this even will be a “must” for any cider lover. It is sure to be an amazing evening. I know that not all of you will be able to attend of course but I still want to get the word out when great events like this spring up.
