Distinguished Restaurants of North America conference

Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Last week Toronto played host to some of the continent's top chefs and restaurateurs at the Distinguished Restaurants of North America (DiRoNA) conference. A couple of culinary highlights from the conference were the CN Tower reception at Horizons, and the Grand Gala at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

The CN Tower event featured Canadian cuisine, and had the Hon Peter Fonseca, MPP, Minister of Labour, opening the conference.





The Grand Gala at the Fairmont Royal York was an elegant sit-down event featuring a Japanese dinner paired with fine Italian wine. The Kaiseki dinner was created by Iron Chef 2002, Kimio Nonaga, with the assistance of Chef Ryo Ozawa of EDO Toronto.
