When you want to find out where to enjoy a delicious dinner in South Beach or what it's like to travel through Tuscany to sample the best Italian wines, Dine Magazine is your go-to resource. The publication is known for its stunning photography and insightful profiles in the areas of food, wine and luxury travel.
Dine Magazine recently celebrated its tenth anniversary issue with a wonderful reception at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. Cheryl Hickey of ET Canada is featured on the cover. At the reception, editor-in-chief, Sara Waxman spoke eloquently about the hard work and perseverance it took to get the magazine off the ground and was grateful for the encouragement by her late husband in becoming a food writer.
And as befitting the theme of the evening, there were delicious dishes to taste (catered by The Four Seasons) accompanied by fabulous wines. We enjoyed: gnocchi pasta with bison short ribs ragout; sweet potato puree baby spinach and tonka bean jus; oven roasted Ontario beef sirloin with marjoram buttermilk zucchini and grilled asparagus; quinoa and black kale with Szechaun jus; an artisanal cheese board with quince jam, house made pickled vegetables, toasted sour dough bread, walnut raisin crisp and pate en croute, and pate de campagne charcuterie board.
Some of the noteworthy guests attending the event included Jeanne Beker, Liona Boyd, Robin Barker, Jaymz Bee, Jenninfer Holness, Sudz Sutherland, and Robert Deluce.
Congratulations Dine Magazine on the past 10 years!
