2010 Savour food & wine Show

Last Thursday night I attended the 7th annual Savour food & wine Show at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront. This event makes the top of my list as the best of the year- trumping even Christmas and New Years, seriously!

This year's show was even more special to me as I was invited to sit on the Savour food & wine festival planning committee as the Media Relations Representative. Talk about a thrill. Working with Nova Scotia Tourism and Destination Halifax to bring in world-class food writers, being involved in the planning of new events such as Decadence; a feast of chocolate, wine and cheese, and having the inside track of exhibitor offerings for the Savour Show were just a few of the perks of being involved.

So without further ado, I present to you a few snapshots of some of the bites I got to experience at this year's Savour Show. Don't forget to get your tix to the 2011 Savour Show and follow SavourNS on Twitter for updates all year-long!

Thanks for coming by the DesBarres Manor Inn booth to taste Chef Shaun's Smoked Salmon Bread Pudding. Great photo! We enjoyed pairing it with the Blomidon Estate Reserve Chardonnay at the show. If your readers would like to make Chef Shaun's savoury bread pudding at home, they can get a copy of the recipe at the DesBarres Manor website:
