About Edible Toronto
EAT. DRINK. READ. THINK.
edible Toronto is a small team with big ideas. We joined the edible network in 2014 with the launch of edible Ottawa, highlighting eastern Ontario's vibrant local food scene with compelling stories, beautiful photography and go-to recipes. In December of 2016, we had the opportunity to take on edible Toronto, and we jumped at the chance to bring our sense of style to the well-respected magazine.
With an abundance of stories to tell, our editor, Tara Simpson is busy honing our content in print and online, while publisher, chef and food editor, Justin Faubert creates seasonal recipes to add to your collection. Publisher Laurie Kizik, is curating our advertising partners to develop beautiful and relevant ads, making edible Toronto a magazine you read cover to cover.
Please feel free to connect with us at any time. We look forward to hearing from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Edible Toronto celebrates local food culture season by season, community by community. We focus on the people – the farmers who live and work the land, and the chefs, vintners and food artisans showcase our local offerings. We give voice to local food inspirations, trends, controversies, and challenges. We offer rare access to the most influential and interested food and drink enthusiasts, all the while creating an authentic, vivid, enticing and enriching culinary experience.
Our region is Southern Ontario's Greater Golden Horseshoe, an area composed of over one hundred municipalities and populated by eight million, or two-thirds, of Ontario’s residents. The Golden Horseshoe stretches along Lake Ontario – from beyond Cobourg in the east to Niagara-on-the-Lake in the southwest; and inland, west to Brantford, northwest to Wellington County, north to Penetanguishene, and northeast to the Kawarthas. The Greater Golden Horseshoe and, by extension, Edible Toronto magazine, embraces the Greenbelt and the towns, townships and cities within these boundaries.
And it is within these boundaries that we discover and savour Ontario’s bounty: from small, family-run farms that have been around for generations to new hydroponic greenhouse operations; from dozens of vineyards and wineries in Niagara to apple orchards and pumpkin farms in Halton; from ostrich and elk farms in Rockwood to sheep and goat farms in Durham and the Kawartha Region; from artisan cheesemakers to chocolatiers and coffee roasteries that use only fairly traded products.
Our mission is to be the community resource that connects the dots of seasonal, locally grown foods. A place to get to know our local farmers and artisans, and learning more about what our region has to offer in the way of great dining, delicious day trips, vintners, distillers, brewers, food events and festivals. We want to tell the stories behind food and drink that so many of us take for granted. Every two months we serve up profiles, features, and recipes that illuminate the season and people who work so hard to bring this bounty to our tables. Throughout the magazine we include the artistry of local food through stunning photography and illustrations. Edible Toronto is a feast for the eyes, the intellect and the palate.
Edible Toronto is a free publication distributed at quality grocery stores, specialty food stores, farmers’markets, and retail venues that share our values.
