We have previously attended the Ottawa Wine and Food Show (not this year though) and have enjoyed it. The Kanata event was different in that you paid one price for your ticket, then had access to all the food, wine and spirits inside (similar to Bon Appetit). It was held at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Kanata, on the second floor.
What I enjoyed about it was that it was not as crowded as the larger event, and getting to sample delicious foods (one, twice or thrice!). I also liked that part of the proceeds went to charity, there was free parking available and a free coat check.
Favourites included: delicious chicken tikka from Haveli's, delicious pulled pork with rice from Scrumptious Creative Catering, and a delicate seared tuna from the Crazy Horse Stonegrill Steakhouse and Saloon.
