"This was a wonderful event. I am not typically into spicy foods, but I was surprisingly shocked at how much I enjoyed the food. It was a beautiful day, and it was a fantastic first-time experience at the Stackt market."
It was an amazing event. I purchased tickets for myself and others who came from out of town, as something to do together. It was a wonderful experience, learning about the foods and the wine, and being able to sample them all.
It was great getting to try different wine and food that I wouldn't usually try and it was inclusive.
LOVED this event and am so looking forward to next year!
We need more events like this in Canada. More things like this that bring people together is what this Country is about. Fantastic job and I cannot wait until next year. I know it will be even bigger and better!!!!
WHY THIS MATTERS
WHY THIS MATTERS
The face of our community is changing, has changed, and gives cause to celebrate our country's diversity, including acknowledging our food culture and expanding the purview. Pairing ethnic food with wine from both the old and new world is another expression of our diversity. It allows us to bring different cultures together with the opportunity for discovery, including understanding the historical significance of food culture in other countries.
The Spice Food & Wine series gives everyone a chance to build their own narrative around wine and, more specifically, wine and their national dishes regardless of background and race. We dispel the myth that wine cannot be paired with many ethnic foods due to food preparation and cooking methodology. Moreover, we aim to spur conversation on why the myths exist in the first place, which leads to a broader discussion on world history that was aimed at creating a divide.

The team behind the Spiced Food & Wine Series are individuals from the African-Caribbean Diaspora. Their passion is wine, and their heart is in spreading that love of wine to their respective communities.
What is wine if not something to be shared with a community over food, merriment, and togetherness?
This is done in support of cognitive diversity in wine.
