Over 30 top local chefs gathered for another ultimate evening of fine food at one of Toronto’s top annual food events called What’s on the Table, this time at the new Daniels Spectrum venue. Just like their annual Night Market event, The Stop Community Food Centre’s fundraising event is very high in demand and always sells out quickly. Impressively delectable food and drink offerings at the 9th annual What’s on the Table 2013 were provided by the finest food purveyors such as Beast, Ruby Watchco, Momofuku, Salt Wine Bar, Woods, Vertical and so much more.

Here’s some of my favourite dishes from the night:

The event also featured great silent and live auction items including a week getaway at a resort at Turks and Caicos. Congrats to The Stop for raising $280,000 at this year’s What’s on the Table event in support of anti-hunger programs in West Toronto. The Stop’s Davenport kitchen provides a hot and healthy lunch for more than 1,000 community meals every week, 4 days a week, in an environment that’s warm, welcoming and respectful.

Stay tuned for details for The Stop CFC’s upcoming food events: What’s on the Table 2014 and Night Market 2014.
