About the Toronto Garlic Festival:

The Second Annual Toronto Garlic Festival happens October 13 and 14 at Evergreen Brick Works in the Don Valley. Meet garlic farmers from across Ontario, and taste several cuisines and styles of cooking. Learn about kitchen science and the medicinal properties of garlic. Watch cooking demonstrations, kids theatre, face painting, story-telling, and take home your winter supply of cooking garlic. Take the free festival shuttle bus leaving every 10 minutes from the parkette a half block north of Broadview subway station.

Taste Canada in Season: Pizoccheri Pasta with Garlic Scape Pesto


Watch an inspiring cooking demo from a family-friendly recipe using fresh Ontario garlic. As a bonus, you’ll get helpful tips from executive chef Anne Sorrention how to prepare healthy foods for your family.

Kids love making this recipe as much as they like to eat it.

Executive Chef Anne Sorrenti shows kids (and parents) how to easily make your own pasta. Anne is currently the executive chef at Morgans on the Danforth and volunteers at the Green Barn Farmer's Market - Wychwood Barns as the market chef to support local farmers. She taught children aged 6-9 cooking for five years and was VP on the board of Green Thumbs Growing Kids: a community gardening agency bringing the issue of local food and healthy eating to city neighbourhoods through community gardens in local schools.

Garlic scapes taste like garlic! The scapes come from the top part of the garlic plant and are cut from the plant so it can develop a larger garlic bulb. Scapes have a mild garlic flavour and are available in many farmers’ markets from the end of June to mid-July.
