The (delicious) Taste of Preston Street

LTO's Genevieve, Jessey and Amy at Ottawa's Taste of Preston Street

Last weekend, the lovely folks over at Savvy Company invited Local Tourist Ottawa founders Amy and Jessey, as well as our pizza-loving contributor Geneviève, to attend La Vendemmia’s Taste of Preston Street Food and Wine Show. As I’m sure you can imagine, we were thrilled.

Celebrating the abundance of Preston Street’s Italian and international restaurants alongside some really nice wine, we’re not ashamed to say that between the three of us we sampled just about everything.

It was glorious.

Of course, there was wine...

and pizza....

...and so much more.

A plate of sweets from Pasticceria Gelateria Italiana & Simply Biscotti

The Prescott's famous meatballs (they're famous for a reason)

Delicious deliciousness from Stoneface Dolly's

Amazing clam chowder from Big Easy's Seafood and Steak House

Seriously creative treats from Reggina Pastry

More from Reggina Pastry

The greatest Italian pastry of all, again from Reggina Pastry

Local Tourist Geneviève, who headed straight for the pizza...

Butternut squash soup, clam chowder, escargot, biscotti, ravioli....

A huge thanks to the organizers of this event for including LTO, and for working so hard to put together such an incredible showcase.

It was wonderful to sample the huge diversity of food that Preston Street has to offer, as well as rub shoulders (and clink glasses) with other local bloggers and foodies.

Of course, we also got to meet Genevièveone of our very favourite Local Tourists, in person for the first time!
