Two weeks ago, I was invited among with 29 other exclusive attendees to attend this special meet and greet event with Canadian Celebrity Chef, Mark McEwan. Mark not only a great and well-known chef but also an excellent entrepreneur who opens a number of great restaurants such as North 44, Bymark, just to name a few. On top of that, Mark also opens his own grocery store called McEwan Foods.
On this evening, the lucky 30 attendees arrived at McEwan Food grocery stores. We saw a number of food stations being setup. From fresh oysters seafood station to beer and wine station and other interesting dessert and bakery.
I got a chance to chat with Mark in a number of occasions during the entire event. I told him that one of my bucket list items was for me to dip my feet wet at the ocean shore, pick up the biggest oyster and shuck it on the spot and eat it. Mark told me the best spot would be during the fall season at Prince Edward Island (PEI) when it’s oyster season and I can even try the blue fin tuna as well.
The entire evening was amazing, we got to try so many delicious food items that were signature items at various McEwan restaurants. I had a blast. It was also great to meet other food bloggers in person as we often chatted on various social media channels.
