“From caviar to cupcakes and everything in between, we’re going to have a ton of new and fun things to taste,” said Melanie Klie, manager of the Niagara Food & Wine Expo. “Not only can attendees at this year’s Expo try out what exhibitors from across Canada are cooking up, but with the Dairy Farmer’s of Canada’s All You Need Is Cheese Stage and the Niagara College Chef Stage, there’s ample opportunity to learn a little more about some of the hottest food trends.”

For its 5th anniversary, the Niagara Food & Wine Expo is excited to announce that John Catucci from the Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here” will be taking to the Chef Stage at 3:00 pm on Saturday, May 2nd to talk to fans and answer all their questions about Canada’s most delicious, mouth-watering, over-the-top comfort food.

Paired alongside the selections, you will be well-equipped with the best of Niagara Falls culinary cuisine selections from Niagara’s top restaurants. Time to sample, taste and experience the delicious varieties from their tables to yours!

“In addition to the wide selection of food options, this year’s Expo will also include many new wine, beer and spirit vendors, who will be bringing several new beverages to try out,” said Klie.
