Foodie Finds at Urban Craft

One of the things that gets me super duper about Ottawa is all of the fantastic small-batch food producers that we have in town. From ice cream to jams to bread name it...someone is probably making it in small, artisanal batches in Ottawa. So when we went about setting up Urban Craft, we knew we wanted a strong food component included in the show. Luckily for us we had some incredible food makers apply!

Urban Baking Co. injects a bit of French whimsy into the Urban Craft scene with her incredible macarons. Having bought a pack of her macarons at last month's Urban Craft, I can attest that her macarons are darn good.

Koko Chocolates will be on hand with their amazingly gorgeous and innovative truffles, barks and more. You guys seriously have to try their chocolately goodness--I seriously love every flavor I've ever had from Koko and I'm sure you will too! The owner, Jen, is really fantastic as well. A sweet lady creating sweet chocolates? Almost sounds too good to be true--but it's true!

As we mentioned in our October sneak peek, the lovely Claire of Strawberry Blond Cafe will be bringing the vegan baked goods this month. If you are looking for a treat to satisfy your sweet tooth this Saturday, see if you can get your hands on one of her 'cheesecake' pops! They are pretty delish!

Last but not least Rochef Chocolatier will be joining us with his incredible single origin chocolates, truffles and other gourmet goodies. Having had a chance to try Roch's chocolate last month, I can attest that you are going to enjoy the flavors and purity of his chocolate. The man obviously knows what he is doing, and my tummy thanks him for that!

So needless to say--it's great to come to Urban Craft hungry! Not only will we have all these fantastic vendors at the show to tame your sweet tooth, but the cafe at The GCTC, Viva Loca will also have some savory delights and coffee for you to much on as well. I personally plan to do a tour-de-food at the show and pick up goodies from each vendor! Yum! Is it Saturday yet!?
