The Fall Flavours Festival team were in downtown Toronto today to celebrate the festival’s 10th anniversary and announce the 2017 Signature Event and celebrity chef lineup. On hand were celebrity chefs Chuck Hughes, Corbin and David Rocco to help celebrate this announcement.
Visitors were treated to delicious Island flavours including PEI Mussels, Oysters, Beef-Sliders, Island potatoes and a live performance by Prince Edward Island fiddler, Richard Wood.
New to the all-star lineup this year are celebrity chefs David Rocco and Danny Smiles who are joined by fan favourites Chuck Hughes, Lynn Crawford, Mark McEwan, Vikram Vij, Corbin Tomaszeski and PEI’s own Michael Smith. Proudly presented by Sobey’s and hosted by Canada’s Food Island, Fall Flavours takes place at locations across Prince Edward Island from September 1st – October 1st, 2017.
“With these incredible celebrity chefs and our talented local chefs, guests can enjoy the authentic tastes of Prince Edward Island in some of the most engaging ways at locations you can only imagine,” says John Rowe, Chair of Food Island Partnership, the organizing group for Fall Flavours. “These events on Canada’s Food Island are truly like no other. I encourage people to get their tickets early, as many events sell-out quickly.”

- Toe Taps & Taters (Sept. 8, Chef Chuck Hughes)
- Oysters on the Pier (Sept. 9, Chef Michael Smith)
