Nom nom nom. My favourite community festival

160626 KWMF East Indian Pappads Cook Stall

For almost half a century, we've celebrated the rich and diverse tapestry of people and cultures who've made my area their home at the K-W Multicultural Festival. I try to get out to it--there are lots of performances by dance troupes and singers, arts and craft stalls, and (of course) cook stalls that ring the green at Kitchener's Victoria Park.

Unlike food truck events, concerts or rib fests, the food (generally) isn't made by professional chefs.  These are home cooks, preparing foods you'd probably find if they invited you over for supper.

I always feel spoilt for choice--so many delicious morsels!  Which to take home with me for my supper?  In general, I try to have something I normally don't have or haven't had in a while.  Between my friend and I, we brought back containers with aromas from Africa, The Phillippines, and Latin America.

I went, camera in hand, and snapped the afternoon away.  Rye and Ginger's Facebook Page has a good sampling of what the weekend had to offer.

I'm a quill for hire!
