Royal Winter Fair


05 Nov Royal Winter Fair

I’m off to the Royal Winter Fair for the next two days. Can’t guarantee I’ll see Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla but am bound to see sheep, chickens and a whole herd of cookbook authors.

Do cookbook authors come in herds? Or prides?

Regardless, I’m hobnobbing with some foodies and will report back. In the meantime, here’s a look at last year’s menagerie — of a farm animals, not cookbook authors.

See you next week.

    Hm. How about a ‘roulade’ of writers. Or a ‘jambalaya’ of journalists. Maybe an ‘Aioli’ of authors?

    Have fun at the fair.

    This is my favorite horse show of all times. I use to show there back in the late 70’s and early 80’s when I was training horses for Augusta A. Busch, Jr. (Old Gussie Busch) and we always had a wonderful time. He usually drove his 4 in hand, which was always was a crowd pleaser.

    Have fun and I hope you post some pictures.

      Love this bit of history. It’s am amazing show and I can’t believe this agricultural event happens in the heart of downtown Toronto.

    Yes, have fun. Don’t forget your camera. We want to see the authors and the animals in all their finery.

      I did bring my camera, but only a point-and-shoot. My DSLR is too heavy and needs a tripod in low light. Unfortunately, I was too busy to take photos of the authors. :-(

      More pics coming. No baby llamas this year, but some really cute alpacas and earless goats.
