Give the gift of Winterlicious - culinary event tickets on sale this week
Winterlicious, Toronto's culinary celebration presented by American Express, will offer two programs, the Winterlicious Culinary Event Series and the Prix Fixe Promotion, from January 25 to February 7.

"Winterlicious continues to be one of Toronto's most popular culinary celebrations, generating significant economic activity for our restaurant industry," said Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the City's Economic Development Committee. "The event’s outstanding success is based on our strong partnerships with restaurants and corporate partners and the enthusiasm of the public and visitors to our city."

Toronto food lovers continue to embrace the Winterlicious and Summerlicious programs produced by the City of Toronto. In the years since the two programs' inception, participating restaurants have served 3.7 million meals during the promotion and have generated more than $166 million in economic activity for the local culinary industry.

2013 Culinary Event Series
The Winterlicious Culinary Event Series features 14 one-of-a-kind ticketed culinary experiences featuring diverse cuisine hosted by some of Toronto’s finest restaurants and venues. These gastronomic events draw inspiration globally - from Scotland's highlands to Paris's bistros to Japan's tea houses. Local fare, theatre and cocktails are also in the culinary event lineup this year.

Tickets for the culinary events make great holiday gifts and go on sale Thursday, December 13. For a complete list of culinary events and how to purchase tickets, visit
