TIFF13 – Ritz Carlton – TOCA Warms Up With A Star From Rome

IMG_9488 My friend Leonardo Temperini is the Executive Director at the Aldrovandi Villa Borghese in Rome, and it is a great spot in the eternal city.  So what a delightful surprise to find from the sterling team of the Ritz Carlton Toronto while trying to work my way through a monstrously delicious club sandwich that 2 Michelin Stars chef Oliver Glowig will be visiting their TOCA restaurant next week.

Chef Oliver Glowig, his German origin has granted him a talent for precision, dedication and accuracy and all his time spent in Italy’s Campania in addition to being married to a Nepalese wife has given him experience and passion rarely anyone who is not an Italian possesses. Rome is one of the most fascinating and beautiful cities in the world and I love it, yet I have never had the opportunity to dine at Oliver Glowig.  That is about to change.  As the days quickly race away till September 5 when the world descends upon Toronto for one of the greatest film festival in the world, The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), it is great to be able to get into the swing of things with the visit of chef Oliver Glowig.
