Stopping for food and drink

Sounds silly, in a floor full of food and (some) drink, but I really wanted to sit down and review my photos, think, and figure out what my next steps were. So I went over to the little Centreplate Bistro, the cafe at the edge of the show. I had a delightful server, Vernice. So professional and excellent, I want to tell you to sit in her section if you can. This is Vernice:

Vernice, awesomeness.

I had the cheese plate and red wine. There was lots of cheese.

A pecorino, blue, brie-like, smoked gouda, and an orange washed rind similar to an Oka cheese. Plus grapes, crackers, honey, and a nice compote. Pretty good for $10!

It made for a good break from the show, and was the gap between me photographing and me buying 🙂

Here’s the menu.

Visual thinker, first got interested in digital imagery in the early days of Omni magazine, back when it used to review what had happened at SIGGraph. I worked in the 3D software field for 23 years. Lifelong enjoyment of gardening grew over time; I was a Master Gardener (briefly) and had a vegetable and herb allotment garden in Toronto to grow vegetables, as well as perennial gardens at home. Gardening and enjoying fresh produce also raised my interest in cooking with really good local food. As more restaurants in Toronto are offering local fare, I enjoy dining out and sampling the visions the different chefs have.
