In just two weeks, Toronto’s top culinary talents will head to Fort York for Taste of Toronto, the local offshoot of the international Taste Festivals empire. (Toronto Life is a local media partner.) The fair runs from July 24 to 27, and the lineup of food, which we previewed, looks enticing. Before the festivities get underway, though, the organizers have a bunch of stuff to give away. There are 13 prizes to be won, including general-entry tickets, VIP passes and—for one extremely lucky Dish reader—a fancy grand-prize package, which includes an overnight stay at the luxurious Shangri-La hotel, a gourmet breakfast for two at fine-dining restaurant Bosk and a pair of VIP passes to one of six Taste of Toronto sessions, where the winner (and a friend) will be able to sip sparkling beverages behind velvet ropes (well, we’re not 100-per-cent sure about the ropes) instead of milling about with the plebes. Entering is easy: just fill out the form below anytime between now (that is, Wednesday, July 9) and next Tuesday, July 15 at 5 p.m. For those who aren’t lucky enough to win a freebie, tickets can be purchased here.
