HFTM is a founding supporter of Anita Stewart's Food Day Canada, a grand celebration of Canadian food that will take place coast to coast on August 1st. This year a group of Canadian chefs, Christopher Jess, Brian Schmeler and our very own Simon Day will be heading to the famous James Beard House in New York City on May 21st to promote Canadian food and host a special dinner 'The Flavors of Canada'.
Each year the Ontario Hostelry Institute (OHI) recognizes very special and accomplished men and women to be named as Fellows of the Institute at their annual Awards dinner.
The School of Hospitality, Food, and Tourism Management held its annual Awards Ceremony to recognize over forty outstanding undergraduate and graduate students this year. The School also welcomed student guests, faculty, esteemed alumni, parents of award recipients, and awards donors.
