Hi, I’m Ariette!
Welcome to Toast & Taste, a food & hospitality website by yours truly. By day, I am a food enthusiast and budding lifestyle blogger from Toronto, Canada. By day, I work as an Ontario Child & Youth Practitioner, Copywriter, and Event Coordinator. Most importantly, I’m a child of God!
The heart and soul of Toast & Taste as a blog and lifestyle brand is to highlight my passion for food and hospitality. For those who know me in real life, they know me for my love for food and people – I like to try recipes out and share dishes with family, have friends over for dinner, check out new restaurants with friends, and believe that good food and good company is one of the best and simple combinations in life. Also, as an event planner, I’ve gotten to be a little bit of a foodie — because how else can I recommend great catering vendors to the wonderful clients that I work with if I don’t try great food?
My inclination to start this blog stems from the desire to do and share what I love (making food, eating food, home entertaining, event planning, extending hospitality) on a social platform and have a creative outlet to document my experience doing events and my favourite recipes. In terms of cooking, I’m certainly no professional chef; just a hobby cook/baker. But since sharing is caring, I will.
I will be writing about food & hospitality mainly – think recipes, DIY event ideas, home entertaining ideas, event planning advice, but also sharing about the great places to eat in Toronto and around different cities around the world since I like to travel. My blog will bring attention to my favoured recipes, ideal for family dinners or potlucks with friends, event and home entertaining ideas, kitchen tech, food lovers gift guides, and reviews. That’s what I bring to the table (pun intended) – enjoy your stay.
Thanks for reading!
