Hamilton’s city council is taking notice of the rising culinary scene in Hamilton, and I couldn’t be happier about it! They have launched the brand-spanking-new concept of #NOSHHamOnt – a week celebrating everything #HamOnt culinary.
I love this concept and I’m getting involved in any way that I can! I’ll be running a special food event in collaboration with Hamilton’s Hoppily Ever After blog – more details on that coming soon!
Read the official media release about NOSH Week from the City of Hamilton below.
“Today, the City of Hamilton officially introduces NOSH to the community – the first ever week-long celebration of Hamilton’s booming culinary scene. NOSH will take place during National Small Business Week (October 17-23, 2016), and was formally supported by Council several weeks ago, led by Councillor Sam Merulla, Ward 4.
“Hamilton’s emergence on a national scale is in part attributable to the rising food scene we have in the city,” said Councillor Merulla, NOSH Honourary Chair. “From the restauranteurs, to the chefs, to the diners who are flocking to the various restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries, these great efforts are attracting more positive attention for Hamilton on a national scale, and I believed it was certainly time for the entire city to celebrate and support their efforts.”
NOSH (North Hamilton – including lower city, Outlying communities – former municipal entities, South Hamilton – including Binbrook, Glanbrook, and Mount Hope) is intended to showcase Hamilton’s culinary scene from Winona to Waterdown and is anticipated to have a selection of paid and free events for the community and visitors in which to participate.
“What we are asking now is the culinary community in Hamilton to go to the NOSH website and submit their event for the week. It could be as simple as a signature dish, to something as extravagant as a major food tour; but, ultimately we want culinary participation and events showcasing the breadth of our city,” said Merulla.
