THE STOP'S NIGHT MARKET
Back in February, friends of mine asked if I wanted to join their team to design, and potentially build, a food cart for The Stop's Annual Night Market. Any opportunity to combine food and architecture for a good cause, and I'm there, no questions asked. So we hashed out our design, submitted it to the competition, and were one of 35 teams selected to build our cart. Woohoo!
Its been a hectic few months, filled with power tools, long days and several trips to the hardware store (process shots over here), but here we are, a finished cart and an incredibly successful event, featuring roughly 60 local chefs, bite size eats, drinks and 35 one-of-a-kind food carts.
Some food highlights: the Indonesian rice bowl from Babi&Co; killer spicy deep fried wings from Bar Fancy; delicious chili chicken papri chaat from Dundas Park Kitchen; beet & rice stuffed grape leaves from Woodlot (they even sold out!); and these perfect little rhubarb dessert cups from Mad Maple. We ate, we drank, we scoped out the cart competition and overall, had a really amazing night.
