On Friday, Luminato announced the full list of restaurants, vendors and food shops participating in its annual 1,000 Tastes of Toronto event, which moves back to the Distillery on June 9 and 10 after last year’s foray onto John Street. Notable among the list of attendees at the street food festival is Bent, the upcoming restaurant headed by Susur Lee’s sons Levi and Kai Bent-Lee (which is slated to open very soon). Other food programming at this year’s Luminato includes Rainer Prohaska’s Toronto Carretilla Initiative, a kind of participatory art installation that’s also a public feast, and a conversation between New Yorker writers Adam Gopnik and Calvin Trillin about Canadian cuisine, a subject both writers have experience waxing charmingly condescending about.
