Virtual holiday get together ideas for foodies

A Different Christmas This Year

Can you believe it’s already December? 2020 has simultaneously been the longest and shortest year - and we’re not quite home free yet. This year, the holidays will be a little different than what we’re used to, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing! We’ve rounded up a few ways you can still have a fun, tastebud-satisfying holiday season with those you love most while socially distancing! And you get to support local Toronto businesses to boot!

Toronto Food Tours, At Home!

Known for their food tours, Culinary Adventure Co. has had to pivot this year, and what a job they’ve done! You can now get a food tour sent directly to your home and get a well curated taste of the many wonderful neighborhoods in our city. I’m partial to the fritters in the Riverside box, but they offer bites from Little India, Chinatown, St. Lawrence Market, and the Distillery District. Just in time for the holidays, you can have your very own Christmas Market at home.

Culinary Adventure Co. also offers virtual trivia nights, ZOOM cooking classes, and plenty more - the best part being that once you pick your adventure, they take care of the rest! They deliver the food and drinks, host the events, and you just get to enjoy, while suporting local!

Virtual Beer Tastings & Happy Hours

Miss going to breweries and sampling all the different goodies? Me too. Luckily, Canadian Craft Tours is here to help! With a choice of wine, beer, and non-alcoholic options from local spots, anyone missing tasting flights can have their craving satisfied. You can have the drinks (and cheese!) delivered right to your door, or opt to pick up the brews yourself and simply log in for an informative and fun happy hour!

Rolling with the Homies - in a Sushi Class!

With gatherings limited this year, it might not make sense to roast up a whole turkey or have a full feast of seven fish, which means your holiday dinner can be whatever you want it to be! Even sushi! Log on with the sushi master, Toronto’s very own Chef Sang Kim to learn how to make your own maki.

Are You The Next Great Canadian Baker?

Got dinner figured out but never been comfortable baking? Why not pick up a new skill during a virtual dessert making class with North York’s Le Dolci. With the option to have all the necessary ingredients delivered, even a complete novice can make beautiful holiday cookies. Such a fun way to ensure your sweet tooth is satisfied all season long!

More of an expert? Why not try the macaron making class and then gift your loved ones delicious French sweets! Talk about two birds with one stone!

Socially Distanced Movie Night

Less of a foodie crowd? Why not pop some popcorn and virtually catch a flick with your nearest and dearest? Watch Party synchronizes movies, TV shows, even hilarious YouTube videos so no one lags behind, and you can talk over chat or video chat through the app.
