The 2013 Edition of Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert will be held next weekend in Montreal (March 15-17), then March 23-24 in Quebec City. The event has become an annual meeting for foodies seeking to find out about trendy health food stars before the rest of us.
Last year, I wrote about this extraordinary boxful of mushrooms I received from Monsieur Basilic. This year, the Expo sent me Inari organic coconut flour and Pixo Pearls of cider vinegar, a very exciting Quebec-made product. Of course, with the ongoing gluten-free craze, all coconut products have become de rigueur when baking, while the vinegar pearls on gourmet canapés will def seduce your pickiest guest.
I won’t be able to visit the Expo in 2013 since I’m taking part in a roundtable discussion on Québec cookbooks at the Saint-Hyacinthe Book Show on the same weekend. But, if I were you, I would skedaddle to Montreal’s Palais des Congrès and find out what health foods will be trending ahead of everybody. It’s okay, I like to show off too.
