There are hundreds of event venues in and around Toronto and the GTA. When faced with so many options, how do you choose the right space for your event? The process can be a bit intimidating, so to help you in your search, our team at Daniel et Daniel has put together the following list to guide you in your decision.

Spring is here and for us, it’s the perfect time to launch our new website.
Our presence is in the heart of downtown Toronto and extends beyond the GTA.
For over thirty years, Daniel et Daniel has been part of Toronto’s Cabbagetown, and we have watched the area transition into a diverse and lively neighbourhood. Our company started with a kitchen attached to a small storefront, and we have developed into a four building facility with multiple kitchens, office space, and have over a hundred employees.
Our Culinary team has really outdone themselves with this show stopper. At the recent unveiling of our new Spring and Summer menu items, our Chinese Tea Poached Salmon was one of our sales team’s favourite new dishes.
It’s served cold on a bed of refreshing glass noodles and features the fresh flavours of edamame, ginger and tamarind. In order to achieve a layered flavour profile, we used Lapsang Souchong tea as our poaching liquid. Lapsang Souchong derives it’s sultry flavour from the pinewood on which it is smoke-dried and if Wikipedia is to be believed, it was one of Winston Churchill’s favourite beverages. We found that the tea’s classic, smoky aroma infuses perfectly with the tamarind glaze.

The Design Exchange has been ground zero for countless spectacular events over the years. Bursting forth from the former home of the Toronto Stock Exchange, it has been a significant host to Toronto’s event scene for two decades, setting the scene for myriad weddings, corporate events and fundraising galas. The interior of the former Stock Exchange is beautifully dramatic in its own right, but for a yearly recurring event we knew it was essential to provide an element of surprise.

Despite the arctic freeze hovering over Toronto this winter, our Executive Chef Karen O’Connor along with Executive Pastry Chef Bonnie Kravitz and our amazing culinary team have not been hibernating! The kitchen has been humming with the ideas brought forward from our eager Menu Committee, consisting of sales and culinary staff, all dedicated to the creation of Scrumptious! Inspiration came from the colour and anticipation of spring and summer produce, and fresh ideas were molded into the new event catering menu, lovingly perfected in our kitchens.
