A New NEWH Party

The Toronto chapter of the Hospitality Industry Network (NEWH) threw an “After Hours at Cheese Boutique!” party. It proved to be an evening that sated the most demanding foodie. Inside the mecca to fine-food shopping were stations offering Swiss raclette, burrata, smoked salmon, gelato and candy, cheese and charcuterie, oysters, Goose Island beer, Adamo Estates wine and more.
