Classic French Toast and Coffee Competition

10 Nov

Long weekend at last. This weekend allowed me to catch up on tasks I had set aside. Like a sloth, slow but steady, I soon gained momentum. First off the list was an event I visited during October. Told you I am slow. This event was in the first few years but brimming with optimism. Apparently each year baristas locally and internationally enter a latte art contest to win the coveted championship title. The event was held at VPL and drew in crowds, all silently waiting in eager anticipation of what the baristas will create next. Hot steam and whisping sounds of bubbling milk filled the air as baristas busily created their masterpiece. Next came cheering and camera flickering as each little creation of latte art made its entrance into the competition world and were warmly welcomed by spectators. Amongst the event were little stations set up to catter to the younger crowd. Little kiddies eagerly sat on chairs and happily painted away at their cups compliments of Blenz Coffee. There were even stations for the tea lovers. Here are some highlights of the competition:

After a day of hoping around in the cold, moist air nothing tastes as welcoming than a bite out of a steaming warm french toast; add some maple syrup and berries and that definitely hit the spot.
