Highview Food & Drink Awarded Best Veal Sandwich

sammie-logoThe verdict is in! After a tireless search extending to every corner of the province, Veal Farmers of Ontario (VFO) is proud to crown Southhampton restaurant Highview Food & Drink as the winner of Ontario’s Best Veal Sandwich 2016.
The winning entry was chosen from among three finalists – Cucino Mauro (Toronto), Highview Food & Drink (Southhampton), and Panini Italian Sandwiches (Woodbridge) – who prepared their culinary contenders under the glare of the Chef Stage lights at the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo Novemeber 19th in Toronto. With their veal-powered victory, Highview Food & Drink wins the right to claim their sandwich as Ontario’s Best.

“We are so excited to be chosen,” said Highview Chef Noelle Barone. “We’ve been open only four months and since we became a finalist we’ve been selling out of our Ontario veal sandwiches.”

Celebrity judges John Catucci, host of You Gotta Eat Here! on Food Network Canada, and cookbook author and radio/TV personality Chef Jo Lusted, along with consumer Keith Strickland, selected the winning sandwich.
