The next annual Taste of the Nation Montreal is coming up next Wednesday. It always gets tons of Montreal press, as people from the Montreal media are the celebrity sous-chefs for the restaurants participating. Just for the food, is it worth it to pay $175(which includes the private cocktail reception)? Usually each year several top Montreal restaurants participate. The foods put out by the restaurants for the Taste of the Nation Montreal event, are they putting out their "A" material, or is more like their "B" or "C" stuff. I've never attended as it's very expensive.
