On top of networking, attendees can watch Canada’s up-and-coming talent face-off for cash and prizes.
RC Show 2022 highlights
With so many different vendors, we had such a hard time picking our favorites. Here are a few of our favorites and why we believe they are the latest to innovate and inspire in the hospitality industry.
The Impossible Burger brand has been making its way around Canada. As much as we are fans of competitor Beyond Meat, we do have to say the Impossible burger is way more flavourful. By eating a plant-based burger means a lower environmental footprint, less land and water, and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Each burger has 19g of protein and 0 cholesterol . The nutrition value of this burger is unreal and tastes amazing. To learn more about Impossible, visit their website here.
Two Bears Coffee
Ethically sourced ingredients, plant-based and sustainably sourced, Two Bears Coffee brings lattes in a can. Their Frothed Chai Tea Oat Latte is too die for, and it’s added with nitrogen to give it that smooth texture. Two Bears Coffee can be found at a variety of retailers or you can purchase here
One of our favorite sections was the Food truck area. The Cuban Thing and Alijandros Kitchen were sampling some of their best sellers. Tik-Tok even had a booth giving out some tasty snacks to promote the platform. It was impossible to resist the yummy corn ribs.
The Boreal Botanical brand was a way to dive deep into the benefits of functional mushrooms to optimize mental and physical health The drink combines the benefits of Chaga, lion’s mane, and reishi to create a sugar-free, sweetener-free, and all brewed with ingredients inspired by and sourced from Canada’s pristine boreal forests. The lion’s mane was our personal favorite, tasted amazing, and provided great health benefits. To learn more about the brand, click here.
Just Egg is a plant-based brand where you can get the same texture from eggs but without cholesterol. Made from Mung Bean, each JUST EGG has about 5g of protein, 150mg of sodium, and low calories. The texture was just like a real egg, but we will say the flavor wasn’t the same as an egg. But I think it’s an excellent alternative for Vegans who are looking for a substitute.

Some of the features of the show include the Restaurant panels, premium tea brand Pluck, and a Premium meal kit demo from Chef-Drop on cooking Risotto, and of course, the Bar and Beverages section where we had the opportunity to try brands such as Fever-Tree, Sap Sucker, Remedy, Viveau and more.
