A Taste of the Caribbean

The Rum Edition

A Taste of the Caribbean (TOTC) is Quebec’s premier Caribbean cultural event.
From its beginnings in 1999, TOTC’s mission has been to promote the colorful diversity of Caribbean culture in Montreal. The event features an array of food, beverages, music and arts representing some of the 25 nation islands in the Caribbean including Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Vincent, Grenada and many others!

TOTC allows visitors to taste their way through the islands by way of local restaurants,
international guest chefs, cooking and mixology demonstrations and spectacular musical performances from homegrown talent to internationally known, Grammy-Award winning performers.

The Rum Edition

This year, TOTC is all about rum. Though rum is produced worldwide, the majority comes from the Caribbean and Latin America. And of course, if you ask anyone from the islands they’ll tell you that the best rum is Caribbean rum! With the Rum Edition you’ll introduce your palate to this spirit in a variety of ways: The Rum Zone where you’ll not only sample a variety of rums but you’ll also learn more about the spirit; the St-James Tiki Bar offering free, daily mixology demonstrations; Cooking with Rum demonstration with Chef Lemaire from Miami; and Rum Masterclasses featuring TOTC spokesperson and Rum Ambassador Gabrielle Panaccio.
