Award-winning Canadian chef, Cory Vitiello, who has owned and operated some of Toronto's best restaurants including The Harbord Room, Thr & Co. and newly opened FLOCK, has teamed up with Triscuit to create simple and delicious spring snack recipes. He has thrown support behind Triscuit maker fund campaign (through Indiegogo) to flash fund 55 artisanal food makers—from small farms to food trucks to microbrewers—across Canada and the U.S. with $250,000.00. Giada De Laurentiis – TV personality, celebrity chef and a champion of real food – also partnered with Triscuit to announce the news.
"Like Triscuit, I have great admiration for today's community of food makers, because I know the kind of work that goes into taking a simple idea and building something impactful," said Giada. "I'm thrilled to be working with the brand to elevate and encourage new small businesses at various points on their journey from concept to success."
Also partnering with Triscuit, Cory Vitiello says "I believe inspired creativity has a simple idea at heart, like Triscuit, so I'm working with the brand to show support for food makers and celebrate simple ingredients that make delicious creations."
