Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 28th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Karon Liu is the Toronto Star’s resident food writer and recipe tester, which means his job is to make sure a recipe is accurate before it gets published, whether it’s from a chef or a new cookbook. Before joining the Star, he was the staff food writer at The Grid and has contributed to publications like Sharp, Now Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Vice’s Munchies, and House & Home. His go-to cookbooks are The Joy of Cooking, Martha Stewart’s Every Day Food: Great Food Fast, and Guy Gourmet. For the record, his name is pronounced Kar-on.
Karon Liu will be hosting the Cooks’n’Books Stage from 12:15 AM to 6:00 PM.
