Rhode Island chefs invade Montreal: up-to-the-minute #chefsincanada tweets and Instagram photos
If you love food and you’re an active Twitter or Instagram user you are probably well aware of #chefsincanada. For the third year in a row a group of Rhode Island chefs—Matthew Gennuso of Chez Pascal, Matt Jennings of Farmstead & La Laiterie, Ed Reposa of Thee Red Fez, Jake Rojas of Tallulah on Thames, Beau Vestal of New Rivers and Derek Wagner of Nick’s on Broadway—have taken an exploratory eating expedition to Montreal, Canada. During the trip five of the chefs tweet their adventures and four of them post photos to Instagram as well. Because not everyone uses these services, but everyone should get the chance to see what the best of Rhode Island’s culinary world are immersing themselves in, Eat Drink RI has installed a couple of apps to share the details with you. The Twitter feed below grabs the twelve most current tweets containing the #chefsincanada hashtag and the seven most recent photos in the Instagram feeds of Jennings, Rojas, Vestal and Wagner are below as well. These apps will refresh every few minutes so you can reload or return to this page often for the latest posts and photos. I highly suggest you follow all the chefs on Twitter and Instagram, not just for these few days while they are traveling together, but all year-round. You can click on their names in the feed app below to follow.
