A passion for food!Published on December 12, 2013

Fun with food, all day, all night, that's what Gusto TV promises to be! And we think they're going to deliver. If the swanky launch party was an indicator of their ability to entertain, we have high hopes for this exciting new Canadian television launch.

The launch party for Canada's new Multiplatform HD food network, Gusto TV, happened at Ottawa's aviation museum on December 11, 2013. The network is a venture for Knight Enterprises, whose founder Chris Knight is well known on the Ottawa food scene. The party set the tone for a sophisticated lifestyle venture, yet to be seen in Canada.

Blackbook Lifestyle was the event planner and Thyme & Again were the caterers behind the evening that offered up innovative food and oodles of style. The dessert wall was a highlight!  

Kicking off the night was the live launch of the network, with Chris Knight "pulling the switch" to jump into a vintage Julia Child episode, a perfect fit!

Knight gave an emotional speech, tearfully acknowledging those who have supported and partnered with him, including his wife and son.

Viewers can expect all the food greats with TV series from Donna Hay, Martha Stewart, Vintage Julia, James Martin and so much more.

For more on Gusto TV and the people behind this exciting initiative pick up our winter issue, coming Feb 15th.
