WRITER + CO-FOUNDER
Dick Snyder writes about food, drinks, guitars, music, travel and other fun stuff for publications such as Zoomer, Canada’s 100 Best, The Toronto Star and Harry. He has been writing about Toronto’s food and drink scene for more than 15 years, and was the founder of CityBites Magazine (2005 – 2015). Inspired by some great food tours he took in San Sebastian, Scottsdale and Puerto Vallarta, he launched the walking tour company Drink Toronto (drinktoronto.ca) in 2017 with sommelier Erin Henderson (The Wine Sisters). Drink Toronto provides guests a VIP taste experience at Toronto’s top restaurants and bars while showing off the city’s neighbourhoods and the people who make them great. Snyder has his Diploma in Wines and Spirits from WSET, and he judges for the Ontario Wine Awards. One day, he hopes to be an expert in wine or an organic market gardener, whichever comes first.
