Rediscover Ontario Through This Guided Tour of Culinary Adventures

by | Dec 10, 2021 | Community

There’s so much to be said about re-discovering your own backyard.

For many of us, life is busy and opportunities to stop and smell the roses (or rosé) and find new adventures may be few and far between. But when that opportunity knocks, and you can answer, do it! 

The Great Taste of Ontario has provided this opportunity on a silver platter with hundreds of unique, food focused itineraries to inspire and help you plan your trips to explore this massive, beautiful and diverse province.

December is the last month … start your trip planning!

During the winter holidays, Ontario shines! It’s the perfect time to explore and enjoy festive offerings, holiday-themed foods and warm (or cold!) bevvies from the many unique communities around the province.

Start with the easily downloadable passports (there are more than 80 to choose from) to help guide your adventures or provide inspiration. Then plan your trip – keep it close to home or travel to far-off corners. Each time you visit the participating growers, wineries, craft brewers, farm shops, restaurants or other delicious, designated stops, you’ll increase your chance to redeem a prize. Most importantly, you’ll be supporting communities across Ontario while supporting Second Harvest!

Ontario is such a great wonder. During the holidays, in particular, festive offerings, holiday-themed foods and warm (or cold!) bevies certainly sweeten the pot.

Enjoy your adventure!
