Best Ontario Food and Experiences
When it comes to the Best Ontario Food and Experiences there’s a lot to talk about because this province has Canada’s “green belt” for growing along with a huge population and amazing diversity. Home to Canada’s largest city, Toronto, and the nation’s capital, Ottawa, Ontario has a long growing season and mild climate throughout the south. Produce is abundant. Wine regions include Niagara and Prince Edward County.
Here are a few of our favourite Ontario places to eat and food experiences:
Merrill House – Chefs Michael and Lili Sullivan are famous for their Prince Edward County wine country cuisine and afternoon tea in this mansion owned by antiques and art collector, Jordan Martin de Rosales in Picton.
Langdon Hall – Chef Jason Bangerter has a 30 hectare estate plus a kitchen garden to forage in this famed romantic escape in Cambridge.
Visit Prince Edward County – This county is exemplary in its clarity and organization when it comes to engaging food offerings and experiences. Check it out.
