The coldest part of the year is upon us and it’s a perfect time to warm your soul by exploring food in a new way with a culinary adventure.
In the winter, our first stop is always to gather ‘round a table overlooking the frozen Frenchman’s Bay at PORT Restaurant. This Feast ON accredited restaurant offers a wide selection of local food and drinks to comfort you on when the icy winds blow. Start with some maple sriracha duck wings but save room for the chocolate sticky toffee pudding –our favourite!
Take stock: They say the measure of a ‘foodie’ is the quality of their paring knife! Better get yourself to The Passionate Cook’s Essentials in charming Uxbridge. Spoil yourself with a new quality kitchenware item, hard-to-find condiments or something to take home from their cheese and charcuterie counter. Looking to expand their recipe collection and cooking expertise? Check out their in-store cooking and cheese classes.
Inspire yourself (and maybe someone else) with a visit to Eat It Forward. Their selection of premium health foods and knowledge will fuel you forward! By purchasing these nutritionally superior products you are also helping to nourish someone else through a new Food Bank across Canada.
Tuck in at Our Valley View Bed & Breakfast where your hosts raise their own bees! We hope you awake refreshed and ready to drizzle honey on your homemade muffins while overlooking the breathtaking Enniskillen Valley! The quiet of this rural location in winter will leave awaken your senses.
Explore Olive That. This tasting bar of artisan oils and vinegars allow you to explore the beautiful flavours and benefits of the freshest EVOO in the world. We think the lemon olive oil, tangerine and strawberry balsamic vinegar drizzled atop some winter greens could only be topped with the chardonnay sea salt.
Time your visit right and take a seat at any of the 12 local and independent restaurants participating in Whitbylicious. Enjoy exclusive prix fixe menus showcasing mouth-watering 3-course menus. Oh my!
Explore the town centre of Whitby where the historical flare is the perfect setting for shops like Penney and Co. Make sure to stop at the Durham College’s award winning W. Galen Westin Centre For Food, where you can watch students in action, enjoy lunch at Bistro ‘67 and then take home something from The Pantry made right on site.
