A TASTE OF KAWARTHAS NORTHUMBERLAND
This autumn, we spent 3 days eating our way across Kawarthas Northumberland in search of what makes this part of Ontario so unique. We met with seven Feast On chefs, countless farmers and a slew of artisans on the hunt for a true taste of place in Kawarthas Northumberland. Here’s what happened.
JUST EAST OF TORONTO.
JUST WEST OF KINGSTON.
The area consists of three diverse regions. Peterborough & The Kawarthas is home to passionate chefs, wineries and farmers’ markets. Kawartha Lakes boasts butter tarts, country charm and plenty of on-farm experiences sure to take your breath away. Meanwhile, in Northumberland County, chefs and visitors alike can enjoy a laid back vibe with plenty of craft beer.
