Something really neat is getting off the ground in Essex County!
The Municipality of Leamington, in conjunction with the Leamington Uptown Business Improvement Association (BIA), just launched Taste Leamington.
“What our community has is a unique food experience,” says Leamington’s Chief Administrative Officer Peter Neufeld, “we have decided it should be shared with the world. It’s time to get the word out that the food here is exceptional, global, fresh, and authentic. Our message is “Welcome to Leamington where we embrace global and eat local. Come, Taste Leamington”.
Taste Leamington is the next step in Leamington’s Tourism strategy and the first program of its kind to both promote food offerings in a community and help small local businesses promote their authentic food experiences.
Designed to market Leamington as a unique culinary destination, Taste Leamington will tell the story of the Municipality’s unique culinary identity by branding Leamington as a community of diversity with varied culinary offerings. The program aligns with Leamington’s tourism strategy to market Leamington as a unique place for residents and visitors to experience global food using local ingredients.
Four local restaurants, representing four different cultures make up the first round of participants. Participants include Pho Saigon (Vietnamese), The Pita Place (Greek), The Gallery (Portuguese) and Crave Family Pub and Grill (North American).
Keep an eye on their website to watch the program grow.
