We take a trip to Chicago every summer to visit family and I have to say, the food there is simply divine! So many options in terms of fine dining, far more than Toronto. We also love taking trips to Montreal - another great foodie city. Of course, our friends have a place out near Stratford we visit a few times each summer and that would be the best "local" getaway place for us. This summer, we will certainly being doing Chicago and Stratford again.

I haven't presonally done this but friends of mine just got back from a 5 day food tour of Prince Edward County and love it!! (that's on my list) If you are heading east you could eat your body weight in delicious seafood up and down the coast of Nova Scotia....Digby scallops...Yum!! There are even some newer wineries in NS to check out. There are tons of fantastic places in the Muskoka region--add in Algonquin park hikes/paddles and that would make for one memorable trip. I really better start doing some planning.....: )

Montreal is a real food lover’s city. There are a ton of good and inexpensive French restaurants, great markets and the best smoked meat in the world.

My best friend and I recently got back from a wonderful trip to PEI not only was it the best trip of our lives but the best food of our lives. Fresh lobster/oysters from Colville Bay/mussels (we dug our own and the fresh Haddock from the fisherman. We went to the Charlottetown Market and got fresh organic veggies, spices, organic meat, homemade perogies and cabbage rolls and the best strawberry shortcake we have ever had. We ate 5 pounds of wild blueberries in a week from John A Macdonalds farm in West Souris. We celebrated Lisa's Birthday at Shelter Harbour Cafe and ate the best Haddock, mussels and scallops and veggies of our life. I have to give credit to Chef Michael Smith for showcasing PEI on his Chef at Home show which inspired us to spend the best 11 days of our lives in PEI. We will be back....Fall Flavours is coming up please check that out.
