Toronto: Canadian Food Discovery at the St Lawrence Market

1. Toronto: Canadian Food Discovery at the St Lawrence Market

Discover the local cuisine of Toronto with a visit to a famous food market and enjoy the most delectable local eats with an expert knowledge guide. After a brief introduction to Old Town Toronto (the neighborhood where your tour takes place), your guide will walk you past Berczy Park which features a stunning new fountain. From there, make your way to one of your guide's favorite coffee shops for a brew of your choice, before you visit a small sandwich shop nearby which is reputed to have the best apple cake in the world. From there, head to St. Lawrence Market, which National Geographic once declared the “best food market in the world”. At the market, you’ll learn about the origin of Toronto’s official signature food: the peameal bacon sandwich. Celebrity chefs from Emeril to Anthony Bourdain have bitten into one of these, and now it’s your turn. Time will be spent inside St. Lawrence Market visiting vendors and sampling foods that have played an important role in the cultures of immigrants who settled there over the past two centuries. Learn about foods that have become common in this region, including how some of the favorites are virtually unknown outside of Ontario. Each food stop offers the opportunity to interact with vendors, ask questions, and learn even more from the experts. Foods throughout your tour can include butter tarts, artisanal mustard and pretzel sticks, ginger ale, Montreal-style bagels, cheese curds, pierogis, maple candy, and more. The final stop on the tour will be a local pub that has been around for decades. This spot serves creative versions of the popular French-Canadian dish known as poutine. By the end of the tour, you will not only have a better understanding of what Canadian food is, but also a little bit about what it means to be Canadian.
