It’s Sunday night as I write this – still reeling from a 12 hour food odyssey that took Dana and I through some of the most beautiful country we have visited in a long time which was paired with meeting some of the nicest and most passionate foodies we have met a long time. We must have spoken with a two dozen people in love with food today – eating it, growing it, sharing it and sharing what others are doing with no hint of envy.
We visited the amazing Prince Edward County today. It will take more than a week to post what we found, who we met, what we tried and what we bought. We’ll be making apple sauce on Monday, trying beer through the week and letting you know about some real cook cats that we were fortunate to meet today.
The area (near Trenton and Picton) is the home to 33 small vineyards – there are 9 more about to open. There are artisanal cheese makers, breweries, restaurants, jams and even an artisanal hot dog wagon which sells homemade product from a 1960′s airstream trailer. It was food heaven and an absolute must visit this summer.
Stay tuned this week for a whole lot more – in the mean time take a peak at the apple we bought today. It tasted fresh from the tree and we are making a bushel of sauce tomorrow. The vendor has been selling apples for more than 100 years and it is run by the third generation of the same family since that time. Stay tuned!
