Feast On® the Farm: A Taste of Peterborough & the Kawarthas is a celebration of local food, drink and craftsmanship.
Peterborough, ON – Thrilled by the success of the series to date, the Culinary Tourism Alliance is pleased to announce the first Feast On® the Farm event for 2023 will be hosted in partnership with Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism at Lang Pioneer Village on May 28 & 29. Made possible by RBC, the unique two-day zero-waste fundraiser event series includes a thoughtfully curated gastronomic experience for food lovers on the first day, followed by a full day of interactive sessions for industry professionals only on the second day.
The consumer day event on May 28 brings together Chef Brad Watt of Publican House Brewery and Pub, Chef Tyler Scott from Rare Escape, and Chef Lisa Dixon, owner of Black Honey Cafe. Their curated dishes will be paired with local spirits by Persian Empire, craft beer by Bobcaygeon Brewing Company, and Sustainable Winegrowing Ontario Certified wines.
“We’re excited to host such an inspired event,” says Joe Rees, Director of Tourism at Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development. “Feast On® the Farm is a great opportunity for visitors to savour a menu that reflects the rich agricultural history of our region in a way that is genuinely in line with our sustainable tourism development goals.”
Every Feast On® the Farm consumer day ticket supports recovery in the culinary tourism industry and includes a subsidy for industry professionals to attend the Feast On® the Farm Industry Day the following day. Industry professionals can find more information on Industry Days, on the Culinary Tourism Alliance website.
“Our Feast On® program acts as the conduit to connect industry professionals with others in our network who are truly creating change in Ontario’s food and drink space,” says Billy Alexander, Director of Programs for the Culinary Tourism Alliance. “Industry day is about knowledge sharing, supporting each other, and working together toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”
