I have lived in Toronto most of my life but it was quite a treat to experience this great city like a tourist.
I did the "Oh Canada!" sweets tour in the Distillery District as part of a bachelorette weekend and had an incredible time. The theme of the tour was Canadian desserts and I am still thinking about those butter tarts and ice-wine macaroons! Audrey was our tour guide and was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable in describing the history of the distillery district in addition to the Canadian origins of all the desserts. She is a wonderful conversationalist.
I appreciated the variety of desserts that our group was offered (fresh local fruit, honey, chocolates, cakes, pastries, etc). One of the highlights was tasting goat-cheese chocolates...go figure!
I especially loved that Audrey thought to balance an entire morning of sweets with savory samples of poutine at the Mill Street Brewery along with beer and root beer to wash it down.
This is a "must-do" day activity for anyone with a sweet tooth and for those that value local food production.
