The Peterborough Examiner provided excellent coverage of the Culinary Tours in today’s paper. But don’t just trust me, have a peek for yourself!
“The third year of the tour includes several new stops, including Two Dishes Cookhouse, The Publican House Brewery, Holiday Inn, Be Catering and new forays into East City with stops at Firehouse Gourmet and the Ashburnham Ale House, owner and tour operator Donald Fraser said. Special evening events and some new regional trips may also be in the plans for 2014.
Last year, most tours were sold out by July, Fraser said. Its growing popularity coincides with renewed interest in local, seasonal eating.
‘There was obviously great interest in what is going on in the (downtown) core,’ he said, adding how most bookings are a result word of mouth advertising. ‘The buzz is definitely there.’
The tour also shows the nice correlation between establishments and producers. Chefs are often are the market only a couple hours before they are serving, he said.”
