Norfolk restaurants serve up local food promotion

“A Taste of Norfolk”

Norfolk County, known as “Ontario’s Garden”, continues to grow its culinary tourism experiences with the introduction of a new local food promotion –A Taste of Norfolk.

Savour the flavours of Norfolk County foods at some of the area’s favourite restaurants beginning September 24th through October 3rd.  Chefs serve up specific “local only” menus for the 10 days with a focus on promoting the specific Norfolk County farms and products that make up their mouth-watering dishes.  With guidance from the Culinary Tourism Committee, Norfolk County is providing promotional support, restaurant flyers and tent cards, website support and other resources for this new event.

“This is a great new event for our restaurants and culinary tourism committee and Norfolk County as a whole to promote Norfolk’s local cuisine, farmers and all of the great foods right here, to residents and visitors,” says Heather Pond, owner of the Blue Elephant and member of the Tourism and Economic Development Advisory Board.

Appetizer, entree and dessert selections in a variety of price points are available at most restaurants for lunch and dinner.  Patrons who choose from the A Taste of Norfolk menu will receive a ballot for a grand prize (zip-lining at Long Point Eco-Adventures and wine sampling at Burning Kiln Winery.)  Ten restaurants from across Norfolk County are participating.  For the full list of menus, locations and times, visit www.norfolkfarms.com.

The event ends on a bang with the sold-out “A Taste of Norfolk Harvest Dinner” being held at the Norfolk County Fair and Horse Show – the fair’s opening gala.  Discover more local foods from Ontario’s Garden at FlavourFest, October 4th-10th at the Norfolk County Fair.

Norfolk County offers unique experiences to its visitors while they travel throughout “Ontario’s South Coast”.  Scenic drives along Lake Erie, birding, agri-tourism, festivals, heritage and culture and so much more.  For more information, visit www.norfolktourism.ca or call 1-800-699-9038   1-800-699-9038
