Verses from my Kitchen: Kingston Eats Out

Kingston Eats Out

This past weekend we had the pleasure of visiting old and new friends in Kingston. As someone who used to live there I was anxious and excited to be heading to my home away from home and one of my favourite places.  I knew there was going to be good company and I knew Kingston has a great culinary story to tell, and I wanted to tell it.

We woke up Saturday morning and went for a stroll downtown. We grabbed something to eat at a breakfast landmark, hit up the farmers market across the street (one of the best markets in Ontario), stopped by a bakery where the aroma outside draws you in and visited some of the great restos and a critically acclaimed little place where a master Charcutier resides.  All in all, a mini-mecca of food sorts and one of the great destinations for foodies in Ontario.

The entire area around Kingston houses so many well-known restaurants, bakeries and markets that it's no wonder that Kingston and Prince Edward County are gaining a reputation and momentum all over the province. Wolfe Island, Odessa, and the entire county are worth visits in their own right. It may seem a tad far for people from Toronto but it's well worth the 3 hour drive. It's about the farmers, the chefs and the butchers nearby that are thriving and demanding our attention.

Below are some pictures from our recent trip. I know we'll be back one day to pick up from where we left off.
The breakfast joint for generations old and young, established 89 years ago.

Simple but oh-so-good diner fare!

Prince Edward County Roma tomatoes. So sweet!

Niagara nectarines and blueberries from Simcoe County.
A purveyor's selection to inspire.

Citrus lime plant that yields 200 limes a year! Wow!
A sweet basil plant, now in my kitchen!

Check out this Bay Leaf plant. Are you kidding me?

Heaven in a bakery. Pan Chancho.

Chez Piggy is a fine dining staple.

A restaurant known in different parts of the world. This young chef's bio is long and illustrious!
