Campaign - Unofficial Museums: Culinary

Unofficial culinary museums in Ottawa

Sure, you might know that Ottawa is the original home of the world-renown BeaverTails pastry, and that our streets are lined with food trucks serving everything from fried favourites to fancy fare. But did you know that this is where the North American headquarters of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Institute is located? That, as a world class destination, we offer international culinary delights in neighbourhoods such as Little Italy, Chinatown or the ByWard Market? And that the Ottawa region has more farms than Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary combined (and several farmers’ markets to explore)?  

Discover how this unique blend of elements inspires Ottawa chefs, brewmasters, winemakers and distillers to create expected and unexpected culinary experiences that will titillate your tastebuds.
