Renowned for its woodsy cottage country, weathered pines and rocky shorelines, Muskoka supports a food culture built upon foraging, picking, tapping and preserving the fruits of the forest.
Blueberries, strawberries and cranberries from Muskoka add zest to Ontario cuisine, while local maple products satisfy the discriminating sweet tooth. Poultry, eggs and root vegetables thrive in protected valleys, while a wide variety of mushrooms flourish in the forest or the farm.
Never underestimate the resourcefulness of Muskoka producers. An influx of hungry cottagers each summer challenges local entrepreneurs to fill the plate, while gracing the table with floral delights.
