Culinary Tourism in our region has a proud history but its most recent chapter began in the 1800's with the arrival of tourists on steamship and train for summers at area resorts and cottages. Indeed, many of the first resorts evolved from farming operations started by settlers. At one time, much of the fresh produce consumed by visitors was grown locally and to this day Butter & Egg Road near Milford Bay serves as a reminder of the many farms that used to supply dairy products to tourists. Through SAVOUR Muskoka you now have the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of our culture through local food and drink. In December 2004, area representatives from the agricultural, hospitality, retail, and micro-processing industries came together and created a plan to promote the Muskoka/Parry Sound region as a dynamic culinary tourism destination.
