Kids savour the flavours of culinary boot camp.

The Savour the Flavour Boot Camp was an Outrageously Rural experience that lead to great food, lots of fun and a few good laughs! This chef-led, intensive, outrageous culinary training demanded Junior students, from ages 11 - 14, to roll up their sleeves, dig in and take a fresh look at the foods they eat and how they are prepared.

Enjoy great meals and one-of-a-kind shopping on this two-day getaway.

Itinerary highlights: fabulous food, antique stores, art galleries, a winery and a lavender farm.

Deciding where to stay when visiting the beautiful region of Ontario’s Southwest can be tricky. With a myriad of places to choose from it’s a real Pandora’s Box of vacation opportunity.  So to help I thought I would share my favourites.

How Mumford and Sons made their way to Ontario's Southwest.

How did one of the world’s biggest bands end up at the Norfolk County Fairgrounds in Simcoe, Ontario? That’s the question that’s been asked over and over again since February 5th when the news was released that Mumford and Sons would be bringing their first-ever Canadian Gentlemen of the Road Stopover to the Fairgrounds in Simcoe.
