Wolfville Food Tours: A fun and yummy afternoon with friends**Disclosure: I received a ticket to this event in exchange for this blog post. Plus, I love going to things to support friends who are doing interesting things! All opinions are my own, but some of the pictures are my friend's.** Jeremy Novak has done it again! I met Jeremy through Valley Ghost Walks when I worked with him to write some of the scripts. We've remained friends, trying to support each other in our entrepreneurial activities! Jeremy is the host of Valley Ghost Walks and also the main guide on the Magic Wine Bus in Wolfville, and now has created the Wolfville Food Tours. So, when Jeremy suggested I come with him on a Wolfville Food Tour, I jumped at the chance! Here's what it's about:
Wolfville is a culinary hotspot in the Annapolis Valley with over 21 eateries to entice the most famished foodie. Wolfville Food Tours helps navigate through the abundance of culinary choice with samples at each location. This flavourful journey will leave your taste buds satisfied and have you making a list of where to visit again tomorrow.Our group gathered at Just Us! in Wolfville to start our tour. And, it was wonderful to discover that we all new each other! I brought my friend, Lia, who is very involved with the Devour Food Film Festival in Wolfville. It was right up her alley! Carla Dunham makes the most amazing jewelry and can be found at the Wolfville Farmers' Market. We also used to live across the street from each other! Angela Jenkins can also be found at the Wolfville Farmers' Market under Sister Lotus, who uses herbs to make everything from salt scrubs to medicinal salves. It was with this crew that we set out on our Wolfville Food Tour.
"I've lived here all my life, and I'm still learning new things!" ~ CarlaThe best part was that each restaurant we got to sample some of the menu items! Each item was carefully selected to best represent the restaurant/cafe and maybe expose participants to items they might not have considered ordering before. Part of the fun of the afternoon was that we had no idea where we were going next! We purposely asked Jeremy not to tell us, so we could be surprised. The list of restaurants are subject to change, as are the menu items that you get to sample. But, here's where we stopped, and a huge shout-out to those participating restaurants! Just Us! Wolfville Paddy's Wolfville Troy Charts Li's Wok & Grill Joe's Food Emporium Naked Crepe Annapolis Cider Company We had an amazing afternoon, hanging out together, laughing, eating, and trying new things on menus, we might not have otherwise. We have often talked about doing a restaurant hop, but this way is so much easier! The food is ready when you arrive, and you don't have to pay for anything, as it's all included in your ticket price (unless you want to order a drink at some of the locations).
