Come Wander
Hastings County Foodie Tour

When it comes to food, there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who eat merely to sustain themselves, and then there’s people like Britt and Jeff. “We take food seriously! It’s not just a source of nutrients,” they write in this recap of a recent foodie road trip through Hastings County. To this couple, food is “a hobby, a favourite past time, a tool for people to connect; food is art…beautiful, edible, delicious art.”
