A foodie at heart, Natalia Dziubaniwsky escaped the city to embark on a rural road trip and with that, her taste buds did most of the exploring. Focused on finding the best unique foods at every stop, she uncovered the one-of-a-kind flavours of carrot soup in Madoc, spicy chocolate in Almonte, and an intimate meal surrounded by a cave in Eganville. Written brilliantly for Eat Drink Travel, check out her journey here, and pick up a few bonus pointers on which of these foodie stops also offers the chance to take home local products like honey, maple, and even antiques.
