“I’m here for the food.” That’s what Ayngelina Brogan, owner of Toronto’s Loka restaurant and a self-proclaimed foodie, thought as she set out on a trip to the Ottawa Valley. More specifically, Ayngelina was after a specific type of food: one that conjures up images for her of plaid shirts and mittens, and is best when made in small batches – maple! Follow this Rustic Roamer’s journey to Ottawa Valley Maple Adventures as she learns about the history of this so-Canadian staple, explores a sugar shack, finds a local secret that allows visitors to make maple syrup even in the summer months; drinks maple brews and geeks out on “the good stuff” with a maple bacon fudge brownie ice cream parfait at a resort that reminds her of Dirty Dancing. Read her full story here.
