This is the best way to do a tasting and work off the calories at the same time.

So you're going to Canada, eh? And you want to eat poutine, eh? Well lucky for you this culinary experience will take you beyond poutine and introduce you to a selection of Canadian favorites. Visiting seven of Victoria's most 'Canadian' and historic establishments this will be more than a food tour.

2017 marked the 150th anniversary of the formation of Canada as a country and our goal today is to provide an overview of traditional Canadian specialties from each region of the country, as well as more recent trends. Our selection of tastings will include Canadian salmon, poutine, Nanaimo bars, maple syrup and even beaver tail (not a real beaver tail but a well-loved Canadian dessert)! There will be more too, but we'll let your guide surprise you.

End your day with a new found appreciation for Canadian culture, history and food.
