Ontario has an incredibly rich food culture and over at our café in Dundas we are proud to showcase that. We get to work with some really amazing farmers, artisans and producers who continually raise the bar and are strengthening the agricultural sectors in this province.
As far as culinary trends go, eating local has definitely been on the rise in recent years. But what does that really mean and how can you be sure that what you are purchasing has really been procured from as close to home as possible?
Enter FEAST ON, a foodservice designation program through the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance with support from the Ministry of Agriculture which aims to showcase the vast and abundant food and drink coming from this province. This certification gives consumers easy access to events, restaurants and food trucks that are purchasing at a minimum 25% of all food and beverage from Ontario.
Detour is a FEAST ON certified café and we are dedicated to procuring local food and drink whenever possible, shaping Ontario’s culinary identity and educating our own customers on where to purchase locally grown and produced food.
Why do we do it?
