A Taste of Toronto's Culinary Neighbourhoods

Growing up in Toronto, the city has always been a food wonderland. I could find exotic spices and vegetables at the India Bazaar, fresh fish and meat at one of our various markets and of course, a dessert like no other on the Danforth.

As a foodie, there is nothing like wandering a neighbourhood and experiencing a new meal or learning the inside scoop of a new restaurant, bakery or local grocery store.

Harbourfront Centre's 'Learning for Living' series has made the discovery experience even more exciting and community-focused. Starting April 28th, Shirley Lum, founder of Toronto's Taste of the World Tours will be guiding fellow foodies on four culinary adventures around the city.

The 6-hour tours will focus on Little India, Kensington/Chinatown, Danforth and Little Italy each on separate days - where you will get a chance to discover, taste, talk and live the cultural experience of that neighbourhood.

What I find exciting about this series is that although you can do a tour or discovery on your own, you get a chance to familiarize yourself with a neighbourhood with other foodies. Sharing your thoughts, learnings and possibly potential recipe ideas is always better with a group rather then on own.

On the flip side, these areas are pretty well known. I was hoping to see areas like Tamilville in Scarborough or the growing number of patisserie's in the Y&E south to Bloor neighbourhoods.

$80 for workshop or $25 per session
