The smells of fresh baked bread, steamed pork and sugar fill the air and the sound of Mandarin Chinese fills my ears.  Here I am at what seems to be the start of a bad joke: “two Brits, a Singaporean, a South American and a group of Canadians meet at a Chinese bakery…” As the talk begins topics like slavery, Napoleon and sugar beets all come up in conversation while the taste of egg tart tantalizes the tongue.

IMG_20121202_122117The scenario above could easily be misunderstood as any quote from any travel blog or adventure narrative, but the reality is it was just another Sunday here in the best city in the world, Toronto. As a local and this city’s biggest fan I might be a little bit biased.  So when an acquaintance invited me on something called a “tasty tour” of the city, there was no way I could decline!

Audrey Ooi is a talented young entrepreneur who started a city ‘tasting tour’ business,with her love of food and creativity locals and tourist alike can get to know the products of local bakers, restaurants and shops that much better. Though I have been to Kensington market, hiding behind Toronto’s China-town, an uncountable amount of times I had never seen it though Audrey’s eyes.  Cupcakes at Cora’s, Wasabi truffles at the Chocolate Addict, churros at Panchos, and luxury marshmallow and chocolate at the Blue Banana made me realize not just how multicultural Toronto is, but also no matter how well you think you know a place there is always something new to explore. I cannot think of a better way to spend a Sunday.
