Your Local Taste Buds are bringing you their BIGGEST and LONGEST food experience yet: DISHED!
With over 20 participating restaurants across Cornwall and SDG — many of which are newly featured by the Taste Buds — we want to remind residents of the innovative and tasty options that are right in their backyards.
Participating restaurants were asked to showcase a new, special or signature dish starting Friday, Feb. 5 until the first week of March. If you miss travelling, you don’t have to leave your region or bubble to experience a dish from around the globe! From authentic Thai, Greek, Indian, German, Italian dishes and more, there is sure to be something that will satisfy your taste buds.
If you’re tired of cooking, feeling those February blues, or looking for something special for Valentine’s Day, local restaurants have your dish covered with take-out or delivery options.
“We’re thrilled to be able to partner with Cornwall Tourism and SDG Tourism to bring you our newest event, DISHED,” said Your Local Taste Buds co-founder Pat Larose. “We have so many great dining options throughout our region, it’s nice to be able to showcase as many as we can. This is also a great time to help support our local restaurants.”
“It is very important to do everything we can to keep our local restaurants thriving at a time like this!” said Matt Girgis, Your Local Taste Buds co-founder. “We want to thank Cornwall Tourism and SDG Tourism for assisting us in our campaign to keep the local love alive and show everyone how they can #getdished.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many local restaurants have added new menu items, created classic and trendy pairings, and even opened their doors despite current challenges. Now is your chance to expand your palate and find a new favourite while staying safe at home.
“We have an amazing culinary scene and Dished is all about showcasing and supporting it,” said Kevin Lajoie of Cornwall Tourism. “It’s a chance for local residents to safely try a new dish or an old favourite while supporting the restaurants that add so much to our community.”
“SDG Tourism is excited to partner with Taste Buds and Cornwall Tourism to bring you Dished, an exciting new foodie event!” said Karina Belanger of SDG Tourism. “Now more than ever our local restaurants need your support, so have fun tasting some new featured dishes, and maybe find a new favourite!”
