I grew up in a grocery
store and to be honest in the Toronto of my youth our store catered to the “munga cakes”. The only thing ethnic
in the store was spaghetti and Challah bread that I loved. At home it was a different matter. We ate Italian.
As more and more people
came to Toronto from all over the world I developed a taste for ethnic foods through visiting my friends homes or in restaurants
throughout the city. It was there for any ones enjoyment. When I began touring I was exposed even further to the wide variety
of ethnic foods available in Toronto.
have now put together a tour aimed specifically at enjoying this abundance of ethnic foods we have at our doorstep. We start
by visiting Chinatown with its exotic fruits and vegetables, teas, dried foods and baked goods, and also hear of Traditional
door is Kensington. During the 1920s 30s and 40s, it was known as the Jewish Market. Today, you can sense the city's rich,
multicultural mix, obvious in the ethnic shops packed with goods from Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South America
and Asia. We will
visit, Tofu making, a spice store, a Latino store and an Ethiopian store. A visit to Kensington
is like a sensory trip around the world. The tour will start at the northeast corner of Spadina & Dundas.
