I mentioned in my last post that I’d be sharing photos throughout the week from our trip to Ottawa, so here’s installment #2.
Although I didn’t think to take too many photos of food, there was a ton of it, and it was all amazing! Apparently Ottawa is turning into quite the gastronomic centre, and I enjoyed every moment of that. There’s even a Cordon Bleu School there, with some of the top chefs in the world studying. Next trip I”m going to try to get into the chef’s dinner – you sit in the kitchen and watch him prepare your food; that is my idea of a great evening!
There’s an area in town called the Byward Market. A great place with restaurants/bars, bakeries, shops, artisans, an open market, and small stores. We spent a lot of our time there, just wandering and seeing what was for sale, and of course… eating. There was a great little patisserie with wonderful pastries and cookies. I tried out a chocolate danish – delish! I’m surprised I didn’t gain 10 pounds while we were there!
