Our Long Weekend in Toronto

After trying unsuccessfully to fly Westjet Airlines to Toronto on Wednesday, I tried again on Thursday, and yay! I made it.  I met Therese, and we have had so much fun.  Walking tours have been at the center of it all – a self-guided tour of downtown Toronto, a tour of the Distillery District with Segway Tours of Ontario and a culinary tour of Riverside and Leslieville with Culinary Adventures Co.  But there has also been lots of good food and some adventures – lunch at Toronto’s best-kept secret, Osgoode Hall, and today we are having lunch at the Frank Restaurant at the Art Gallery of Ontario.  We have been enjoying a suite at Hilton Toronto, right in the middle of everything, and we will be sad to leave Toronto this afternoon and head back to boring mundane old New York City.

Stay tuned to hear the details and see the pictures!  This week there will also be more Valrhona Chocolate adventures and another post on our September trip to Belgium.  And we will be attending some screenings at the NY Film Festival, and visiting a new vegan cafe or two for lunch and pastries.  Stay tuned!

About Karl Peterson

Karl Peterson is an avid traveler, passionate about food and food-related entertainment, completely allergic to dairy. He is founder, owner and principle contributor to “The Dairy Free Traveler” blog. The Dairy Free Traveler perfectly dovetails two of his greatest areas of interest: traveling near and far, and searching for great cuisine (especially dairy free!)

The Dairy Free Traveler publishes original material about the dairy free lifestyle, eating the best food in the most interesting destinations around the world. Karl’s tours take him from thriving New York City, to exotic Marrakesh, to elegant Paris bistros — (yes! even Parisians have gotten on the dairy free bandwagon.)

The Dairy Free Traveler himself also engages with independent dairy free food producers, highlighting new dairy free product launches and events that support dairy free entrepreneurs.

Peterson is among the top 7 most widely read TripAdvisor reviewers in New York City and is repeatedly cited as a Top Contributor at TripAdvisor.com. His reviews have garnered more than 542,000 readers — half in the U.S., and half among the many countries he has visited around the world.

Beyond writing this blog, Peterson is a published author, with contributions to “Savoring Gotham” edited by Andrew F. Smith (published 2015 by Oxford University) and the forthcoming Oxford Companion to Cheese (a bit ironic, yes, but a professional is often asked to stretch beyond their comfort zone!).
