Ottawa At It’s Best

By on March 4, 2017

Being an Ottawa native, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to not only talk about my hometown, but also share with you some of the great events that are lined up for the Nation’s Capital.

My article, Enjoying Ottawa in 2017 featured in Modern Mississauga, highlights the amazing attractions and activities that locals and tourists can take part in all-year-round. The article also pays tribute to all the amazing events lined up to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary. It also features the incredible culinary works that some of our local chefs have demonstrated in their new successful establishments.

Regardless of the season, one can enjoy Ottawa’s captivating and multifaceted beauty that can be witnessed all year long.

I am proud to share this article with you and hopefully you will come and visit this beautiful city, that I call home.

Bon Appétit!

  • I was searching for some warm comfort food on this chilly Tuesday evening and @supply_ottawa exceeded all expectations as usual! Their tuna crudo is always a MUST for me and then I got comfort from their whipped salt cod brandade. Absolutely delicious! And because I just HAD to indulge even more...dessert was  Queen Elizabeth cake with orange and anise ice cream! #foodie #foodgasm #foodporn #nomnom #instafood #foodie #foodblogger #ottawafoodies #ottawaeats #supportlocal #613eats #ottawarestaurants #delicious #deliciousfood
