Pinecone Cottage Tea House – Niagara-on-the-Lake Afternoon Tea

July 8, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

I love to escape to Niagara-on-the-Lake and enjoy the tree lined and flower filled streets of the charming old town. There are many unique things to do and see in this lovely part of Ontario. Last summer I was fortunate enough to stay at the Applewood Hollow Bed and Breakfast where Paul and I relaxed in our unique suite with a second-floor bedroom loft. Their breakfast crew of laying hens provided us with fresh country egg dishes and desserts, and they support the local farms. The hands-on cooking class at the Wine Country Cooking School located within Strewn Winery did not disappoint. I adore the way both of these businesses use the incredible diversity and bounty of fruit and produce grown in their own neighborhoods. This is my riff on the menu items created at the cooking class and savored at the B&B.

Fun Fact: We will be offering a very special trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake very soon. Be sure to ask me to provide further details!
