Ice Hotel and Quebec Winter Carnival | Bucket List Thrills in Canada

Jan 17, 2012  |   Contributor: Karin Leperi

Whether we admit it or not, we all have them — bucket list items we'd like to check off and experience before we depart ways with mother Earth. Admittedly, one of mine is to embrace winter in a way that celebrates snow and ice and to...well, sleep on ice. Yes, there I said it.

Quebec's Gourmet Foodie Delights

Mar 12, 2012  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

International travelers sometimes refer to Canada as "one giant Whole Foods." If that's the case, then Quebec is the deli section: chock-full of game meats, stinky cheeses, sweet maple pastries and ice wine. Of fast foods, it has many - poutine being the most infamous - but when it comes to gourmet, this French-Canadian province pulls out the stops with presentation and ingredients.... Read More

British Columbia | Home Grown and Tasty

Feb 10, 2012  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

It makes sense that British Columbia would rush to raise the flag of the local/sustainable/seasonal dining movement. Fertile lands, temperate climate, bounteous sea life and incredible foraging are nature's gift to Canada's southwestern coastal province. The people tend to be an educated and sensitive lot - many of whom have moved from other parts of Canada or the world to follow their dreams of artisan cheesemaking or the 100-Mile Diet. And the mayor of Vancouver has vowed to make it the "greenest city in the world" by 2020. Because, as this gallery will show, the green, organic and artisan foods to be found within 100 miles of Vancouver can offer an out-of-this-world dining experience, every day.... Read More

Niagara-on-the-Lake | A Little Ice Wine With Everything

Dec 18, 2011  |   Contributor: Melanie Votaw  |  3 Comments

Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada (just over the border from New York State) is well-known for ice wines, and the village takes full advantage of this notoriety. The main drag, Queen Street, is graced with signs for "ice wine fudge," "ice wine coffee," "ice wine tea," and "ice wine chocolates." An Icewine Festival is even celebrated there every January. But the village is even more famous for the Shaw Festival every summer, showcasing plays by George Bernard Shaw, as well as other productions.... Read More

10 Thanksgiving Celebrations Around the World

Nov 21, 2011  |   Contributor: The Daily Meal

The day of grace and gluttony we know as Thanksgiving is more than just the big meal before Black Friday. It has rather noble origins. When our pioneering forefathers arrived on American shores, they left the Mayflower in a tragic state. Throughout the winter at sea they suffered from exposure, scurvy, and outbreaks of contagious diseases. When only half of the original crew made it to the New World, an Abenaki Indian greeted them in their native tongue of English. Days later, he returned with Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe, who was sold into slavery to an English sea captain.... Read More

So we shall make do with a disorderly and probably unfair roundup (because we can't possibly include EVERYTHING that's deserving), in installments as we can manage. Here's a first dispatch of harvest-time goodness, with more to follow — in no particular ranking, because "better" in this case is only a matter of personal taste.... Read More

Epic North American Train Journeys

Aug 26, 2011  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

The relentless coal-devouring “iron horses” that redefined land travel during the Industrial Revolution are now considered a romantic and experiential relic from the past. Aside from AMTRAK and modern commuter trains of the East coast, North America’s remaining railroads are strictly scenic—which is not necessarily a bad thing. Without having to worry about things like commuter service and freight hauling, railway revivalists can find and explore those epic pockets of natural beauty, like Verde Canyon pictured here, that highways don’t touch and humans can never reach on their own two feet....
