Here we are, all proud of our measly 150th birthday in 2017 when just down the road, the town of Perth is a whopping 200 years old this year! One of the celebratory events is a two-hour guided food tour (Saturdays at 1 p.m., May 14 – June 25), a pleasant stroll that takes in a bit of history, a bit of scenery, and visits to at least a half dozen restaurants, pubs, and bakeries, with sampling at each stop. Each tour is limited to 16 participants, so there’s ample opportunity to quiz the guide — and Perth’s best chefs and bakers — about all things food and drink as you tour the town with your tastebuds. $30 per person. Reserve ahead at 1-613-267-1947.
City Bites Hot Tips: Don’t eat lunch! Do bring a cooler so you can stock up on edible discoveries. Do arrive a bit early and visit the downtown Perth Farmers’ Market (open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
