“Durham Savour the Season – September 11-22, 2013.  A 12-day culinary experience you don’t want to miss!”


 What is Savour the Season?

Savour the Season is Durham’s annual culinary festival showcasing our local harvest. Durham Region chefs are paired with local farmers and producers to transform fresh local fare into mouth-watering dishes offered at a fixed price.

Imagine savouring a bowl of butternut squash soup, creatively prepared by a Durham Region chef using squash that was picked yesterday from a farm just down the road. Enjoy a warm apple crisp made using freshly picked Durham Region apples, and drizzled with local maple syrup. How about an entree featuring fresh, grass-fed organic local beef, and complementing your meal with a glass of fruit wine from one of Durham Region’s award-winning wineries?

Savour the Season’s featured menus offer at least one appetizer, main course and dessert where the main element is from a local Durham Region or Ontario supplier. You’ll get to taste Durham Region’s freshest seasonal bounty, while supporting sustainable agriculture.
