It was not so long ago that “eating out” in Muskoka meant a wiener roast following a placid canoe trip, or grilling up the fish you caught earlier in the day. In recent years, however, cottage-country dining has gone increasingly upscale, and acclaimed restaurants seek to please the palates of sophisticated residents and vacationers alike.

Muskoka is now home to superlative chefs capable of crafting the most intricate of entrees. Thankfully, these culinary stars, and the establishments at which they toil, still have a sense of what makes this expanse of geography so special—its natural bounty. From berries and mushrooms to myriad vegetables and maple syrup, the region is blessed with an abundance of indigenous and farmed foodstuffs. These often-organic ingredients are highlighted as part of the Savour Muskoka dining program.
