Weekend Cooking - A Feast for the Eyes - or The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival


It's pancake time again in my neck of the woods.
Elmira, Ontario is celebrating. 
 According to Guinness World Records, they host the worlds largest one day Maple Syrup Festival.


Myself and daughter caught in the act.


 I won.


Fudge anyone?


The most amazing assortment of syrup bottles are available.
 


Suckers of every flavour.
 

Hubby's favourite, cheese curds.
 

I gather that wizards come to the festival for their turkey drumsticks.
 

The cinnamon rolls look good even before baking.


The bright green wasabi spread begged for a photo.  
It is just to darn vivid to put on food.
 

And to top it all off, spun maple sugar.

For more foodie fun, be sure to visit Beth Fish Reads for her Weekend Cooking.  You are invited to add a link to your recent food related post.

Thanks for taking us along to the Maple Syrup Festival! Maple syrup cotton candy sounds great! I think I would spend too much money buying all the cool bottles of syrup! BTW, your daughter and you really look alike :)

Oh my, thanks so much for this tour. I have never been to a maple festival but it's one of my favorite flavors. I need to pay attention next spring.

I loved seeing all the different bottles.
