Exploring Uxbridge, Ontario

An amazing day exploring Uxbridge, Ontario! A couple of highlights of the day were stumbling into an all Gluten free bakery! The owner splits her time between the bakery and her restaurant "Frankie's" down the street. An all gluten free restaurant and bakery, pretty cool! If you're ever in the area drop in, I know I plan on eating there the next time I'm in town.

If you're a passionate foodie like me you can't miss this stop, The passionate Cook's essentials 
 It is a foodie's dream in there, the pantry is well stocked with all kinds of spices, condiments and interesting ingredients, I picked up a small bottle of local Canadian birch syrup, something I've been on the hunt for since my trip to Iceland.  Upon walking in you can't miss the large open concept kitchen with gorgeous granite counter top,  this is because they do cooking classes on site!  How fun would it be to book a pasta making class with your significant other or perhaps explore something new and exotic like a Moroccan cooking class with your girlfriends, they even do a brie cheese class and you get to take home your own mini brie wheel!

And last but not least the local Soap Shop Savon Du Bois! It's not just soap in there, upon walking in you can't miss an entire wall of tea inside.  The ladies I met are super passionate and educated about the Silk Road teas that they carry from British Colombia. Very high quality stuff and if you don't want to commit to a big batch you can simply pickup a convenient 10 cup little flat tin from the many varieties that they carry.
I was also pleasantly surprised to see that they carry the Pixie Glass pendants, so now you don't have to order them all the way from Alberta, just visit the store and you can choose from the many styles that they stock, including the aromatherapy oils and accessories.

I am already dreaming of going back!
