About The Founder
KAREN IRVINE - EDITOR & FOOD TOUR GUIDE
Karen Irvine started the food tours in 2018, and has been rocking it ever since! The food tour was conceived as a fun project, and has evolved into the most fun 'job' she has ever had! Karen enjoys meeting locals and tourists alike, and showing them what Peterborough Ontario has to offer. It's amazing how many people who live here don't know the history of why Peterborough has become what it is today!
The idea of a Lifestyle Magazine started late 2018 as a vehicle to showcase the Kawarthas being a Food Destination. As we are sure you know, it has evolved into so much more!
