There’s no need to travel across Ontario to find the best butter tart this fall: all the best bakers specializing in the iconic Canadian treat are getting together under one roof.
Kawarthas Butter Tart Taste-Off takes place in downtown Port Hope this year on September 23, alongside Cultivate: A Festival Of Food And Drink.
Entry is free to the annual event and offers the chance to watch bakers from across the province face-off in four categories including Best 100 Mile Butter Tart (featuring local ingredients), Best Gluten-Free Butter Tart, Best Arts in Tarts (for the most creative) and Best Classic Butter Tart.
Aside from the bake-off, this festival will see butter tarts from across Ontario’s Butter Tart Tour for sale all in one spot, along with artisans, food vendors and activities.
