Recipe Revival

Recipe Revival Celebrating our heritage through foodcollection of recipe cards

Kawartha Lakes has a rich history influenced by the region’s Indigenous heritage, immigration patterns, agricultural and industrial heritage, and natural assets. Around these themes, there are many unique and memorable food stories worth sharing with locals and visitors alike. We would like to showcase the details of the region’s history and how it has influenced local food and drink through Recipe Revival.

Using recipes from the City of Kawartha Lakes archives, as well as recipes submitted by the community, we will not only celebrate the exceptional heritage behind the food, but perhaps have a new tasty treat to try!

Whether you've called Kawartha Lakes home for many years or you have just joined one of our communities- the heritage, traditions and recipes that you have brought with you adds flavour to our already colourful table.

Do you have a recipe with a unique story to share? Submit your recipe to be included in the Recipe Revival collection.
