A look at the history and culture of food, wine, and culinary culture in southern Ontario's Niagara region.

The Niagara region has a unique culinary history and tradition. From its mild microclimate that supports the cultivation of tender fruits -- peaches, cherries, and more -- to its role as the birthplace of the Canadian wine industry and home to a new generation of trailblazing chefs and restaurateurs, the Niagara region boasts a food and wine heritage that rivals any in North America. Niagara food writer, advocate, and activist Tiffany Mayer provides a thoughtful look at the many elements of Niagara's culinary past and present, including the planting of the first orchards and vineyards, the rise and fall of the local canning industry, the artisans responsible for crafting the region's most beloved food products, and the Greenbelt Act, which protects more than a million acres of the area's most precious agricultural land.

Award-winning journalist Tiffany Mayer runs Eating Niagara, a blog devoted to local food and agriculture in Ontario's Niagara Region. For nearly a decade Mayer worked as a daily news and freelance reporter, covering agriculture and culinary topics for a range of publications, including the St. Catharines Standard. Mayer also founded the Garden of Eating-Niagara, a non-profit that harvests fruit for social agencies in the region. She lives in St. Catharines, Ontario.
