For weeks we’ve been receiving comments and suggestions — some of them quite pointed — regarding our quest to find the best butter tarts in Muskoka.
Now it’s time to see how they stack up.
On Friday, July 6, half a dozen of the best bakers in Muskoka will be gathering at James Bartleman Island Park in Port Carling for the Muskoka Life Butter Tart Festival. And best of all, you’ll get a chance to taste their wares.
Here’s how it works:
From 1 to 3 p.m., each baker will have a tray of tarts available. For a donation of $5, you’ll receive two tickets, each one good for one tart. Give your ticket to your preferred bakers, taste their wares, and vote for your favourite.
We’ll also have a team of judges led by food writer Pamela Steel, who will be tasting all the tarts.
All proceeds from the tart tickets will go to charity: the Muskoka Lakes Museum, and the Children’s Foundation of Muskoka will share the proceeds.
