In 2016, the co-host of Rogers Hometown Hockey, Tara Slone toured Canada looking for Canada’s most compelling hockey stories. As much as Tara has a passion for all things sticks, blades and pucks, she also has a passion for all things sweet, savoury and delicious. So as she traveled from coast to coast, she sent us her favourite food finds in each Canadian town. Find all her favourite spots from 2017, and check back with us soon to see where (and what) she’s eating for the 2017/18 Hometown Hockey tour!
Stop 24: Hamilton, ON
For the final stop on the tour, my partner in crime (social media manager Storie Serres) and I found the perfect marriage of our culinary tastes, Butcher and The Vegan. Storie is a longtime vegan, and I am a forever carnivore. I went for the delicate and lovely lake trout, pan seared and served with fingerling potatoes, wilted kale and rapini, and arugula. This is a Hamilton fave for good reason.
