Taste: 4☀️ | Atmosphere: 2☀️ | Value: 5☀️
When you think of Thunder Bay, you probably think of frozen lakes or the Sleeping Giant (in the background of the pic!) but they’re also known for a local delicacy called “Persian”. It’s basically like a sweet bun with cinnamon with more eggs in the batter and covered in thick mystery berry flavoured jam...plus there’s a cool history with them!
📜The brief history actually has nothing to do with the Persian Empire but rather the notable meeting in the 1940’s of the baker Art Bennett, who’s legacy still lives on as #thepersianman & John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing, who was an American WW1 General. They hit it off and the baker decided to name his newest sweet creation “Persian”
Don’t let the pink frosting fool you, it’s not that sugary and the colouring comes from local berries (exact recipe literally buried underground)!! ⚰️
It’s like eating a piece of history🤓 ...a deliciously sweet, cinnamon-y, gooey, piece of history!!
Do you know of any other foods that are unique to Ontario? ☃️
Another view from the Best Western Plus hotel, this time overlooking the Nepean point lookout. I’m usually shooting from the lookout areas while trying to capture the BWPlus hotel. These rooms have some amazing views, probably some of the top view in the city. What do you think? #outaouaisfun#ottawa#ontariosfinest#canoncanada#cangeotravel
