The “Battle of the Butter Tarts” hit full ooey gooey glory with articles in The Globe and Mail, The Star and Hamilton Spectator. The Kawarthas Northumberland Butter Tart Tour was also featured in segments on Radio Canada and the CBC, and was profiled in Canadian Living by writer Tim Johnson (pictured above interviewing a butter tart baker). No wonder, the Tour earned a rating as one of the top newsmakers of the year by Maclean’s magazine, while also winning four awards at the Ontario Tourism Summit.
