Black Creek Pioneer village, Toronto: 3 reviews and 3 photos

 
 

<b>Black Creek Pioneer Village</b> was my first pioneer village and I do hope to succeed in explaining this without sounding arrogant or offensive... for an Italian the 1860's life which here is re-created isn't so ancient history like in Canada or in the States where is the beginning of the settlement and as I live in the house which belonged to a granparent, you can still find in it something of this same period... so in spite I have always enjoyed similar heritage projects and their costumed staff, I couldn't avoid thinking that I could almost turn my house in a pioneer village with an entrance ticket :-P... from this a little bit irriverent thought the reason why I have always called any of these places a pioneer village ;-)... but I honestly enjoy them and it was the first of a series during my future trips overseas and this time I enjoyed for sure the Thanksgiving menu I could eat in the restaurant of the village, also plunged in the atmosphere of the 19th century... and here are my courses: butternut squash and fennel soup with sour cream and chives, grilled pepper and zucchini salad with vinaigrette, traditional roast ontario turkey served with corn stuffing and gravy, vichy carrots, mixed string beans, roasted chateau potatoes and cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie with whipped cream and coffee... I'm plunging back to a gastronomic tour... lol...
in this pic <b>Roblin's Mill</b> considered the focal point of the village and a couple of other pics in the travelogue...
