Taste Detours are food and drink tasting tours with a heritage twist.
Our moveable feasts give you a little behind-the-scenes information on the people and places we visit. Stories that unite around food and showcase our deep and flavourful roots. We feed our own love of exploration and curiosity by digging into the connections found within Wellington County, and help you reconnect with each other over food.
Our team is comprised of Lynn Broughton in collaboration with Taste Detours stellar partner businesses. Like any good community, it’s those in the background – the chefs, the staff, owners, farmers, and brewers – that make things tick. Come for a tour and see why they choose to eat, live, work and play in their respective towns.
Lynn is a devotee of all things locally-flavoured, loves a good story, and knows that everyone has one. She has the deepest respect for growers and makers from all walks of life, a hunger for both urbanism and farm fields, and an appetite that just won’t quit. She came to live within Wellington County in 1984 after living a rich childhood of travel and residency throughout Canada, Europe, and Africa. Her Mum was a pioneer foodie, whose own table exposed her to a world of cooking and taste, but she discovered the truly unifying power of food working within various restaurant cultures since she was a teenager. She then spent 14 years at the Downtown Guelph Business Association where she promoted the downtown core businesses, produced food and cultural events and directed marketing and communications.
A self-professed Gastronaut, Lynn has planted herself in Guelph where she has 27 years of experience with food, events, arts & culture, and tourism. She is a certified Food Tour Professional who is sweet on Wellington County and all its flavour. Let Lynn put the regional taste experience into context for you.
