“Ontario Culinary Tourism Experience Award — From Tree to Table (Ottercreek Woodworks) The Tree-to-Table Experience by Ottercreek Woodworks is truly one of a kind. Guests enjoy a guided walk inside the Carolinian Forest with woodworker Dave Schonberger before heading into his workshop to create their own live-edge charcuterie board. After, they enjoy local charcuterie and cheeses while socializing around a massive pine table and reflecting on all they’ve learned. There is nothing else like it!”
