A few of our team members here at White Oaks have been lucky enough to enjoy holidays with resorts offering Butler Service. We’ve all raved about what an amazing treat it was upon our return and we started to seriously consider how to incorporate Butler service at White Oaks. What would that look like?

The Chef’s Garden

For many restaurants, fresh ingredients are something much talked about, but end up being more mythological than real when the food is finally served. Quite the opposite at LIV Restaurant, where Executive Chef Michael Price has held firm on his philosophy that fresh local ingredients are a key component to any gourmet meal.

Niagara’s Bounty

I went to the grocery store the other day and had my attitude adjusted. Thought I’d pick up a bag of milk – it was $16.00 for three liters. Yup. And the bottle of ketchup I looked at was $14.99 – no kidding. And three, tiny, pale triangles of under-ripe watermelon on a Styrofoam tray? A stunning $3.99. Where was [...]

Sounds of Summer

The Sounds of Summer are alive and well in Niagara this year…perhaps even a little bit louder than usual. After a big kick-off that saw the Tragically Hip playing a Canada Day concert in Niagara-on-the-Lake to a crowd of over 30,000 people, Summer 2012 shows no signs of letting up on live music.
