Through the steam rising off slabs of all-you-can-eat garlic home loaf, families all across Canada sit down to feast on East Side Mario's heaping plates of classic Italian fare. The chain's chefs ladle spicy arrabbiata, rich alfredo, and meaty bolognese sauces across foundations of toothsome De Cecco pasta, which they import from Italy to ensure each entree has an authentic jet-lagged flavour. They also slide cheesy baked pastas and hand-pressed pizzas into ovens, toast up loaded sandwiches, and dress crisp salads in their signature dressing. East Side Mario's strives to make every meal a pleasant, relaxing experience. It helps eliminate potential ordering jitters by designating vegetarian and spicy items on the menu for diners with dietary restrictions, and taps into guests' joy reserves with a selection of signature cocktails, spiked lemonades, and ice-cream shakes.

It’s hard to know where to look first upon walking into one of Jungle Jim’s two-dozen locations. Nearly every inch of wall space overflows with such safari-themed accoutrements as palm fronts, bamboo poles, colored lights, and a tiki bar. Although the restaurant aims to transport families to an exotic tropical wonderland, the huge menu is stuffed with familiar favorites designed to appeal to nearly every kind of diner. Chicken panini wraps and zesty buffalo wings swing quickly from the kitchen, but for more ceremonious occasions there are also a number of upscale, steakhouse-style options. A favorite is the St. Louis-style Rhino Ribs, a heft half-rack made sticky with honey garlic or barbecue sauce. Alongside such decadence, the special Slim Jim menu showcases entrees with 550 calories or fewer, such as pan-seared tiger shrimp and grilled chicken salad. Kids can dig into smaller portions on their own menu—which, once they’ve decided between alfredo pasta and animal-shaped chicken nuggets, they can fold into a tiki-style mask.

Built in 1928, the renovated passenger car that now serves as Tatamagouche Railway Dining Car whisked travellers to and fro on the Canadian National Railway. These days, it stays stationary while taste buds do all the travelling during lunches and dinners every summer and autumn. The kitchen specializes in steak and seafood entrees?such as lemon-dill salmon?that complement the veggies and edible, pesticide-free flowers grown in the restaurant's private garden. The dining car is part of the Train Station Inn at the 19th-century Tatamagouche Station, whose other railways cars now serve as bed-and-breakfast suites.

It's tough to make a kitchen both chef- and kid-friendly, but President's Choice Cooking School has taken on the challenge. Its curriculum has classes for adults, teens, and children, all of which allow for hands-on food prep. Young students learn the life skill of cooking, preparing foods ranging from healthy meals to baked desserts. Adults, on the other hand, take courses that teach more complex skills, such as how to make Greek dinners and homemade ravioli. After baking classes, students can take their culinary creations home for later snacking?other classes always culminate in a group tasting.
