Margaret Swaine

A keen traveller (117 countries checked off and counting) and prolific travel writer, Toronto’s Margaret Swaine also pens the weekly culinary travel column “Forks & the Road” for the National Post newspaper and the bi-monthly “Global Gourmet” column for Travel Industry TODAY. Clearly an expert in the finer things in life, she’s also a spa columnist, a wine expert and a restaurant critic.

Dining adventures such as foie gras-covered whole black truffles at three-star-Michelin Auberge de L’Ill in Alsace, seal stew on Newfoundland’s Fogo Island, and witchetty grub soup in Kakadu, Australia. Drinking Louis XIII Cognac in the cellars of Remy Martin, lively Grüner Veltliner along the Danube in Austria and First Growth Bordeaux while dining at Mouton Rothschild…”
