Janet’s passion for fine food and fine mustard led her to the creation of Mrs. McGarrigle’s! Whether it’s a cooking class, Friday night dinner, or even on culinary excursion to Italy – Janet is usually found in the kitchen!
Though humble in its beginnings – manufacturing condiments in the basement of one of Ottawa’s hostels after-hours – Mrs. McGarrigle’s has morphed into a stylish gourmet food, fine kitchenware and home décor retailer – a unique epicurean destination in the National Capital area and an undeniable lure for those who enjoy fine cooking, fine dining and fine living.
As the business itself, the store – located in historic and picturesque Merrickville, Ontario – has expanded again and again. Now occupying 3,000 square feet in what was originally an 1888 general store, it not only accommodates the retail business, but also serves as premises for the mustard and condiment manufacturing operation as well as a respected cooking school. Chefs from the Ottawa area as well as food writers and Ontario wine producers demonstrate their skill and products, assisting customers in their food and beverage preparation and appreciation.
