About Food & Dining

Irie Island | Behind the Food

If you’re craving something exotic to eat on a summer’s day, cruise over to Irie Island, Stark County’s sole (and soulful) Jamaican restaurant. Melissa Bailey will take care of you.

The Irish Exchange | Behind the Food

A neighborhood pub in business since 1991, The Irish Exchange recently took the step of adding some bona fide Irish cuisine to its menu of familiar bar-food favorites.

Summer eats & treats

Milk & Honey Ice Cream in Canton is a one-stop shop for a tasty meal, delicious dessert and candies to go. Get yourself one of these banana splits, complete with a cherry on top. Find Milk & Honey on Facebook.

Summer Snacks

These fun breakfast pops are essentially a frozen smoothie on a stick. Creamy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, with a subtle sweetness that comes mostly from the fruit itself, they are a playfully cool way to start the day.

Test Kitchen: Chicken & guacamole enchiladas

Happy Cinco de Mayo month! Let’s make enchiladas. I have cooked enchiladas once before (the salsa verde variety, not the red-sauce kind), but I opted for this recipe because it also incorporates guacamole, which is on the short list of my favorite foods.

Heggy’s Nut Shop | Behind the Food

Eric Lynn was a counter clerk 26 years ago when he started working at Heggy’s Nut Shop. Today, he is president of the Canton standby, which has been serving coneys, buttered french fries and hot fudge sundaes from its lunch counter since 1950.

Downtown lunch

Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch or just a tasty treat, Hazel & Rye Artisan Baking Company in downtown Canton has tons to choose from. Stop in for a fresh wrap, $6.95, and a delectable dessert.
