Feast: Recipes and Stories from a Canadian Road Trip $35 CAD
Two friends. Five months. One car. Ten provinces. Three territories. Seven islands. Eight ferries. Two flights. One 48-hour train ride. And only one call to CAA. The result: over 100 incredible Canadian recipes from coast to coast and the Great White North.
In the midst of a camping trip, Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller decided to go on an adventure during the summer of 2013. It was a road trip across the entire country, with the purpose of writing about Canada's food, culture, and wealth of compelling characters and their stories.
37,000 kilometers later, and toting a "Best Culinary Travel Blog" award from Saveur magazine, Lindsay and Dana have brought together stories, photographs, and recipes from across Canada. The authors write about their experiences of trying whale blubber in Nunavut, tying a GoPro to a fishing line in Newfoundland to get a shot of the Atlantic Ocean's "cod highway," and much more.
Feast is a stunning representation of the diversity and complexity of Canada through its many favourite foods. The combination of Lindsay and Dana's captivating journey with easy-to-follow recipes makes the book just as pleasurable to read as it is to cook from.
More than 80 contributors--including farmers, grandmothers, First Nations elders, and acclaimed chefs--have shared over 90 of their most beloved regional recipes, with Lindsay and Dana contributing some of their favourites too.
Originally hailing from Northern B.C. and Southern Ontario respectively, Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller first met around an Okanagan campfire in 2011. They became fast friends and began planning Feast just one year later. Avid cooks, writers, and photographers, this storytelling project allowed them to highlight Canada's vibrant and varied food culture.
