Feast: Recipes and Stories from a Canadian Road Trip Read Online Free - 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 in Squamish, British Columbia, Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller decided that the summer of 2013 might be the right time for an adventure. And they knew what they wanted that adventure to be: 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 kilometres 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 in Feast: Recipes and Stories from a Canadian Road Trip. 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.
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 own favourites too. You'll find recipes for all courses from Barley Pancakes, Yukon Cinnamon Buns, and Bannock to Spot Prawn Ceviche, Bison Sausage Rolls, Haida Gwaii Halibut and Maritime Lobster Rolls; and also recipes for preserves, pickles and sauces, and a whole chapter devoted to drinks.
Feast is a stunning representation of the diversity and complexity of Canada through its many favourite foods. The combination of Lindsay and Dana's capitivating journey with easy-to-follow recipes makes the book just as pleasurable to read as it is to cook from.

I was surprised to see a huge display of these at my Chapters in the Canada 150 stuff section. Then after reading this I thought it makes sense as this is really less of a cookbook and more of a road trip across Canada with stunning photos book. It is a beautiful book which I suspect will end up...

Love this book - such a brilliant addition to the Canadian culinary world. I wish I'd had the idea first but hats off to Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller for having the idea and then the gumption to follow through on this epic road trip around Canada, writing about food all over this vast, bea...

Many people are waiting for this book at the library so I did not have much time with it to try recipes but wrote out ones that are musts. I did read through the text as to the girls adventure and it seemed quite incredible. Makes me want to become a foodie.

Gorgeous book of Canadian food and heritage. Definitely more geared toward foodies - buying in hopes Aaron will make us every recipe in it (except the hare sorry cannot eat rabbits 🐰)

Really enjoyed this although some of the ingredients in the recipes are rather difficult to find. I may try the spruce tip pesto next spring, though! There could easily be a sequel to this.
