Welcome to Cod Sounds, a homegrown company dedicated to keeping the cultural food of this province on our plates for generations to come.

Cod Sounds was created to introduce you to a way of life that is not yet lost here in Newfoundland and Labrador where the sharing of skills, knowledge and food will see us into our future. This is a where we embrace old techniques, rediscover lost traditions and create new ones along the way.

 

A note from Lori:

I want to introduce you to Newfoundland & Labrador, where people, place and food culture run strong and deep.  A place where we are looking ahead at the wild foods from the land and sea and realizing that they have only begun to scratch the surface of possibilities. 

 Our food-ways are stories, born out of necessity and growing to be told. These stories are to be shared, they embrace the past, hold strong in the present, and will grow into future. 

 The rich history of hunting, fishing, trapping and gathering is something that I look forward to sharing with you.

Our History


 

Everywhere you go in Newfoundland, you’ll find reminders that this was once a place where entire communities were sustained by cod from an abundant sea. But as our fishermen sent away enough salt cod to feed the entire world, they always cherished the parts no one else wanted: the cod heads, the tongues and the sounds.

To most, the cod sound is simply the air bladder that keeps a cod afloat. But to us—and the adventurous few—this delicious treasure tells the story of a people who had the ingenuity to find nourishment in the overlooked, the unwanted and the left behind.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES


Spend a day living off the land with Lori. She will show you some of her favourite spots for foraging — and then the best place to enjoy a beachside lunch made over an open fire.


Lori McCarthy has been picking wild edibles since a young child and has spent the recent years foraging for some of this city’s top restaurants. Walk with her through our woods and onto our beaches in search of the amazing bounty that our province has to offer. When you are finished you will sit around, light the fire and experience a Newfoundland boil-up.

COOKERY & workshops


Whether you are a well-seasoned cook or a food enthusiast, we all continue to learn and we are sure we have a workshop to inspire you. Loris core values embrace locally sourced regional cuisine and this is reflected in her food experiences and her workshops.

From rabbit ravioli to charcuterie and butchery, learning to cook together and sharing stories will leave you with a new outlook on the cuisine of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The workshops are hands-on and explore our wild foods from the land and sea and the produce from our farmers. These ingredients are then weaved into our dishes and prepared with both a traditional and modern approach.
