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.
