June 30, 2019 Smoked Capelin, Salt Sounds & Seal-Taste of Island Living

150.00

With the winter over and the larder low, the Spring of the year presents itself with an abundance of wild edibles from the land and sea.

In this workshop we are going to introduce you to the food culture of this province that sustained generations alongside the wild foraging of Spring. A taste of the old and the new in one.

We’ll head across the beach for a spring forage and a taste of all that the seashore presents itself with, then we’ll head back to the Cod Sounds Camp HQ for a cuppa wild tea.

You’ll join me in a taste of seal, smoking capelin and salting cod sounds on the fish flakes before we sit around the fire and enjoy a meal and sharing with you a true taste of this island.

When the fire is out and the stories are told you will leave with a deep understanding of how for generations we have sustained ourselves on this land.

One of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most treasured traditions is The Boil-Up. It simply means a spot of lunch and a cuppa tea boiled up over a fire and we look forward to sharing one with you.

We'll get the fire going, and cook up a taste of wild Newfoundland and Labrador.
