Meet Lori McCarthy
Lori McCarthy is dedicated to preserving the cultural food of Newfoundland and Labrador through her company Cod Sounds and the Livyers Cultural Alliance. Her core values embrace locally sourced regional cuisine and this is reflected in her food experiences and through her cooking school at The Compton House Inn.
She sits on the Food Policy Council of St. John's and is the recipient of the Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Innovator award for 2017 and the Tourism Discovery award from the City of St. John's.
As a child, Lori spent countless hours watching her mom make bread and preserve the season’s harvest for the winter. It’s her childhood memories of beach boil-ups and long fall days on fertile berry grounds that shaped her heart—and the heart of her business.
Her passion for the traditional foods of this province has only grown over the years. And now it’s something she looks forward to sharing with you.
