Lori McCarthy is dedicated to the cultural foods of Newfoundland and Labrador through her company Cod Sounds and the Livyers Cultural Alliance.
Her core values embrace locally sourced regional cuisine and wild foods from the land and sea; this is reflected in her food experiences and workshops.
Lori has been listed as a hidden gem in National Geographic, has been written up in Costal Living as one of the 8 great excursions in North America. The Telegraph speaks about her in an article about the most unlikely culinary destinations and check out what the National Post has to say.
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, wild game and long fall days on fertile berry grounds that shaped her heart—and the heart of her business.
Her passion for the food of this province has only grown over the years. And now it’s something she looks forward to sharing with you.
