about

Two friends. Five months. One car. Ten provinces. Three territories. Seven islands. Eight ferries. Two flights. One 48-hour train ride. And only one call to CAA. The result: over 100 incredible Canadian recipes from coast to coast and the Great White North.

In the midst of a camping trip in Squamish, British Columbia, Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller decided that the summer of 2013 might be the right time for an adventure. And they knew what they wanted that adventure to be: a road trip across the entire country, with the purpose of writing about Canada's food, culture, and wealth of compelling characters and their stories.
     37,000 kilometres later, and toting a "Best Culinary Travel Blog" award from Saveur magazine, Lindsay and Dana have brought together stories, photographs and recipes from across Canada in Feast: Recipes and Stories from a Canadian Road Trip. The authors write about their experiences of trying whale blubber in Nunavut, tying a GoPro to a fishing line in Newfoundland to get a shot of the Atlantic Ocean's "cod highway," and much more.
     More than 80 contributors--including farmers, grandmothers, First Nations elders, and acclaimed chefs--have shared over 90 of their most beloved regional recipes, with Lindsay and Dana contributing some of their own favourites too. You'll find recipes for all courses from Barley Pancakes, Yukon Cinnamon Buns, and Bannock to Spot Prawn Ceviche, Bison Sausage Rolls, Haida Gwaii Halibut and Maritime Lobster Rolls; and also recipes for preserves, pickles and sauces, and a whole chapter devoted to drinks.
     Feast is a stunning representation of the diversity and complexity of Canada through its many favourite foods. The combination of Lindsay and Dana's capitivating journey with easy-to-follow recipes makes the book just as pleasurable to read as it is to cook from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feast your eyes The cover, designed by renowned C.S. Richardson, was my hook in. The vintage travel poster look fits perfectly with the food road trip theme. This is a book to savour with eyes, food photos styled simply and enticingly. The authors' adventures are entertaining. Their curiosity and willingness to wander makes for great storytelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining all around I love the stories and anecdotes in this book. The authors have a great sense of humour and I loved reading about their cross country adventures, both to places I've been and those I haven't. Have tried a handful of recipes and they've all been delicious, if not a bit time consuming. It's become my new coffee table book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and inspiring! I am really enjoying the stories, all presented in an engaging style. The recipes are not arranged coast-to-coast, but by meal type - which is perfect. I've tried several already, and they have been hits. I did substitute beef for reindeer, though!
