Adventure Canada is leading an industry-wide local food expedition movement with the launch of Taste of Place, an immersive culinary program on its Newfoundland Circumnavigation, sailing October 2019 and June 2020. This program will bring travellers closer to their food sources and highlight the Atlantic province’s deep connection between land and plate.
The 11-day, 10-night excursion, named a Canadian Signature Experience by Destination Canada in March 2019, showcases the stunning landscape, varied wildlife, and rich and warm culture of Newfoundland. With a focus on local dishes—think Partridge berry tarts, mustard pickle, cod tongues, Labrador Arctic char chowder, flipper pie—Taste of Place will provide an unmatched local experience for both hosts and guests, featuring onboard and onshore presentations, celebrations, and original menus designed and supplied by Canadian chefs, farmers, fishers, and culinary leaders.
“Food is inextricable from culture, community, and economy—and showcasing local food is one of the best ways to celebrate these places,” says Cedar Swan, Adventure Canada’s CEO. “The places we’ve been visiting for over three decades are communities that have become like family—with unique stories, rich relationships, and challenges. Our priority is to responsibly deliver exceptional travel experiences and endeavour to contribute to positive change.”
Taste of Place launches on the next Newfoundland Circumnavigation voyages, sailing from October 2 to October 12, 2019 and June 26 to July 6, 2020
