CANADA 150: FEAST – Recipes and Stories From A Canadian Road Trip

  • Thursday, May 11, 2017
    6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In our second series of Canadian cuisine classes we will be celebrating what makes Canadian food unique and special as we move towards Canada’s 150th birthday celebration.

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: a road trip across the entire country to experience and write about Canada’s food, culture, and wealth of compelling characters. 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. A copy of the book FEAST is included in registration to this event.

Meet The Guest Authors: Lindsay Anderson & Dana VanVeller

Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller are Vancouver-based writers, adventurers, wanderlusts, and co-creators of FEAST: An Edible Road Trip.  They first met at a music festival in Kelowna, immediately bonding around the glow of the fire and burning marshmallows. Fast friends, they were united by our desires to seek meaningful work, and a mutual love of food, dance parties, and adventure.  LIndsay and Dana will be in attendance for tonight’s event.
