What is FEAST?
Here’s the answer Dana and Lindsay wrote on their award-winning blog:
FEAST: An Edible Road Trip is the result of months of strategic planning, hundreds of cups of tea, and wild visionary indulgence. It is a project dedicated to exploring Canada, highlighting incredible regional food, and meeting and featuring interesting characters and organizations. Inspiration for this project arose when, in casually asking friends what they consider to be typically Canadian foods, few answers were given beyond Kraft Dinner, poutine, Nanaimo Bars, and butter tarts. While fully enamoured with the latter three, we knew there was so much more to it, and were intrigued that Canadian cuisine seemed so lacking in identity. We decided to combine our passions for writing, traveling, and eating into a unique adventure, one that will take us across the country in search of stories about Canadian food, with an aim of showing its unique character and proving just how much we have to celebrate.
