ITHINK YOU WILL indeed find our inaugural food issue delicious. It’s a feast for the senses – body, mind and spirit – starting with the delectable dish featured on our cover, photographed by John Cullen. It was created and served up by the Canadian celebrity chef Todd Perrin, co-founder of Mallard Cottage, in Quidi Vidi, NL ( mallard cottage.ca).
You can read about how this dinner came to be at the end of an epic journey from Canada’s coast to coast to coast, including our North. Read all about it in Alyssa Schwartz’s story, “Fire & Ice” (page 78). Was it a heritage moment? For shining a light on what Canadian cuisine is and means today, we say yes. Celebrate our country’s acclaimed and diverse culinary culture and what food means to your health and your life with us. That includes enjoying Perrin’s elevated take on the quintessential lobster supper, cooked with true patriot love on the Rock.
Thanks for the recipes, Chef.
