MY FOOD HIKE
We had such an awesome time in September with My Food Hike,
we thought we'd do it again, but this time in the snow!!
Newfoundland has so many amazing winter activities, this winter get out and enjoy them with a My Food Hike Winter Picnic
Each year on the third weekend in September, Elliston, Newfoundland, the root cellar capital of the world becomes the backdrop for a two-day celebration of Newfoundland & Labrador Food, Culture, Land & Sea.
This past September we did something a little different, you created your own Food Hike. Now, this winter we invite you to get out and experience Newfoundland with a My Food Hike Winter Picnic.
Roots, Rants and Roars is such a unique event, it's hard to capture the full experience in words. We've had some amazing bloggers attend and these are a few of our favorites.
Imagine a food festival where you meander along the coastline sampling dishes from famous chefs and drinking wine. Musicians play music while you lingered by the ocean with a full belly and happy heart and you finish your afternoon with desserts in a playground. Well, dreams really do come true, and it happens every year in Elliston, Newfoundland and Labrador.
We were greeted at the festival grounds with a glass of champagne and a cheese board by Five Brothers Artisan Cheese, complimented by homemade pickles from The Jewish Deli.
The weekend kicks off Friday night with the Cod Wars, where renowned chefs across the island compete for the best cod dish and the title 'King of the Cod.'
When the festival contacted me to be their event photographer, I was available! And absolutely stoked to do it! So of course, I said “Yes!”
Here is an intimate look through my lens at this incredible two day gathering of amazing chefs, musicians and wonderful humans who came together in Elliston, Newfoundland for a scoff and a time.
