Mouthful---credit-FEAST-2FEAST: THREE UNIQUE DINING EXPERIENCES FROM CANADA’S FAR WEST 

Travelling through Canada in search of interesting food stories has landed us in many crazy situations: seven versions of the Nanaimo Bar in one sitting, cocktails that possessed an actual human toe and attempting to finish a cinnamon bun the size of a dinner plate. Some of our favourite food stories, however, have us completely dumbfounded at the skill of the chefs, care for quality ingredients and their stunning locations. Here are three unforgettable dining experiences.

Joy Road Catering Alfreso Dinners at God’s Mountain (Penticton, B.C.)

If you have the opportunity to eat a dinner by Joy Road Catering, it will be one of those rare, remember-it-for-life type meals. Joy Road is all about “Cuisine du Terroir,” meaning cuisine particular to the area in which it is grown and eaten. Seasonal foods of the Okanagan form the basis of their culinary philosophy – not what they’re comfortable or familiar with, but the high-quality ingredients available to them from local producers with whom they have personal relationships. Dinners at God’s Mountain are served with wine pairings at each course, while seated at a long table overlooking the sparkling Skaha Lake. They happen Thursday and Sunday evenings throughout the summer, cost $99 and sell out FAST.

Keenawii’s Kitchen (Skidegate, B.C.)

We joined Chef Roberta Olsen for one of her iconic dinners from her home kitchen overlooking the ocean. Roberta cooks with ingredients collected from the ocean, forests and farmers’ markets on the island. She describes her work simply as “cooking what she grew up eating” and all the courses will amount to you eating freshly caught seafood at least 15 different ways. At $55 and BYOB, this meal is as much a cultural experience as it is an appetite satisfier. You won’t be able to find an email address or website for her: simply call (250) 559-8347 or turn right at the rainbow painted rock.

Klondike Kate’s (Dawson City, Yukon)

Ask anyone in Dawson City where you should eat, and they will probably respond, “Klondike Kate’s.” Kate’s was established in the early ’90s in a restored gold rush-era building. It was named for a famous and vivacious dancer, dubbed “Klondike Kate,” or “Queen of the Gold Rush,” in Dawson at the turn of the 20th century. It’s a BBQ-style restaurant full of character, featuring remarkable local ingredients including birch syrup, spruce tips and wild mushrooms foraged by the chef himself. Their menu is eclectic and truly northern. Plus, being there means you’re in Dawson City, which might just be the coolest place in Canada.

A warm goodbye to Emily Whyte, we welcome the food bloggers of FEAST during their cross-Canada culinary journey. Make this more of a staple at www.edibleroadtrip.com as they share their continuing adventures. Check out the perks for keeping FEAST on the road! (@feast_on)
