This past weekend, Hitch and I, along with several of our friends attended the Roots, Rants, & Roars food festival! It’s an annual event that’s held in Elliston, NL, takes place over two days, features top-notch chefs from across Canada, and highlights all kinds of awesome music. Here are some pics! (Be prepared for your mouth to water.)
We started our drive out of town with a gorgeous rainbow:
We stayed in nearby Bonavista, in a family-friend’s house, which had the most awesome variety of wallpaper that has ever existed. Retro and wicked:
Friday night of the festival is the “King of Cod” – all the chefs prepare cod in different ways. My favourites were the panfried cod by Oppidan, and the cod donut by The Bonavista Institute:
Saturday-daytime features a food hike. The hike is a lovely walk through the scenic town of Maberly, which includes many food stops along the way:
Look! It’s Chuck Hughes and Danny Smiles!!
And the beautiful scenery along the way:
Saturday night is “The Roast”. More delicious food and wine pairings…
What’s better than Turduckin? Turbeefin!
Happy & Full:
On our way back, we stopped into Two Whales Cafe for lunch. So good! I had to buy the t-shirt.
Such a fabulous weekend! I think I need to go on a diet now…
