Food, Culture, Place with Lori McCarthy — WildFed Podcast #116
Listen now
One of our favorite repeat guests, Lori McCarthy, is back today to talk about her new book, Food, Culture, Place: Stories, Traditions, and Recipes of Newfoundland. Lori is, of course, from Newfoundland, Canada — which, by the way, should not be confused with the rest of Canada — as it really is its own place entirely, having only become a Canadian province in 1949! With a timezone 30 minutes ahead of Eastern Standard, they really do march to the beat of their own drum, and speak a dialect all their own. Of all the places we've visited in the US and Canada, nowhere is the food culture still as intimately tied to the landscape as it is there. Lori’s new book, while we'd categorize it as a cookbook, is also a deep dive into the foodways and cultural heritage of the island they call “The Rock”, which is exemplified in the title — Food, Culture, Place. Lori and Daniel have always had a great rapport, so this interview is full of stories, laughs, and of course, interesting anecdotes from the world of wild foods. Oh, one more thing, we spoke with Lori this morning, and there’s been some shipping delays that have postponed the official launch of her book, but she’ll have them very soon. She wanted us to let you know, if you want to pre-order a copy you can do that on Amazon, or by emailing her directly at She’ll get one out to you as soon as they arrive. In the meantime, enjoy the very unique insights, stories, and of course, accent of the one and only, Lori McCarthy. View full show notes, including links to resources from this episode here:
