New Culinary Program Debuts at Adventure Canada – Food Day Canada Joins Newfoundland Circumnavigation

Adventure Canada’s Taste of Place

Learning through food, culture, music, arts, and science have long been at the core of Adventure Canada expeditions.

We are proud to introduce Taste of Place, a new onboard culinary program working to heighten travellers’ food experience with onshore and onboard events, presentations, meals, and celebrations that showcase unique Canadian flavours and the people that supply and create them.

Taste of Place is about celebrating the deep roots and cultural significance of food traditions around the world. “Food is inextricable from culture, community, and economy,” says Adventure Canada CEO Cedar Swan, “and showcasing local food is one of the best ways to celebrate these places.”


– Enhance expedition experiences through food
– Collaborate with leading food organizations and local innovators
– Integrate sustainable procurement, preparation and disposal of food supplies in Adventure Canada’s operations at sea and on land

Taste of Place operates within and draws attention to a larger context of large-scale global issues like climate change, food security, and Indigenous food sovereignty. Adventure Canada invests in these issues through programs like Taste of Place, our Discovery Fund, and the work of our valued partners.

Food Day Canada

Adventure Canada is proud to announce Food Day Canada as the latest partner aboard Newfoundland Circumnavigation 2019!

Food Day Canada / Journée des terroirs, is a massive, chef-led national celebration of local food, celebrated the August long weekend. Although FDC began as a response to the 2003 beef crisis, it evolved quickly as it became clear that, at that time of year, there is locally-harvested, fabulous food in every, single region of Canada. It is indeed Canada’s day to pick, serve and eat Canadian! It’s an opportunity for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers, our chefs and researchers, and, above all, our home cooks.
