Who hasn't come home from a trip and begun to tell of all the tales of their travels far and near, and not ended the story by telling everyone of the little pub or café off the beaten trail where they found the best meal they've ever eaten? I still remember visiting Croatia as a small girl with my family and visiting the best bakery I've ever been to and the vanilla squares that floated off my plate and into my mouth! Now, that was a long time ago but it's funny how food memories are some of the strongest.
Now here's your chance to make some great memories.
Bay Roberts' 3rd Annual Songs, Stages and Seafood Festival June 11-14
Some of the best chefs that this part of Newfoundland has to offer, come together and make magic.
The Town of Bay Roberts puts on a moving feast that has become more popular with each passing year. It takes place in different venues across the town.
Some of the events taking place this year will be:
- Small Plate Evening with Live Traditional Music June 12 7:00 p.m.
- Experience the Sea Luncheon - Live Music, Traditional Dance and Cooking Demo June 13 12 noon
- Chef's BBQ Party with Live Traditional Music June 13 6:00 p.m.
- "Toutons, Tom Cods and Tunes" June 14 1:00 p.m. ......and more!
Last year, we went to the "Toutons, Tom Cods & Tunes"
event with cod splitting demo and fiddle music.
It was held at the end of May last year and it was still a 'little' frosty. It took place on the popular Mad Rock Trail in the Red Fisherman's Shed, where they had the wood stove smokin' and the food served was deliciious! Mussels, cod, seafood salad and toutons served with molasses. We even had our own personal iceberg keeping an eye on the festivities.
Where else could something like this happen, I ask you?
