Four years in the making and it’s almost here!  FEAST: recipes and stories from a Canadian road trip is the perfect way for Canadian food lovers to celebrate our country’s sesquicentennial 150th birthday. No longer will you be stumped when someone asks you “What is Canadian food?”

Turns out the answer is as diverse as our country and often as quirky as our Canadian sense of humour. Authors Lindsay Anderson (no relation – rats!) and Dana Vanveller spent five months touring all 10 provinces and three territories in their tiny Yaris during the summer of 2013.
