On the Road....Culinary Adventures from Halifax to Winnipeg

My hubby and I are moving from Halifax to Winnipeg and we are hell bent on finding some great food adventures along the way. Some of you may remember our vacation in British Columbia, where we discovered Salmon Jerky at the Coombs Market and visited the wharf in Sydney, BC where the fisherman steamed some freshly caught dungeness crab while we fed some seals.

Our first stop on this adventure was in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. We stopped at a local restaurant, The Lobster Bay Eatery, where we indulged in a seafood feast.  The owner came to the table and described their specialty, "The Mucket Bucket". It included a lobster,  a pound of mussels, a pound of clams, oysters, potatoes and corn on the cob. It was all steamed and served with garlic butter in a large metal pot. This was the largest seafood feast I have seen, aside from Christmas Eve dinner with my family. This meal was an appropriate last supper in the Maritimes and a great way for us to enjoy a few of our favorite things.

We are off to Quebec, where the adventure continues......
