Participate in the Upcoming PEI Flavours Culinary Trail

The PEI Culinary Alliance is preparing the 2013 version of the “PEI Flavours Culinary Trail Guide” and invites farmers, fishers, markets, restaurants, events and experiences to have their information listed in it. The guide is Prince Edward Island’s best resource for local food, food products, farm to table culinary events and local restaurants featuring dishes prepared with local foods.

“The culinary trail gives Islanders and visitors a taste of authentic PEI food experiences,” said chair of the PEI Culinary Alliance, Chef Jeff McCourt. “The trail proves why PEI deserves to be recognized as a culinary destination.”

The trail creates one culinary resource (supported by a website and a mobile application) that links agriculture, fisheries, tourism and the local food community. The Culinary Trail defines a route of unique and memorable eating, drinking and educational experiences and offers insight into our Island way of life. The current version of the guide will be complimented with new 2013 listings being added to the web and mobile sites.

Mary Nabuurs from Nabuurs Gardens, Montague states that the beautiful images of Island farm and water scapes that fill the guide provides local businesses with an avenue in which to advertise to the tourists and locals. “The publication is a strong marketing and promotion venue for our farmers’ market and u-pick operation.”
