"A chef's paradise, PEI is much more than its famous potatoes. The Island is full of hidden culinary gems that only residents are familiar with," said Chef Michael Smith. "It's a place where the lobster on your plate may have been harvested on the fishing boat at the dock outside your window and the salad is made up of herbs and greens from the garden in the yard," continued Smith.
