How to Eat Like a Local
How to Eat Like a Local
A highly subjective guide for visitors to PEI

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

A few years ago, a tourist asked me where Islanders go to eat lobster. I explained that, generally, Islanders eat lobster at home on their own picnic tables.

“Oh, so Islanders don’t go to the lobster suppers?” he said.

“Oh no,” I said. “They go in droves. But they don’t go for the lobster—they go for the rolls and the pie.”

Chowing Down

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

What I would like, please, is that recipe for a chowder that feeds a thousand people. Because everyone at Village Feast in Souris agrees, it’s the best chowder they’ve ever had. And those mashed potatoes! So light, so redolent of sweet Island butter. In the middle of a hurricane, people came together to make this great food—the beef and the lobster and the shortcake—and they

The Golden Hour
The Golden Hour

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

There is a time in the evening just before sunset—not every day, but a clear day with a little dust in the sky—when the whole world is briefly bathed in soft yellow-orange light. Photographers call this the “Golden Hour,” and if you’re down at the shore when this happens you feel extremely special. The red capes literally glow, and everything pauses while the sun blesses t

Coffee News

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

Minh Hoang Truong pours hot water into a small metal cylinder that sits on a drinking glass. Inside the cylinder is finely ground coffee. I lift the lid of the cylinder, stick my nose in and smell strong coffee and, although there’s none in it, chocolate. The coffee drips slowly onto a layer of sweetened condensed milk.

When the coffee has dripped through, I remove the

Road Food

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I am eating lunch in a parking lot and I don’t mind a bit. Hush puppy? Po’boy? Food truck? It sounds like road food. So if I’m sitting by the road, so much the better. A po’boy? It’s a sandwich. And this one has beef and lettuce and pickles and some kind of sauce that I am not ashamed to lick right off the plate. I take a swig of iced tea. Sure, that’s Ellen’s Creek right there. But it

Yummy Naan Bakery does wonders with saffron

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

The first thing you notice when you enter the Yummy Naan Bakery is the bright yellow. It’s everywhere, as befits a bakery that knows a thing or two about saffron. You’ll be offered a cup of saffron juice, a bright yellow drink that is sweet and tastes exactly like a morning in June.

If you’re there on a Monday, Wednesday or F

A Tale of Two Lobsters

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Aside from traditional lobster suppers there have been few restaurants over the years that have had menus focused exclusively on lobster. A good many restaurants have one lobster dish on the menu. Seafood restaurants often have two or three. But it’s rare to see either the majority or the entirety of a menu dedicated to the Island’s favourite crustacean. But two suc

Digging Dandelions

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Last month on Mother’s Day I naturally cast my thoughts back to my own mother, Constance Victoria Swanson, who was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, just before the beginning of World War I. If Mom knew I was writing this column, she’d be so proud. She’d be telling all her friends about me, and sending me ideas every week.

Mom was a woman who believed wholeheartedly in

Lifeblood

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Some say it’s lobster they crave after a long winter. Others want only tart, pink rhubarb or something fresh and green. But, for me, the true taste of spring is maple syrup. It’s our very first clue that things are waking up; even before we’ve shaken off our winter doldrums, maple trees start producing sap. Bright days, cold nights, the warmth of a little fire—these are the ver
