Taste the Difference: The Sustainable Approach to Canada's Food Island, Prince Edward Island

Savor responsibly on the smallest Canadian province off the eastern coast

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Known for its rolling hills, fertile farmland, and delicious seafood, Prince Edward Island emerges as a thriving center for sustainable culinary exploration. In 2024, Canada's Food Island offers visitors the chance to enjoy a wide selection of cuisine while combating food waste and supporting the local community.

Prince Edward Island embodies the commitment to sustainable gastronomy with every bite, from a zero-waste, nonprofit dinner series of culinary innovation to the Inn at Bay Fortune's immersive farm-to-table "FireWorks Feast".

An island collective: 10 Chefs, 10 Courses, Zero Waste

A nonprofit ongoing dinner series honoring Prince Edward Island's people, places, and provisions, an island collective is driven by the desire to counteract food waste in the industry. This initiative showcases Chef Nick Chindamo's and partner Marie's dedication to creative expression, cultural exploration and collaboration, all while respecting the province's local resources. The exclusive dining experience will occur in Prince Edward Island bi-annually in April and mid-December before Christmas and features 10 chefs tasked with the creation of 10 courses using assigned ingredients that adhere to a zero-waste commitment. Guests are presented with a blind tasting menu, with only severe food allergies considered for modifications, and each dish is introduced by its creator. All profits will contribute to the "island collective sustainability fund", which will aid in launching the "island collective sustainability award" in late 2024, rewarding a young chef who demonstrates a passion for progressive and sustainable cooking, emphasizing zero-waste practices. Visit https://www.islandcollective.org/reservations for updates and details on the 2024 series.
