Bison. Any Canadian living in the 21st century has heard of Alberta beef, but how many people's dinner plates have benefited from the country's recent bison renaissance?
Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller
We are Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller, Vancouver-based writers, adventurers, wanderlusts, and co-creators of FEAST: An Edible Road Trip. We first met at a music festival in Kelowna, immediately bonding around the glow of the fire and burning marshmallows. Fast friends, we were united by our desires to seek meaningful work, and a mutual love of food, dance parties, and adventure.
We went to the Downtown Hotel and partook in perhaps the most essential Dawson City experience: the sour toe cocktail. This is where you put a real human toe, preserved in alcohol and stored in rock salt, into an alcoholic beverage of your choosing. Yes.

When was the last time you had upsquee? Salal berries? Sea rocket? We'd never even heard of these West Coast foods until we began our FEAST journey, and it was a strange thing to realize we could live within a landscape for years, and still not know all it can offer for dinner.
