Lori grew up in a small fishing village on the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Her father was a teacher, a fisherman and a farmer. Her mother is still a traditional homemaker. Lori's family had available to them the freshest fish, homegrown vegetables and locally-grown meat and that was quite common to the families of NL. It was from this simply prepared delicious food that Lori grew her passion for beautiful produce and product. Lori went on to work with many great chefs in some of St. John's best restaurants. She currently owns and operates Cod Sounds, a culinary experience company offering food culture tours.
