Lori McCarthy is dedicated to the cultural foods of Newfoundland and Labrador through her company Cod Sounds and the Livyers Cultural Alliance. Her core values embrace locally sourced regional cuisine and wild foods from the land and sea; this is reflected in her food experiences and workshops. Lori has been listed as a hidden gem in National Geographic and has been written up in Coastal Living as one of the eight great excursions in North America. Marsha grew up on the west coast of Newfoundland where being active in the outdoors was normal. A family boil up on a beach or out in the woods while camping was a common thing. Food was homemade and creative. Her love of photography started at a young age when she found her grandfathers darkroom in the attic of the familys 100 year old home. She also continues crafting timehonoured items like the Newfoundland vamp and making a consistent supply of Cod Sounds own Jigger slippers.
