This is our fifth month participating in the Canadian Food Experience Project which began June 7 2013. As more than 80 participants share our collective stories across the vastness of our Canadian landscape through our regional food experiences, we hope to bring global clarity to our Canadian culinary identity through the cadence of our concerted Canadian voice. This months theme is the fall harvest. You can see all of our posts in this series here.
Unlike last month’s theme (preserving) which turned out to be a painful exercise in choosing a topic; this month’s was an easy pick for me. We’ve been challenged to write about the Canadian Harvest. In my case, that means hunting.
Regular readers know that I publish my hunting diary each year (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013). They’re long and somewhat (intentionally) boring. It’s my hope that reading the posts simulate the experience of the hunt which involves prolonged periods of quiet solitude contrasted with moments of physical and mental tests that almost dares you to continue.
