Program Description:
pei

This course will explore the culture and cuisine of Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada.  The Mi’kmaq natives were the original inhabitants of this maritime province, known as the birthplace of Confederation.  Rich with Celtic, Acadian, and Mi’kmaq heritage, students will experience the culture and cuisine through participating in food- and agriculture-related tours and experiences, as well as other experiences that highlight PEI’s rich heritage, including its literary history (Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery) and Acadian influence, from which the Cajun culture evolved. 

A traditional classroom will rarely be utilized, as the charming backdrop of PEI will be your classroom for the course. This includes various agribusiness and agritourism site visits, a few of the breathtaking National Parks, various artisan shops, dine at some of the best restaurants on PEI, have a brewery tour, and even have your own private cooking class offered by the Culinary Institute of Canada! By the end of this program, the world will become smaller as students discover some of their own culinary traditions are born straight from past generations on PEI.
