Chuck and the First Peoples' Kitchen


Thursday, October 8


Chuck visits Gesgapegiac, a Mi’kmaq community in East Quebec. Alongside Stephen Jerome, Chuck ventures to the edge of one of the most beautiful salmon rivers in the Atlantic, Cascapedia River. Chuck also visits Stephen’s workshop where he makes handcrafted baskets using traditional methods taught by his father, to ensure the craftsmanship of his ancestors is never forgotten. Back in the community, Stephen and his niece Angel share with Chuck how to cook salmon traditionally and offers recently harvested fiddleheads to taste.

Chuck visits an inspiring workshop where they make handcrafted baskets using traditional methods.
