MAYOR OF TYNE VALLEY, KING OF OYSTERS R O D W E AT H E R B I E - S A LT Y I S L A N D.C O M Jeff Noye and his partner Damian Enman want you to come to their kitchen in Tyne Valley Tyne Valley is the perfect place for an oyster business. “This is the centre of the oyster universe,” Jeff Noye, co-owner of Valley Pearl Oysters (and mayor of Tyne Valley) said. “Even the rink sells fried oysters.” Valley Pearl Oysters is a processing facility and oyster bar in Tyne Valley. The community has a rich history of oyster fishing and processing. The annual Tyne Valley Oyster Festival draws thousands of people from all over Atlantic Canada. The highlight of the festival is the shucking competition which has been running since 1973. Valley Pearl Oysters has been processing oysters since June 2018, and in December of last year partners Noye and Damian Enman opened a bar above the processing floor. Valley Pearl’s focus is on premium wild oysters. He said the demand for them locally is pretty high and they’re fulfilling that market right now as well as buyers in Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. “A lot of wholesalers are looking for product as they know we‘re still fishing, but right now I want to keep the guys that have been buying from me year-round happy.” He said the feedback has been great so far which he puts down to tough grading. “We have a machine that sizes them but we grade every oyster by hand.”

Friday and Saturday nights there is food, music, and drinks upstairs. Valley Pearl features an ever-changing menu. He said all his duties—as mayor, fisher, barkeep, father—keep him very busy. “There is no time! Right now it’s busy with just being open two days a week. In the summer we plan on being open five days a week. We’ll likely bring on a chef and some staff; right now it’s just Damian and me. We have friends that help out when needed.” Noye became mayor of Tyne Valley last year and at the same time stepped down from his duties as the chair of the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival after 15 years. “But I’m still in charge of the shucking competition; that’s kind of my baby,” he said. “Of all the changes to the festival over the years the elevation of the shucking competition is the one I’m most proud of.” The competition is the only way to qualify from Canada for the world championship contest in Ireland. “People take it pretty seriously. We get the top shuckers and there isn’t anything they wouldn’t give to win it.” Valley Pearl Oyster is open for wholesale and retail during the week and the oyster bar is open Friday and Saturday evenings.



PEI’S TWO LOBSTER SEASONS C A R O L H O R N E - S A LT Y I S L A N D.C O M Getting fresh seafood in spring, summer and fall Every summer Islanders make the “list” of all the things they plan to do before winter sets in again. Consuming quantities of lobster is often high on that to-do list. Well, even if your other plans went off the rails, do not fear, it is certainly not too late to get your hands on fresh-caught Prince Edward Island lobster. A lot of excitement goes along with that first catch of the season and the requisite Mother’s Day feasts, but August and September are excellent months to head to the market for a few more lobster feeds. In order to protect the stocks for the future, the PEI lobster fishery is highly regulated and Island fishers stay off the water from


July to early August to allow the lobster time to shed its shell and develop a new one. Then in early August, the 225 fishers working out of south shore ports from Victoria to Tignish (Lobster Fishing Area 25) set their traps for a twomonth fishing season. The summer break in fishing is only one of the reasons that the Marine Stewardship Council has awarded the PEI lobster fishery official sustainable certification. Other protection measures taken by Island fishers include a limited number of licenses and a limited number of traps per fisher, traps with escape hatches, minimum carapace shell size, and the release of females bearing eggs.


“Island fishers were highly involved in defining the measures to protect the resource,” Mitch Jollimore said. He fishes out of the French River area. “And many PEI fishers are actively engaged in the ongoing research to understand the lobster species, collecting and sharing data about the lobsters throughout the season.” As well, great strides have been made in holding live lobster between seasons, with many lobster pounds utilizing stateof-the-art water recirculating systems to ensure the lobsters are just as fresh all summer as the day they were caught. Many fishers are also outfitting their boats with canopies and insulated tanks ensuring lobsters are in top condition when they arrive at the wharf. So what’s different about a lobster harvested in August or September compared to one caught during the spring fishery? “Some people prefer the taste and texture of lobster caught in the fall season,” Jen Bryant said. Bryant is a product developer and food stylist at Canada’s Smartest Kitchen in Charlottetown. “And of course, because the new shells are not quite so hard, the meat is that much easier to extract from the shell.” Whatever the season, fresh lobster from PEI is sure to satisfy.

THE PUNGENT SMELL OF SUCCESS C H E R Y L YO U N G - S A LT Y I S L A N D.C O M Sit down with Al Picketts for a conversation about garlic, and you’ll discover that his wealth of knowledge about this flavourful vegetable is abundant, and he is more than happy to share it. Picketts started Eureka Garlic out of an interest in adding garlic to his own garden. “I made every mistake possible....it didn’t grow. So I started looking into it, what am I doing wrong here,” he said. Nearly 20 years later, he supplies seed and eating garlic to farms and consumers across Canada. You can find Eureka Garlic on Route 2, outside Kensington. And yes, the pun in the name is fully intended (just sound it out!). Planting over 100,000 garlic cloves each fall on an acre of land, the farm uses natural, sustainable practices to keep the soil healthy and fertile. “It’s a lot of work, a tremendous amount of work,” Picketts said. “We plant by hand, we weed by hand, we harvest by hand, we clean and grade and size all by hand.” Picketts has developed his own varieties of garlic (at last count there were 14). Each begins with ‘Eureka’ and then a person’s name (often a family member), so you can find garlic varieties like ‘Eureka Amie’, and ‘Eureka Kim’.

The farm is run by Al, his wife, Kim Knight-Picketts, and a few years ago, his daughter Amie joined the team making it a family affair. Each garlic bulb is graded by size, and then for imperfections, using simple tools like toothbrushes to clean the bulbs. Perfect ones are sold for seed and the not-so-perfect bulbs sold for eating. “There’s an old saying in the garlic business, ‘you plant your best and eat the rest,’” Picketts explained. One final selection is when bulbs are set aside to create Eureka Garlic’s well-known black garlic. Black garlic is, simply put, slow roasted garlic. Slow, as in 21 days. Picketts isn’t about to share the exact details of making his black garlic but the resulting bulbs are sought after by chefs, artisan producers, and discerning diners. With a unique taste, it can be described as having a date or prune-like flavour, with hints of chocolate and the sweetness of balsamic vinegar all rolled into one. It is remarkably smooth in texture as well. Why not pick up a bulb or two to take home with you as a tasty memory of PEI?



Prince Edward Island Beef A “taste of place” experience.

Healthy. Happy. Humane. Salt air, iron-rich soil, and rolling pastures produce healthy, stress-free animals. There’s a relationship between farmer, animal and the land that can’t be replicated resulting in beef as distinctive as the Island itself. Prince Edward Island Certified Beef, raised on Canada’s Food Island, is genuine in character and old world flavour for the tables of those who choose to eat better. Drop in to a local Sobeys across PEI to pick up Prince Edward Island Certified Island Beef, Island View Farms, and Atlantic Beef Products Inc. Visit www.abpi.ca to meet our producers and try out our delicious recipes.

THE LITTLE SHACK OF FRIES B R I A N M C I N N I S - S A LT Y I S L A N D.C O M Caron Prins is known around the world for her PEI french fries It is not an exaggeration to suggest that Caron Prins and her ‘Chip Shack’ are known in many parts of the world. In fact, articles about her and her fries have been penned in Korea, Japan, China, Germany, the United States and various parts of Canada. Thousands of tourists have carried her story across the globe. Prins, who was born and grew up in Alexandra, PEI, travelled the world working in the service industry, but had never tried cooking for a living and “honestly, I didn’t know what I was doing,” Prins said, in a recent interview. “On my very first day I was in the shack making french fries and they were absolutely terrible and I had no idea what I was going to do”. Since she was 19, Prins has been volunteering and backpacking in Third World countries which is how she “came to love the street food vibe, the flavor and the little ‘ma and pa’s’ that are all over South and Central America and all through Southeast Asia.” She decided she wanted to bring a little of that back home. Prins does not just cook and serve food, she is also a hit with her customers.

Whether it be giving a big hug—which the menu on the side of the building states are free—posing for selfies, or waving at passersby, Prins’ customers love her. Trip Advisor has given her shack 4 ½ out of 5 ‘plates’ and rated it fourth best out of 185 restaurants in Charlottetown. All the secondary ingredients on her menu are her creations, from the glutenfree batter to the salts for the french fries. The lobster roll and hand cut fries are her best sellers. Her menu started with fries and fish and chips and over the years it has grown to 16 items such as a lobster roll containing only lobster meat and no fillers, gluten-free fish and chips, pulled pork poutine, and gluten-free apple fries. But at the top of the menu are her ‘world famous’ hand-cut Island chips that have made her the selfdescribed ‘Queen of Fries’. In June 2018, Prins’ chip shack was hoisted onto a barge and floated to its new location on a floating dock at the Peake’s Wharf. Her location may have changed, but her menu has not and the hugs are still free.

Points East Coastal Drive Nothing will make you appreciate Island food more than our beautiful scenery. Nowhere is this more apparent than when you visit Points East Coastal Drive. After you watch the sun rise over the ocean, work up an appetite as you play on beaches among the best on PEI. Have the sand at Basin Head actually “sing to you” or discover the spectacular dune system at the PEI National Park at Greenwich. When hunger does hit, family eateries, cozy country inns, fish & chip restaurants or dairy bars


are likely a hop away. If you’re looking for something to sip on instead, Points East Coastal Drive is also the wine and spirit capital of Prince Edward Island! The atmosphere is informal, and you’ll feel like one of the family in no time as you explore the culinary communities “Down East”.

FOOD, FERRIES, AND FUN C H E R Y L YO U N G - S A LT Y I S L A N D.C O M When you live on an island, travel to and fro can be complicated. For nearly 80 years, Northumberland Ferries (NFL) has steadfastly transported people and products across the Strait. Connecting the east end of the Island with Nova Scotia, NFL moves over 400,000 people every year. Looking to create a fun atmosphere, NFL launched Seaside Experiences in 2015. “It was a dream that we had, about how do we make our experience on the ferry better for our passengers, how do we showcase local foods, local beverages, local artisans. That was the goal, it started small. We’ve built on it every year,” Jessica Gillis, marketing and customer experience manager for NFL said. Providing a floating farmers’ market feel through the months of July, August, and September, Seaside Experiences puts chefs, local businesses, and artists on the ferries. Cooking demos, local foods and beverages sampling, and musical performances all come together in a perfect combination. Passengers are able to interact with the vendors during the 75-minute crossings between Caribou, NS and Wood Islands, PEI.

One of four chefs involved in Seaside Experiences, Chef Ilona Daniel, collaborates with local food producers engaging visitors and locals alike. She said, “We seek out exceptional PEI products to do demos and samplings while sharing the best-kept foodie and location secrets.” New this year is the Chef on Board series; each Monday Chef Lisa Clark will be showcasing local food July through to Labour Day. As well, Chef Treena MacLeod from PEI and The Kilted Chef, Alain Bossé, who hails from Pictou, NS, will highlight the many delicious dishes and local products we offer here in the Maritimes. There are often musicians on crossings as well. Guy LeClair, hospitality manager with NFL describes what can happen, “On certain crossings, you’ll have food demonstrations and product sampling with musicians playing. It essentially turns into a kitchen party.” Daniel said, “East Coast food and music adds definite excitement to the experience.” The program schedule is on NFL’s website, should you want to plan a special trip this summer.



We have as many “must-tastes” as we have “must-dos”.
