The history and settlement of Newfoundland will forever be bound to cod, both from an economic and culinary perspective. Cod fishing created a tight affinity between Newfoundlanders throughout their history, however in 1992 a moratorium was imposed on the province’s fishing industry, ending almost 500 years of cod fishing in Newfoundland and Labrador. The immediate impact threw 40,000 people out of work in a single day. Beyond Culinary is a Canadian culinary series exploring the stories behind the food in the different regions throughout Canada.
