Child eating cereal in honour of Canoe childhood nostalgia tasting menu

What goes into creating a menu at Canoe?

Canoe Nostalgia has been about where we came from and where we are going, and over the past few months we’ve loved revisiting moments from our past and sharing them with you through an evocative tasting experience. From aromas to flavours to textures, food has the unique ability to conjure up our most cherished memories through a variety of senses simultaneously.

For Chef de Cuisine Ron McKinlay, the foods that have been most symbolic of childhood are those that remind him of the simple pleasures of being a kid. The smell of preserved spruce tips immediately summons vivid memories of sour keys, his favourite candy as a five-year-old.

Keeping in theme with Canoe Nostalgia, we want you to help us create our next tasting menu. We want your experience at Canoe to awaken those treasured childhood memories that bring a smile to your face. So tell us: what were your favourite foods as a child? What aromas, flavours and textures elicit memories of being carefree, of snacking after a long day of school, of cooling off after playing on a hot afternoon, of being a kid?
