Inuit Culinary Travel: Tundra to Table

“Quark Expeditions is honoured to travel to the Inuit homelands of Greenland and Nunavut for the last 30 years,” says Alex McNeil, Director of Expedition Experience and Innovation for Quark Expeditions. “And for more than a decade I’ve had the pleasure, as a member of the Quark Expeditions team; of visiting these regions and developing meaningful relationships in local communities. Therefore, these relationships have inspired us to provide this platform, Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Travel Experience. And, for local chefs in the Arctic to showcase the Inuit cuisine and culture of Greenland and Nunavut. The ultimate purpose of this culinary experience is to support Inuit chefs as they share the stories of their people through food.”

Guests will savour the food in its purest, most natural state.

At the heart of this experience is the purity of the ingredients, such as seafood caught fresh from the Arctic waters, and free-roaming game that consumes naturally organic grass and vegetation. In addition, typical dishes include: pickled halibut, dried halibut and fried halibut served with lumpfish dip and bread; South Greenlandic lamb served with pommes Anna (layers of sliced potatoes), sweet turnip ragu, pickled angelica and wild gravy; and beer-braised muskox served with Greenlandic mashed potatoes, mushroom sauce and berry jam.

Program hosted by local chefs who are experts in Indigenous cuisine.

The dishes guests eat during this on-ship experience reflect the culinary traditions of the region of their voyage. Whether it’s muskox in Greenland or Arctic char in Nunavut. Local chefs will share the story of their people through the food they prepare.

It’s the only Inuit culinary experience of its kind.

Quark Expeditions is the only polar operator to offer this kind of culinary collaboration with local Inuit chefs.
