Nikoline Calcaterra

CHEF and FOOD SERVICES CONSULTANT
9th season

Nikoline Calcaterra is a wellness chef, specializing in the healing and energetic powers of whole food.  She has trained in the macrobiotic tradition at the Kushi Institute; with the “Mammas” in Tuscany; and held the intuitive farm-to-table kitchen at Newbold House Retreat Centre in northern Scotland.  When she’s not cooking for you at Voyageur Quest in Canada’s famous Algonquin Park, this global wanderer, cooking instructor and cookbook author spends her time traveling the world, circling with friends, new and old, and fueling and sharing her passion for the earth’s sacred gift of whole food.

 

Voyageur Quest is thrilled to have Nikoline back for her seventh season as a consulting manager.  She has an abiding passion for fresh ingredients and the creative process that she masters in an off-the grid setting. We value our continued journey with her as she continues to elevate the experience of sharing of regional whole food on our Algonquin Adventures that our customers truly delight in. She has an impeccable sense of balance for the relationship between food and people. She is a natural leader that is quite simply wonderful to be around.

John Langford

DIRECTOR & OWNER
29th season

I love being outside on a wilderness adventure. I also love to share my passion for adventure with others. Voyageur Quest has been the perfect vehicle for combining these passions. Algonquin’s north west provides the bounty with world class canoeing,trout fishing, dogsledding and my favourite back country skiing. Hope to see you on the trail!
