Meet Lori

Lori McCarthy is dedicated to preserving the cultural food of Newfoundland and Labrador through her company Cod Sounds. Her core values embrace locally sourced regional cuisine and this is reflected in the food experiences she shares with her classes at The Cod Sounds Cookery School located at The Compton House Inn.


Cook and Stay

Whether you are a well-seasoned cook or a food enthusiast, there is a class to inspire you. Lori invites you to discover a shared cooking and dining experience at the beautiful Compton House, just minutes from the downtown core, on what was once old St. John’s cottage and farming area. Consider staying the night or for the weekend in one of Compton House’s unique rooms where you can cook, stay, and explore the estate.



The classes are hands-on and explore the art of well-crafted food steeped in the cuisine of our province with a traditional and modern approach. From breads and pastries, to rabbit ravioli, cheese making, charcuterie and butchery you are well fed in every class. Learn the stories of cultural foods and locally sourced ingredients, such as wild game, pork, lamb and vegetables, that are weaved into our dishes and presented with a modern flair.
