Flavoured Inspiration to Discover
with Ford Escape #BucketListOtt!
Bucket lists. We all have experiences and adventures we want to try in our lifetime. Some may be to try a new food or as exciting as bungee jumping into the unknown. Ford Canada invited a group of digital influencers at the Coconut Lagoon to think about how to escaping to start working on a bucket list is just a road trip away.
We were treated to an incredible lunch created by Bronze Plate-winning Owner and Executive Chef Joe Thottungal and his talented team. Chef Joe entertained us by preparing part of our meal in front of us while sharing his love of Southern India and his passion for food.
Below is the menu Chef Joe put together for us a sumptuous meal so we can be taken on a culinary tour through Southern India.

South India Signature Thali:

While we sipped on our warm beverages at the end of our meal, Robin Esrock, a well-known travel writer, spoke to our group about searching the world for ultimate bucket list adventures to experience.
He also shared with us his latest book, The Great Global Bucket List, and about how these great experiences can be found close to home. Robin then challenged the group to live out a once-in-a-lifetime bucket list experience around Ottawa with the help of a 2017 Ford Escape! He inspired everyone present to want to get out, explore, and start crossing off those adventures on our #BucketListsOTT!
