We started Drunken Sailor for one reason: So we wouldn't have to fly back home to Halifax every time we got an urge to have a donair. That urge comes about twice a week, so the flights were getting expensive. Our family has been making donair meat at home for over 20 years and after some coaxing from our friends, we decided that we should share the flavour with everyone else and give people all over the world a taste of this deliciousness.
Why Drunken Sailor? Well, sailors are savvy, they know a good meal and if they're from Nova Scotia, they know a good donair. But a drunken sailor, they are the true connoisseurs of this legendary food!
This recipe, created by Jen and our father (Kevin Lohnes - the man!) is the real deal, nothing fancy, just that incredible flavour so many have come to love, and many more must experience soon.
With each package of spice, we send the step by step directions to make the entire dish. They are simple and as good as this East Coast delicacy gets. All very affordable, right in your own home.
