Gourmet Backpacking food is an oxymoron
After hiking 15 miles with a 60 lb pack I have had some top ramen that made an epic meal comparable to my first sampling of Ciopino. It's a matter of perspective, I do not see it being satisfying on a long voyage.
You might want to look in on a river runners forum. I have heard tales of steaks and lobsters for 3 weeks. I believe it calls for freezing, dry ice and a big cooler. It would help to have a 16' raft to follow you to carry all these provisions, but possibly though there are some ideas to be borrowed from there.
Canned Tuna, Chicken, Clams, Salmon are all good, Costco would be a good source for this.
Smoked meats and sausages: Tons of interesting varieties available.
Yes good food is important. I crossed the gulf of mexico surviving on crackers and granola bars, not a lot of fun.
