Fogo Island Thanksgiving Feast

Fogo Island Inn up in Newfoundland, which is a pretty sick, albeit expensive resort is offering up a Canadian Thanksgiving weekend package. Two-time James Beard Award-winning chef and cookbook author Hugh Acheson and internationally acclaimed Top Chef judge and past contender will work in collaboration with the Fogo Island Inn Kitchen Collective to regale guests over a two-night Canadian Thanksgiving culinary getaway beginning on Friday October 6 through to Sunday October 8, 2017. Acheson and the Fogo Island Inn team will showcase time-honored methods through tastings, a workshop, and a chef’s dialogue brunch over the course of this two-night getaway. A rustic Canadian Thanksgiving feast will be held in the Dining Room on Saturday night, featuring panoramic views of the tempestuous ocean. The supper brings together Southern-style flair and North Atlantic ingredients foraged, harvested, and raised on Fogo Island. The five-course menu will be a demonstration of Chef Acheson’s reverence for Southern technique and food history interpreted through the ingredients and foodways of Fogo Island. On Saturday and Sunday, guests can join in the annual Partridgeberry Festival—a focal point on the Island’s calendar for artists, musicians, bakers and makers, who share their talents with neighbors and visitors alike. Daily outdoor guided or self-guided excursions offer opportunities to enjoy the simple pleasures of foraging the berry patch for 20 varieties of local berries, or heading out with a community host to take in the unique architectural highlights of the island, the rich bird and animal life, or the rugged hiking trails with their breathtaking views. The two-night stay starts at $1,925 per night for two people and includes all meals. It is based on two persons sharing (solo travelers deduct $200; family suites are available) and offers cultural activities, full use of guest facilities and all meals in the Inn’s award-winning dining room.
