Fogo Island Food Circle

Home cooks, growers, chefs, visitors, and fishers will convene on Fogo Island to host our first ever Food Circle, emerging out of the Newfoundland tradition of song circles. It is the kind of community gathering that offers each participating individual an opportunity to lead, suggest, or request at least one story about food. This community conversation about the past, present, and future of food will be led by Mitchell Davis, Executive Vice President of the James Beard Foundation; Bonnie Stern, one of Canada’s foremost cookbook authors; Fogo Island Inn Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue; and Fogo Island Arts' international artist-in-residence, Steffen Jagenburgwho will organize the discussion around the journey of food from hyper-local to hyper-global and back again. Leading all in a discussion of Fogo Island’s path from self-reliance and specificity through weathering the impacts of industrialization on the food supply, this quartet of food animators will further explore the recent turn in the road back to nearer sourcing, sustainability, and a proclivity for wild products. Fogo Island Inn Innkeeper Zita Cobb will host the Food Circle, which will be held at the Big Church in Joe Batt’s Arm on July 31, 2018 from 5:30-7:30PM. The Fogo Island Food Circle is free to attend and open to all.
