August 4th is Food Day Canada

On August 4th, Fogo Island Inn will be joining restaurants across the country to take part in Food Day Canada, an annual celebration of our nation's local food and culinary culture. Fogo Island's traditional outport cuisine is inspired by ingredients harvested from the Island’s peaty soils, foraged from the salt-sprayed shoreline and wild-berry patches, fished from local waters, and raised and hunted regionally. Fogo Island Inn's culinary team led by Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue creates exceptional gastronomic experiences with reverence and respect for Fogo Island’s distinctive bounty. Everything coming out of the Inn’s kitchen is house-made and the menu changes with Fogo Island’s seven seasons in a consistent celebration of this place. Here is a sample menu of what Chef Gushue and the culinary team will be serving to Inn guests this Food Day Canada.
