Expanding the Fogo Island Food Circle: Fogo Island Inn at the New School in NYC

Following the success of Fogo Island’s first-ever community-wide Food Circle in July of 2018 and subsequent gatherings, Fogo Island comes to New York City to explore the foodways that have distinguished the Island’s traditional and contemporary cuisine, alongside the food systems that connect us all. Moderated by Mitchell Davis of the James Beard Foundation, acclaimed food writer Gabriella Gershenson will join Fogo Island Inn’s Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue and Innkeeper Zita Cobb for a food-centred discussion on March 1, 2019 that will touch on themes of wholeness, community, and the most important things: nature and culture. The panelists will seek to uncover the ways in which people from places both big and small have a role to play in refining our thinking around food in order to build stronger, positive relationships with the past, the planet, and one another. The event follows Chef Gushue's sold-out dinner at the James Beard House on February 28, 2019. 

Sponsored and organized by The New School and The James Beard Foundation, registration is required to attend the panel discussion. More information and tickets can be found here.
