Halloween on Fogo Island: A spirited adventure in food and ghostly traditions
From the Highlands of Scotland to the offshore islands of Newfoundland, guest chef Craig Grozier is set to host a culinary foray in celebration of Halloween on Fogo Island during Ghost Talks and Chef Walks (27-29 October 2017). In this fifth installment of the Island Harvest Series, guests will sup on food prepared by Fogo Island Inn’s Kitchen Collective, join a chef walk to a traditional root cellar, and enjoy an evening of supernatural storytelling around a bonfire.
The end of October means two things on Fogo Island: the natural wind-up of Berry Season and Halloween. The itinerary for the two-night Ghost Talks and Chef Walks includes a foraging expedition through the hills and barrens of Fogo Island for the last of the season’s berries, and a Q&A session in which Chef Grozier and Fogo Island Inn’s Kitchen Collective chefs will share the challenges and joys of cooking on a remote island. Guests will participate in a chef walk to a traditional root cellar and fishing stage, and listen to supernatural storytelling around a bonfire. Lunch takes the form of a traditional Newfoundland boil-up cooked over an open fire on the beach, while Saturday dinner consists of a delicious five-course meal showcasing the juniper berry and other foraged ingredients—perfectly suited for guests who share an appetite for adventure and fine food.
The Ghost Talks and Chef Walks itinerary includes all accommodations, meals, guided walks, storytelling, Q&A sessions with the chefs, and cultural activities.
