A Taste of Island Living -Exploring The Wild Foods of Newfoundland August 24th, 2018


Fall is the time of plenty in Newfoundland and Labrador. Berries are ripe, hunting season is open, and crops are harvested. All hands are busy preserving the overabundance of goods to see them through the coming winter and so is Lori. We want you to taste and share these experiences that are so deeply rooted and celebrated in our culture. 

From wild seaweed salts, dandelion and rose hip sweets, bottled game, homemade moose salami and more, we’ll enjoy your company around the fire and share stories of our food and its culture.
