September 22, 2019 Fall Berries & Wild Game

150.00

Fall is the time of plenty in Newfoundland and Labrador and this workshop will see you tasting a bit of it all. The berries are ripe and hunting season is open and all hands have been busy preserving the overabundance of goods to see them through the coming winter.

In workshop will see us foraging for fall berries and edibles, making jam and wild salts to take with you so that you too can enjoy a taste of Newfoundland in your own home.

We look forward sharing these foods that are so deeply rooted and celebrated in our culture and sharing with you how to make your own. From wild seaweed salts, cloudberry jam, bottled game and more, we’ll enjoy a meal and your company around the fire while share stories of our Fall foods and our culture. 

This is one of  Newfoundland and Labrador’s most treasured traditions: The Boil-Up. It simply means a spot of lunch and a cuppa tea boiled up over a fire and we look forward to sharing one with you.

We'll get the fire going, and cook up a taste of wild Newfoundland and Labrador.
