Join Vick Allen, Catering Coordinator at Four Fires Catering for lunch, an afternoon snack, or dinner! For lunch, you’ll learn how to prepare a modern take on a Mi’kmaq dish, eel. Before making the eel, we’ll make some salads with local ingredients to go with the BBQ eel. We’ll be preparing the eel in the kitchen and grilling the eel on the cedar planks in the BBQ. Later that afternoon, you’ll learn to make a pie crust and fill it with local pie fillings (partridgeberry, blueberry, local cranberry and apple - we’ll decide which you want). And finally for dinner, we’ll be turning local rabbits into a delicious stew, and no stew is complete without bannock.
*Bring a hat, apron (if you have one), and preferably non-slip shoes!
