FILM IS ON THE MENU this November 3 and 4. Fogo Island Inn welcomes the creators of Devour! Food & Film Fest to a weekend made for cinephiles and epicures.

Devour!’s Chef Howell and the Fogo Island Inn Kitchen Collective will pair a menu of ingredients harvested from the bounty of Fogo Island’s land and sea, with works of superb artistry and taste made for the screen. It is a weekend for the senses: from the Friday evening film reception to Saturday’s epic supper, and a Sunday morning farewell forage breakfast.

Whet your appetite for the weekend ahead, and join us in the lounge for a Friday evening reception with bites prepared by Devour!’s Chef Howell, and the Fogo Island Inn Kitchen Collective. Later, supper will showcase the best of the Island, with a special chowder cook-off, featuring two chowders made with regional ingredients. On Saturday, begin your day with a leisurely breakfast, then meet your Community Host: a life-long Islander who is sure to share stories of Fogo Island’s cinematic legacy- Fogo Process- and, if you’re lucky, reveal the best ways to make cod cakes, toutons and brewis. The evening’s programming, a curated food-film pairing, will offer up six short films selected by Managing Director Lia Rinaldo, screened during a six-course meal. Wake up on Sunday to discover your Daybreak Box filled with pre-breakfast treats. Make your way to the Dining Room for brunch, and a farewell film reel.

The two-night-minimum itinerary for the Devour! Food & Film Weekend at Fogo Island Inn includes all meals, welcome cocktails, film and food pairings, and a half-day Community Host orientation. or 1-855-268-9277
