From our organizers:

Expanding the Fogo Island Food Circle: Food, Community, and Economic Development from a Small Island to a Large Planet

Following the success of Fogo Island’s first-ever community-wide food circle in July of 2018 and subsequent gatherings, Fogo Island comes to New York City to explore the foodways that have distinguished the Island’s traditional and contemporary cuisine, alongside the food systems that connect us all. Moderated by Mitchell Davis of the James Beard Foundation, acclaimed food writer Gabriella Gershenson will join Fogo Island Inn’s Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue and Innkeeper Zita Cobb for a food-centred discussion that will touch on themes of wholeness, community, and the most important things: nature and culture. As founder of the charity Shorefast, Cobb sought to revitalize a remote community on an island off the coast of an island off the coast of North America and in the process realized the power of food and hospitality. The panelists will seek to uncover the ways in which people from places both big and small have a role to play in refining our thinking around food in order to build stronger, positive relationships with the past, the planet, and one another.

Sponsored and Organized by The New School and The James Beard Foundation.
