FAMILY FOOD FAIR AT HODSON BAY HOTEL

Join us on Saturday, October 12th from 2:30pm - 5:00pm, as Hodson Bay’s Octagon Kitchen will transition into an Autumnal themed Food Fair. Hosting the best of the regions food producers, cooking classes and demos for kids and adults alike, along with a fun blend of local entertainment, it’s a definite diary date for all foodie families!

Children who attend this free event will be invited to participate in interactive cookery demonstrations led by the hotel’s Executive Chef, consisting of recipes using only local produce. 

SHOWCASE OF LOCAL PROVENANCE

Inspired by Hodson Bay’s Executive Chefs, John Burke and Gavin O’Rourke, the essence of the day is to truly showcase how a culture of local provenance is brought to life on the Hotel’s menus. Children who attend will be invited to participate in interactive cookery demonstrations led by the hotel’s Executive Chefs. Demonstrations will consist of recipes using only local produce, and whilst the children are assisting with the chopping, mixing and stirring, they will also learn about the origins of the food, the methods of production and the importance of supporting local suppliers.
