Acadian Arts Asian Fusion Cooking Retreat - Roosevelt Campobello Island International Park

with Chris Toy


Acadian Arts Asian Fusion Cooking Retreat 

Roosevelt Campobello Island International Park

New Brunswick Canada

October  6-9  1 PM Friday -  1 PM Monday

$495 includes workshops and meals

Your instructor, Chris Toy is the author of 6 popular cookbooks, a private chef, and has taught Asian-fusion cooking for several Maine community education programs. Cooking students will learn how to prepare a variety of recipes from Asia, Europe, and the Americas incorporating traditional and local ingredients. Each meal will actively engage cooks with the tools, techniques, and stories behind the dishes being created. All meals are included in the workshop fee as well as specially planned optional evening activities designed to extend your learning from the day’s workshops. Step back to a time when President Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor, and their family escaped to their “beautiful little island” in the Canadian maritimes, Campobello Island. We will be exclusive guests of the international park, staying in historic Victorian cottages. Workshop participants will be immersed in the same coastal scenery enjoyed by the summer residents at the turn of the 20th century. Register for the retreat then call Sherry Mitchell at 506-752-2922 to make room reservations. Only Acadian Arts Retreats participants will be allowed to reserve overnight accommodations in the park.
