Fogo Island Inn welcomes the creators of DEVOUR! The Food Film Fest. Devour! Founder Chef Michael Howell and the Fogo Island Inn Kitchen Collective will create a menu of dishes made with Fogo Island’s land and sea bounty to complement works of superb artistry made for the big screen. This weekend for the senses begins with a Friday evening film reception and chowder cook-off, followed by Saturday’s epic supper and a Sunday morning farewell foraged breakfast. Saturday evening’s programming, a curated food-and-film pairing, will offer up six short films selected by Devour!
