Food gives us time and space to share ideas and make connections.
Presenting carefully curated culinary experiences featuring as much locally sourced, fresh and seasonal ingredients as possible, our aim as your hosts and chefs is to take you on a food adventure.
Inspired by the wild terrain, the rhythm of the seasons, the catch from local fishermen and the produce of local harvesters, food is the creative canvas that allows us to share our Newfoundland and Norwegian cultures as well as our many travels and international food experiences that have influenced us.
We make everything from scratch and try our very best to accommodate food allergies and most dietary restrictions, given we have enough advance notice..... which is VERY important because we do not have easy access to grocery stores or food suppliers.
We are both seasoned cooks and major foodies who love creating new twists on familiar dishes as well as developing upscaled versions of old favourites.
Having collectively travelled to over 120 countries, we're deeply influenced and inspired by the different foods, flavours and presentations we've experienced over the years. Italian cuisine is one of our favourites, so it shows up frequently.
Equally as important as our sense of culinary creativity is our commitment to sustainability. As a result, we locally source as many ingredients as possible when in season.
Our food will take you on an adventure. Each dish has a story that we love to share with guests.
We look forward to serving you at our table.
