OUTPOST UPDATE: Whitney Magliocchi brings her fish kissing talents from the Clubhouse to the Outpost this summer…
As you can see she’s passionate about her fish. In her words:
“After spending the winter working in an office and using my “inside voice” – I’m excited about returning to Haida Gwaii for my third season, and especially about making the move to the Outpost. I’m looking forward to being back on the water, living and working in such an amazing location, and trading cell phones for smoke signals. I can’t wait to meet all of you soon, and I hope Brent shares his books with short chapters.”
Thanks Whitney, we’re excited to have you on board and that female touch you’ll bring to the OP dock this summer.
Chef’s Tobey and Michael have been hard at work getting this summer’s menu set and organizing suppliers. They’re focused on providing all of us with well sourced, delicious food made from scratch and as natural as possible. After experiencing some of their fares last week on an “outing”, I was very impressed. To give you a little insight, here’s what they have to say:
“We have been busy making jam for the lodge over the last couple of days. We made a Wild Ginger (harvested from the forests of Vancouver area) and Rhubarb jam – featured along side a loaf of our homemade bread (this is one of the breads we will be making up at the lodge). This will be one of the varieties of jam this year along with a B.C mixed berry jam. We thought it might go well as an introduction to the direction the food will take this year.”
It all looks excellent, thank you.
The Chefs have sourced out a new meat supplier that produces naturally raised and hormone free animals. You can investigate further by following the link.
Its SUPER busy this week as NIL loads up for the season, Chef Ryan and Stephanie Beechy are on Langara Island unloading the Clubhouse barge as we speak and the Outpost orders are starting to roll in…so that’s all for this week.
We’ll all be fishing VERY soon.
