Every September, Prince Edward Island puts on a month long Fall Flavours Festival showcasing a variety of acclaimed guest chefs hosting a wide range of unique culinary experiences. Over the years Chef Mark McEwan and his team have taken part in the Beef Festival, the Shellfish festival, Applelicious and much more. This year Mark McEwan took part in a lively Lamb Luau culinary party and a Great Big BBQ feast.
The first event took place on Sunday, September 20th at Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort. Guests enjoyed an afternoon of flavours and fun with Chef Mark McEwan, local chef Peter Angus and chefs & students from the Culinary Institute of Canada. The menu featured locally grown lamb prepared in a variety of dishes.
The upbeat sounds of The Count and the Cuban Cocktail, a local PEI band that had everyone dancing!
The second event took place on Saturday, October 3rd at Delta Prince Edward. Chef Mark McEwan and Corporate Executive Chef Andrew Ellerby wowed guests with local PEI favourites from potatoes and aged beef, to fresh mussels, clams, oysters and lobsters. The barbecue feast was completed with PEI’s finest craft beers and wines.
