Location: Roosevelt Campobello International Park, Campobello Island

$495 includes workshops and meals.

Your instructor, Chris Toy, is the author of 6 popular cookbooks, a private chef, and has taught Asian 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.

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!

All meals are included in the workshop fee plus specially planned evening activities designed to extend your learning from the day’s workshops. We convene on Friday, Oct 6th at 1pm with classes throughout the weekend and end on Monday, Oct 9th at 1pm.

Register for the retreat then call Sherry Mitchell at 506-752-2922 to make room reservations (an additional cost).  Only Acadian Arts Retreats' participants will be allowed to reserve overnight accommodations in the park.

Please note: Included in the workshop registration is a $40 non-refundable fee should you have to cancel.

COVID note: For everyone’s comfort and safety we suggest doing a COVID test 24 hours prior to arrival.  We will be following CDC guidelines according to location and dates.
