Tips for Preparing the Perfect Salmon

Spruce tips, that is! In the spirit of Feast, Chef Riddick has prepared a cured wild salmon dish with some of nature's finest ingredients. Enjoy! 


Feast Tofino is an annual food festival that spans two weeks in May. This culinary celebration consists of signature events, specialty menus, guest chef appearances and collaborative promotions at various venues around town. This is a time for local chefs to show off the harvest bounty and the stretch of their imagination. Creative food and beverage is at the root, utilizing locally foraged ingredients in new and exploratory ways. Ultimately locals and visitors are presented with an immersive experience of coastal ‘boat-to-table’ culture.

Long Beach Lodge Resort is a proud sponsor and participant in this popular foodie fest. Enjoy a weekly feature menu in The Great Room, favouring seasonal and regional delights as well as a seaside party on our very own SandBar Bistro, May 12th. Limited tickets are available for $55/pp + tax/gratuity and include a fresh seafood and crab BBQ.
