Chef Michael Smith wins award for his Fireworks Feast

Chastity and Michael Smith (photo: Louise Savoie)Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants has announced that its Best Farm to Table Restaurant award will go to PEI’s Chef Michael Smith for his work with FireWorks Feast at the Inn at Bay Fortune. Chef Smith grows his own ingredients and partners with local producers and marine botanists to design menus that showcase the best of the region.

FireWorks is named after the 25-foot brick-lined, wood-burning beast that anchors the Fire Kitchen. It includes every form of live-fire cooking known, a smokehouse, open hearth, grill, rotisserie, plancha and wood oven. No dials, no switches, no gas, no power, just old-school fire cooking.

FireWorks Feast chefs create a new menu daily using ingredients from the Inn’s culinary farm and herb gardens and from a roster of Prince Edward Island farmers, fisherfolk, foragers and culinary artisans. The Feast experience begins at 5 pm with a guided tour of the organic farm and garden. Then at 6 pm Oyster Hour begins—an interactive exploration of Inn at Bay Fortune’s whimsical grounds and gardens discovering the all-you-can-slurp Oyster Bar and the day’s flavours from their outdoor fire-pits, smokehouse and farm stands. At 7 pm the Feast begins. It’s served at long butcher-block tables overlooking Bay Fortune. The menu includes freshly baked wood-oven bread, seafood chowder with all shellfish from PEI, the days catch, a farm salad and wood-roasted meats and vegetables. The meal concludes with baked desserts featuring Island fruits.

For Chef Michael Smith, coming back to the Inn is a return to his roots as a chef. For seven years in the 1990s, he led the kitchen, bringing international fame to the country inn. 

For Michael’s wife Chastity, being an innkeeper allows her to share her Maritime roots, stylish design flair and love of entertaining. 

Chef Michael has an international reputation for simple, sustainable home cooking. He is the author of ten cookbooks and has starred in five different Food Network series. His cooking shows are seen in more than 100 different countries.
