A MENU** FOR THE
"The Chambers of the Sea"
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red & brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot, 1920

WHEN THE EARLY Spanish, Russian, and English trappers, traders, and explorers first landed on what is now Washington and British Columbia, they found a rich native culture with one foot on land and the other
in the sea.
“When the tide is out, the table is set,” was a local saying that codified much about life in the region. The rich seafood heritage allowed not only for a varied diet, but also lent the Salish peoples the luxury of living in sturdy, artfully carved cedar long-houses in permanent villages on protected bays. Traveling by canoe, they harvested the myriad fish that plied the coastal waters. Great mounds of discarded shells called "middens" still mark the sites of these villages.
As winter's cold waters warm, we turn our attention once again to this magical time of the year when great Neptune himself helps us re-imagine and prepare this living treasure of the Pacific Northwest.
Join us for this special seafood feast, offered only once a year. Reserve your place today.
