Savor Turtle Island 2015 - A Month of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is all about gratitude and celebration of abundance. Food is at the heart of this celebration and Turtle Island boasts a cornucopia of the freshest produce grown on the island and seafood caught daily from the surrounding waters. This year, we want to explore and share this abundance with our guests for an entire month. Between November 10th and December 10th, we are extremely privileged to be hosting four incredible chefs from around the world, each of whom will bring their own individual styles and culinary expertise to the Island.
