Cod tongue, brewis, lassy mog and figgy duff pudding — just some of the staples of a traditional Newfoundland scoff. Don’t know what a scoff is? Never heard of those foods before?
Well, we’re not telling what they are. You’ll just have to find out for yourself.
And you can at A Schooner Inn, a half-hour drive outside of St. John’s in the town of Holyrood. Along with a night’s stay, you will savour a three-course scoff featuring delicacies from the land and sea.
A Schooner Inn is a restored 1884 with guest rooms that feature ensuite bathrooms. It’s not only a culinary getaway, but a historical look at Newfoundland’s heritage.
The package starts for $199, a saving of more than $40 off the regular price, and is valid from August 1 to September 1, 2012, on Mondays and Tuesdays.
