Reef netting, salmon on Lummi Island

Lummi Island will play host to traditional reef netting and a salmon bake sale as part of Cedarbrook Lodge’s 2016 Culinary Adventures on July 30.

Guests will meet with Roy Breiman, author and culinary director of Cedarbrook Lodge, for a tour of the famed Willows Inn and Nettle Farm B&B to meet the signature flock of blue-footed chickens. Riley Starks of Nettles Farm B&B and Lummi Island Wild, a fishery committed to promoting the respectful and responsible harvesting of wild sockeye and pink salmon, will lead guests as they learn to reef net, a historical salmon fishing method practiced for centuries by Native American tribes using cedar canoes and nets to catch wild Pacific salmon. Breiman and Starks will share preparation techniques while baking the fresh-caught salmon over a beach bonfire as guests enjoy the rural island sunset.

Tickets are $175 per person and include transportation to and from Cedarbrook Lodge, which is located a mile from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
