|Acquisitions from a night at the Frobisher Inn|
I was told to bring some money, as local artists come around with carvings and art to sell while you are eating. Very low key: you can admire, and, if you want, ask how much. Really beautiful things went by the table. I came prepared (with cash!)
Over the course of the night, I acquired caribou antler earrings, a seal hairclip, a baleine whale necklace and a soapstone polarbear (from a dorset artist named Lucasie). I am very happy. There was also some amazing cribbage boards made from caribou antlers, but that guy escaped while my back was turned.... I will be keeping my eyes open for another!
Oh yes... the food was also great! The menu has a section for “Country Foods”. I had the muskox. Really tasty. I could easily become a fan. Actually, it was been a week of firsts: first seal meat and first seal broth, first caribou stew, first muskox, and first muktuk. I tried the last of these at the Community Feast that was held on Thursday night at the elementary school.
More on that later...
