The Florida House Inn is serving local seafood favorites for the High Tide Women's Weekend luncheon.
Susannah Sands, the historic inn’s talented chef, created a menu that will focus on the abundant seafood that is available locally. The menu will feature Fernandina shrimp and grits, Florida grouper with mango-orange dressing served on chilled greens, spinach soufflé, biscuits and a cold lemon soufflé for dessert.
The luncheon is one of several events being offered during the second annual High Tide Women’s Weekend. In collaboration with the National Park Conservation Association (NPCA, the nation’s leading voice for National Parks) three special events have been planned. The first, on Friday September 23, will offer a day long boat cruise to Cumberland Island (limited tickets $150). There will be three stops including a lunch and tour of the historic Greyfield Inn. Saturday morning a special tour of the Kingsley Plantation hosted by National Park representatives is being offered.
Saturday’s highlight will the luncheon at the Florida House Inn and will feature the NPCA’s executive vice-president Theresa Pierno as the keynote speaker. A membership to the NPCA is included in the $40 cost.
High Tide Women’s Weekend, scheduled each fall on Amelia Island, is a series of events for and about women.
