Sumo Stew Rockland

Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 6:00pm
Fog Bar and Cafe

SUMO STEW (#SUMOSTEW) is heading northeast to Rockland, Maine! Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell ( to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (, a wonderfully multi-faceted cooking store and center for culinary education.

The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

On Thursday, March 16th, the Farnsworth Art Museum's [Collective] membership group is bringing SUMO STEW to Fog Bar and Cafe, at 328 Main Street.
Don't be left out in the (non-sumo stew) cold!
