CRANBERRY ISLES — The Great Cranberry Island Historical Society is fortunate to have an international chef operating their Hitty’s Cafe at the Cranberry House Museum.

Visitors to the island can ride aboard a free shuttle operated by the museum from the town dock to Cranberry House. After viewing the new museum exhibit or hiking the nature trail, they can relax at the café and dine under colorful umbrellas on the outdoor deck next to three beautiful gardens.

Chef Cezar Ferreira is at Hitty’s Cafe for his second summer, taking a break from his winter position as chef at the Mooring’s Tennis and Yacht Club in Vero Beach, Fla. Ferreira was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but has lived much of his life in New York. He attended schools in New York and received his culinary training at the New School in New York City. He has worked in many country clubs from Connecticut to Florida and in restaurants in New York City and Palm Beach, Fla.

While Ferreira’s specialty is Mediterranean cuisine, he has adapted his menu to island tastes with handmade dressings and lobster specialties. If he isn’t busy, he might show his photographs of Brazil.

Hitty’s Cafe is open daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will remain open until Columbus Day weekend in October. Ferreira also will do catering to order. Call 244- 7845.
