The History of Forfeng
The origin of the name Forfëng is from an old Norwegian family name. Forfëng was a champion log roller in the fjords of Norway, who was absolutely fearless when leaping from rolling log to rolling log. Anyone in the family even five generations later (that would be Heather T.) being regarded as a bit out of the box, was known as a Forfëng.
Heather Turner a.k.a. Forfeng is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and has spent over 20 years in the restaurant business.
