Island to Table ~


Five local chefs were challenged to create appetizers and entrées using only ingredients from Long Island’s land or waters.

They didn’t disappoint.

When the first-ever Island to Table fundraiser dinner was wrapping up Sunday night at New Village, the chefs were treated to a standing ovation.


And that was the whole idea, to draw attention to our local food sources, as well as to raise funds for Homegrown Change, which will use the money to initiate gardening and sustainability projects in the Patchogue-Medford and South Country school districts, as well as at the Patchogue-Medford Library. was the event’s media sponsor, with volunteers from St. Joseph’s College and elsewhere in the community helping serve the six courses, each of which were paired with a wine or craft beer from Blue Point Brewing Co., which had its head brewer on-hand.
