Our Next Event is on Saturday August 24, 2019
A beautiful 6 Course Chef’s Tasting Dinner awaits. This event is filling up fast so please book early.
At our Tasting Dinners, our three chefs, Ed Rocchio, Sam Wood and Ana Lewis, team up to take YOU on a fine dining culinary extravaganza. These three highly trained chefs go all out to showcase the best of their best creations giving YOU the opportunity to have a small taste of six different high culinary art dishes, each paired with a different
premium wine. Portion sizes are small and are carefully measured out to ensure you are fully satisfied at the end of the meal without having to let your belt out a notch. These dinners are a prix fixe celebration of food, which can be enjoyed with or without the wine pairing. Dishes are individually plated and beautifully presented as pictured below.
Dinner begins at 7:00pm. You can make your reservation on line or by calling us on 239-600-0966. Please advise us at the time of your booking if you have any dietary requirements.

We have said goodbye to our last 2019 Summer Camp Kids Chefs
During the 7 weeks of our 2019 Summer Camps program, we had the honor and pleasure of working with 65 Junior Chefs who cut, chopped, diced, roasted, baked, sauteed their way through the summer and learned to make delicious scratch made healthy food from around the world.
During week 3, Katherine Marsh, from Fox 4 News was here reporting on the Camp. Here are videos of the broadcast.
