The Fall Market Dinner at 18 Bay Restaurant
Come celebrate and savor the bounty of the 2016 Fall harvest with Slow Food East End and 18 Bay Restaurant
SUNDAY, October 23rd (5 -8pm)
@ 18 Bay Restaurant in Shelter Island
18 Bay’s Chefs / Owners Elizabeth Ronzetti and Adam Kopels alchemy for creating memorable fare with the freshest ingredients grown and raised on the East End is legendary. 18 Bay Restaurant is a recent recipient of the Snail of Approval Award. For this year’s Fall Market Dinner, Chefs Elizabeth and Adam’s menu will spotlight the Long Island Cheese Pumpkin.
This year, the Long Island Regional Seed Consortium (LIRSC) launched The Long Island Cheese Pumpkin Project as an effort to raise awareness of this local variety. The LI Cheese Pumpkin has been slowly disappearing from commercial seed catalogs since the 1970’s and is currently listed among the 200 foods in Slow Food USA’s “Ark of Taste.” Slow Food East End is proud to be an “ambassador” of the Long Island Cheese Pumpkin by helping to save this indigenous species.
The Slow Food East End community will honor Susan and Myron Levine by presenting our second Carlo Petrini Award for their generous support of charitable programs that promote good farming practices, healthy eating, education and a sustainable environment through the Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation. This includes Slow Food East End’s Master Farmer Program and support for Edible School Gardens on the East End.
