Loved the beaches, hated the food." It's a common complaint made by people returning home after an island vacation. To help those who are desperate to love both we will begin a series featuring different island foods. We will do 4 different islands a night and continue till we cover most of the world’s islands. If I make it till the end, I will be thrilled to have lived that long!!

Tonight, we will return to my old haunt, NYC!!!! We will dine on The Lakehouse of Great South Bay Long Island’s vegetable salad with creamed mushrooms, asparagus, arugula, poached egg and Humbolt Fog, Staten Island’s Nurnberger Bierhaus’ cherry venison sausage with German potato salad, Manhattans Le Bernadins’ roast Arctic char with black olive potatoes and melted cherry tomatoes, and finish with City Island’s Dubrovnik palacinke (crepes) with homemade jam. New York vineyards will be tasted.

This class meets on the main level in the Education Wing.

Our cooking classes are held in our commercial kitchen. You will be seated at a counter on countertop stools, so please wear comfortable clothing. Layers are best, the temperature fluctuates often.

Born in New York, Joseph Cizynski almost immediately started gaining kitchen experience thanks to his mother and Aunt Dorothy who shared their passion and knowledge of food with him. Joseph attended Fairfield University where he played baseball and for two summers played in the Cape League, thus beginning his love for Cape Cod. Upon graduation from college, and a ball related injury, Joseph took to the Culinary Institute of America where at the age of 26, became Chef/Owner of Café du Bec Fin located in Old Greenwich, CT. Joseph immediately transformed it into a French Seafood restaurant and received three-3 Star reviews from the New York Times and was the first Connecticut restaurateur to receive the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for ten consecutive years. Café du Bec Fin was the venue for numerous wine tasting dinners including the members of the Mondavi, Krug and Dujac families. Several years ago, Joseph, opened a boutique wine shop located in Westchester County and has shared his knowledge of wine and food pairings hosting numerous wine tastings, dinners and various other events. Joseph and his wife, Betsy, bought a home in Chatham ten years ago and are now making plans to live there year-round. He looks forward to sharing his experiences, food and wines with you!
