Chef Tom Schaudel to offer farm-to-table recipes for Homecoming Farm event

Long Island Chef Tom Schaudel will be the culinary master for Homecoming Farm’s inaugural Cocktails in the Cloister event on September 27.

Cocktails in the Cloister will celebrate Homecoming Farm’s 22nd growing season while raising money to support the nonprofit’s work.

Schaudel, an East End resident, is the driving force behind several successful Long Island restaurants, including Jewel in Melville and Alure in Southold.

“I’m happy to participate at an event celebrating an organization that keeps it home-grown on Long Island,” Schaudel said.

In addition to his signature dishes, Schaudel will be mixing cocktails using honey from Homecoming Farm’s own hives.

“We are grateful for Tom’s generosity and honored to have him play such an integral role in our celebration,” says Elizabeth Keihm, Homecoming Farm’s Executive Director. “Cocktails in the Cloister will also include live music and a gorgeous setting that most Long Islanders have never experienced.”

The event will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Cloister Garden and Rosary Hall Chapel, generously provided by the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville.

Tickets are $200 per person. The money raised at Cocktails in the Cloister will support the work of Homecoming Farm, including its educational programming and its commitment to providing organic, locally grown food to The Interfaith Nutrition Network.

Homecoming Farm is located on the land of the Sisters of St. Dominic and is a Sponsored Ministry of the Congregation. For more information about Homecoming Farm and Cocktails in the Cloister, please visit
