AN UNPRECEDENTED CULINARY FEAST…

– Guy Reuge – Sandbar, Three Village Inn, and Lessing’s
– Tom Schaudel – Jewel, Be-Ju, Alure, and aMano
– Michael Meehan – Radio Radio
– Ricky Passerelli – Bobby Van’s Steakhouses
– Maurizio Venditelli – Il Bacco
– Rosario Safina – Da Rosario Organic Truffles
– Judy Racz – Dino Vlachich and Full House Organics
– Leisa Dent – LL Dent Southern Food and Catering
– Michael Fallon – Macayla Michael Desserts
– Wayne Cafariella – Kings Coast Coffee
– Philip Stone Caterer

“I’m proud and delighted to be a part of of the Sands Point Preserve Butterfly Ball. What could be more fun than working at this national historic treasure with all these great chefs, farmers, and fishermen?” – Tom Schaudel

** Five Long Island wineries will provide perfect pairings for the chefs’ dishes: Paumanok Vineyards, McCalls Wines, Raphael Winery, Wolffer Estate, and Bedell Cellars. They were tapped by Post Wine & Spirits’ owner Mike Douglass, who leads a weekly evening course, “A Study in Wine,” a survey of wines around the world, in Hempstead House.
