Bev and Joe Dunn

Island Merchant Community Supper – June 10th

by Slow Food Cape Cod on May 18, 2009

Join us for our next Community Supper at The Island Merchant in Hyannis, Wednesday June 10th. A special menu has been created for Slow Food – see below (yum!),  and we will have the chance to meet Les Hammilla, owner of Barnstable SeaFarms. Bev and Joe Dunn are the dynamic duo behind the scenes at the Island Merchant.  Their focus is to infuse local Cape Cod foods with an Island flair. Bev runs the front of the house, while Joe is our man in the kitchen, leading the troops. You do not have to just take my word on it – they were honored with  The Best of Boston’s 2007   award for Fusion food. Island Merchant is also  going to be included in an upcoming spot on Chronicle with Anthony Everett. In addition to the regional menu’s, they provide a home base for local musicians which earned them a spot on Cape Cod’s “A List”.
Speaking of the “A List”, we have a guest speaker, Les Hammilla, from Barnstable SeaFarms, to talk to use about his endeavor in growing oysters and littlenecks in the cold waters of Cape Cod. He also made the “A List”, their business will harvest per order, ensuring the freshest possible shellfish – we will be sampling in our first course.
Can’t wait!!
