As you walk through the doors of The Table Culinary Studio, your senses are immediately engaged. The essence of community fills this former New London United Church, alive with a history of events that brought people together within its walls. What better place to congregate and share in a unique culinary experience than a space that was created for the gathering of family and friends?
The former New London United Church that now houses The Table Culinary Studio was built in 1953 through the generous donations of its members and supporters. In recognition of that community commitment, every effort has been made to preserve the building’s distinctive architectural features and to honour its origins, creating a true wow factor.
Exposed trusses and streams of natural light radiating through stained glass windows establish a leisurely atmosphere of relaxation. The original pulpit built by Marshall Constable has been incorporated into the new upper level of the building, providing a focal point for speakers addressing guests at private functions. A custom-built spiral staircase leads up to the church tower and a pastoral landscape view that must be seen to be fully appreciated – a panorama for photographers and other artists.
Prince Edward Island is known for its gentle, friendly atmosphere. It is also a place where family traditions remain alive and well. Our Island is a place where friends and family continue to gather around the kitchen table regardless of reason, regardless of season. That sense of gathering and belonging is what we strive to achieve when you visit us.
At The Table Culinary Studio, we’ll introduce you to traditional PEI recipes and the latest culinary innovations, always with a sense of humour. We’ll explain the effect and impact of each ingredient and answer any questions you may have. We’ll guide you step-by-step through cooking techniques as you produce your own meal of authentic food… made almost entirely of ingredients produced and harvested right here on our beautiful Island.
Once the meal is prepared, gather round our 12-foot long harvest table built by local artisan Todd Woodside using 140-year-old attic boards salvaged from a nearby home. We’ll share stories and captivate your imagination with accounts of Island fact and fiction over fine food.
Every Monday to Thursday evening, The Table offers a family style fine dining experience for up to 24 diners. The menu will showcase fresh, seasonal and local ingredients prepared by our in-house Chef.
Please check the schedule two weeks ahead of your visit to see what will be offered on the evening of your visit. This is an Island experience that you won’t soon forget! Reservations are required.
