The Table Culinary Studio is New London’s award-winning culinary studio with a focus on experiential cuisine. The winner of the 2017 Taste Our Island Award, The Table is dedicated to using and promoting the local foods grown and harvested right here on Prince Edward Island. Cooking classes, hands-on experiences and evening restaurant dining at The Table have also resulted in international media recognition for bringing local history, food and culture together.
During the day, The Table offers hands-on culinary classes and experiences that showcase fresh Island ingredients, teach cooking techniques, and immerse visitors in the food and tradition of PEI through interactive demonstrations and trips to local farms and fisheries.
At night, The Table is transformed into an intimate Island restaurant for up to 18 guests, filling the old church with tantalizing aromas and the sound of shared stories and enjoyment as guests gather together around the large harvest table and share a family-style meal and evening’s entertainment with old friends and new.
Come join us in the kitchen or around the table to experience fine food, community and laughter.
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.
