Two different industrial kitchen options were discovered this past month. One is larger than the other and may be the lucky candidate given it’s size. The smaller kitchen presents less of a financial challenge however. We believe we can lease one or the other kitchens before summer’s end.
Results of Fund Raiser #2
The results of the Hyannis Golf Club held July 26 was encouraging. We are pleased to report that the turnout for the event matched the size of our first fundraiser at Mac's Seafood in Provincetown. Chef Scott Allen of the Hyannis Golf Club generously donated the appetizers for the event. Our thanks also go Liquor & More in Dennis, Chatham Bars Inn, Hy-Line Cruises, Chatham Monomoy Theatre, and Kim Greene for generous donations.

Warm Culinary Regards,
Thanks to our hosts at three fins coffee roasters!
three fins coffee roasters is a small batch coffee roaster and coffeehouse owned by Catherine Bieri and Ron Reddick. They roast "specialty coffee" which means their coffee is top graded by Q Graders. Every coffee drink and every bag of beans they sell is freshly roasted onsite. You can't get fresher than that! For them - it's all about the bean! They also serve a small selection of pastries and are looking to expand their offerings this winter with locally made foods such as soups and small prepared dishes.
They love coffee and they love talking about coffee. So, if you are interested in learning about coffee roasting and how to make a great cup at home, look out for their upcoming educational classes in February. They also host entertainment events. In fact, on Friday 26 January they are hosting a Comedy Improv night from 7 - 9 pm. They are located at 581 Main St. (Rt. 28) West Dennis. You can learn more about three fins coffee roasters at their website www.threefinscoffee.com
