Love is just the start at Local Connections’ Chef’s Table


There’s always been a sense of romance surrounding the union of food and wine, it is a bond that has survived throughout the ages. 

The right pairing, like a good love affair, can become a sensory delight.

Oysters and Prosecco, duck leg and Shiraz, and burnt peach frangipane with a sticky dessert wine… they’re all partnerships that compliment one another, and they’re all pairings that will feature at this year’s first 2024 Chef’s Table.

The popular event, at Local Connections, will this month be toasting to love on campus.
