Ministers Island

Give Us Your Best

Food ideas & Recipe Competition

This summer Ministers Island will begin offering catering and food service. Visitors will be able to obtain a snack or meal, there will be elegant dinner parties similar to those hosted by Sir William Van Horne, and fun events like a Hawaiian Luau or Mexican Fiesta. We will also provide meals for wedding receptions, reunions, bus tours and parties. Our team is committed to offering great food that will delight adults and children, surprise the foodies, and encourage the residents of Charlotte County to visit us again and again.

Prizes valued at $5000.

Grand Prize includes a dinner party for 12 in the Van Horne Estate Bathhouse.

Send us your food ideas and recipes for our menus.  We are interested in traditional dishes, seafood, unique lunch offerings, party dishes, baked goods, desserts, snacks, and more.

Submit your entry before March 30.  Prizes will be announced at the Grand Opening of our kitchen in June, 2020.
