Kontokosta Winery, Slow Food East End and notable East End chefs come together to honor Gerry Hayden's exceptional culinary accomplishments, his ongoing commitment to nurturing our local, sustainable farm culture and his many efforts to promote education and awareness of good, clean, and fair food.


In the summer of 2013, Chef Hayden and The North Fork Table & Inn established a Farmers' Market behind the restaurant. Gerry is helping these farmers and at the same time, they are helping him fight ALS. You can help, too!
