So let’s head into the kitchen, turn up the music, and set the table, while we invite you to the Tastes of Sea Island.

From Your Table to Ours Contest

And the winner is...

Congratulations to winner Jane Bonvillian for her entry of the “Quinton Cheesecake” in the From Your Table to Ours contest. Jane’s paternal grandmother, Martha Quinton, was a test baker for Good Housekeeping back in the 1930’s and developed this recipe. Jane notes, “I have read and researched hundreds of cheesecake recipes and none have this specific combination of ingredients.” This family recipe is closely guarded, so watch for an announcement soon of where you can taste a bite of this delicious cheesecake!

Opening in 2001, Colt & Alison is named for Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison, the architects of Seaside, Sea Island’s second nine-hole golf course. Located at The Lodge, it doesn’t just serve the finest cuts of USDA wet- and dry-aged beef, the freshest local seafood, and locally sourced side dishes.
