Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook author talk and book signing October 5, Carlyle on the Green

Please join me Wednesday, October 5 at the swanky Carlyle on the Green country club for my talk about the glories of Homegrown Long Island. I’ll share the backstories of the research and writing of the The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook — show a few videos of the Homegrown chefs creating their dishes with fresh cut and fresh-caught ingredients – and chefs in their gardens with the growers and artisanal food makers who inspire them.

I’ll share how this book is all about celebrating the love — and corresponding respect — the chefs have for the land, the growers and makers.

This talk will also honor three featured Homegrown artists who we recently lost from this world … Their leadership and work and menus continue to inspire us…

We’ll discuss how the Homegrown chefs also work tirelessly to preserve the land, cook with sustainable ingredients, and their work in children’s edible gardens in order to teach the next generation the importance of eating seasonally and locally. I also talk about the cultural and economic opportunity found in homegrown food tourism. Visitors will travel to experience unique homegrown menus and regional dishes and menus.

I’ll also give a sneak preview to my next book, Finishing Touches: The Art of Garnishing the Cocktail – a garden-to-glass, “drink your garden” perspective on food and drink! Use your garden to flavor and garnish your drinks.

In addition, our hosts, the Nassau County Librarians, have arranged for a delicious breakfast.

Book signing to follow.

Let’s celebrate the bounty of homegrown. See you there. Cheers!
