Dan’s Papers culinary columnist Silvia Lehrer will be giving a reading and book signing from her book Savoring the Hamptons: Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Island’s East End, with hors d’oeuvres tastings from the book, on Sunday December 9, from 2 to 5:pm, at Lieb Cellars new tasting room in Cutchogue.
Lehrer‘s column, “The Simple Art of Cooking” can be found in Dan’s Papers every week.
Read the latest on Chef Tom Colicchio in Silvia’s column this week. Word is that Chef Keith Luce has left the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport and that Chef Alex Algieri (formerly of North Fork Oyster Company) is in the kitchen there. Chef and farmer extraordinaire Patty Gentry is advising Isabella Rossellini on how to start a farm of her own on Rossellini’s Bellport property. Gentry’s mentors, Bette Lacina and Dale Haubrich of Dale & Bette’s Farm in Bridgehampton, are as proud as a hen with a chick.
