North Fork Table & Inn (NFTI) owner Claudia Fleming, who will be honored at the Dan’s Chefs of the North Fork event on July 7, is appearing on CBS Sunday News this Sunday, June 17, at 8:50 a.m. In the live cooking segment, Fleming will demonstrate her Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler Scented with Rosewater while discussing her involvement with Dan’s Chefs of the North Fork.
The event, which takes place at The Halyard at Sound View in Greenport, gathers a dozen top chefs to celebrate Fleming and her many contributions to North Fork cuisine through a special, once-in-a-lifetime dinner for discerning food fans. Wine will flow throughout and a fabulous dessert will follow.
Along with running NFTI, Fleming is a cookbook author and is known as one of the county’s most respected pastry chefs, winning the James Beard Foundation award for Outstanding Pastry Chef in 2000. So it should be a thrill to learn from the master while watching on CBS Sunday.
Fleming studied the art of the pâtissier in France, and has plied her trade at some of New York’s legendary restaurants, including Union Square Café, Montrachet, Tribeca Grill and Gramercy Tavern, which she helped open in 1994.
