Chef Dominic Rice of Calissa in Water Mill will be appearing on FOX’s Good Day New York on Wednesday, July 18, at approximately 9:40 a.m. He’ll be leading a live cooking demonstration, making lobster bucatini with confit fennel, tomato, Aleppo pepper and mint, and talking about our upcoming Taste of Two Forks event.
Rice was a competitor in last year’s GrillHampton competition, a featured chef at this year’s Rosé Soirée and will also be featured at this year’s Taste of Two Forks. The latter event, which takes place this Saturday spotlights the bounty of both the North and South Forks, featuring tastings from countless top restaurants, chefs and purveyors. Hosted by celebrity chef, caterer and award-winning actor David Burtka, with entertainment provided by DJ Phresh, the event is sure to be a huge hit.
As a featured chef, Rice prides himself on taking advantage of the East End’s “bounty of produce, meats and seafood” and loves using local ingredients at the peak of the season. With this in mind, lobster bucatini is the perfect choice for a mid-summer meal. Self-described as the “Mikonos in the Hamptons,” Rice’s restaurant, Calissa, focuses on a variety of Greek dishes and boasts one of the largest selections of rosé in the Hamptons. Now in its second year, Calissa’s farm-to-table approach, live music and upbeat cuisine have proved very popular, and Rice is excited for what’s yet to come.
Tune in to FOX before 9:40 a.m. tomorrow morning to see Rice showcase his skills and to hear what he has to say about Dan’s Taste of Two Forks. It’s sure to be a great segment!
