The Hamptons Kitchen
Seasonal Recipes Pairing Land and Sea
Seasonal, healthy dishes that embody the simple elegance of the Hamptons
The Hamptons is an exceptional enclave, where entertaining at home for small groups has long been a social staple.
The Hamptons exerts an influence far beyond New York—its unique mix of luxury and old-world charm, which surrounds the villages, dunes, and beaches, has become synonymous with a coveted American lifestyle. It’s also a foodie paradise where many residents take a back-to-basics approach to dining. They shop their local farmers’ markets, they enjoy fishing, and they keep kitchen gardens.
In The Hamptons Kitchen, simple recipes are deliciously paired with local wines and beers to make the most of local East End produce, seafood, meats, and cheeses. Divided into seasonal chapters, these recipes cover small plates, salads, large plates, and desserts. This is a celebration, through recipes and stories, of a beautiful place and a rustic-chic way of life that may be adapted to any local foodshed.
