Dan’s Papers July 1, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 149 New York Wines Coming to Riverhead: Empire State Cellars By now you’ve probably heard that some of the best Rieslings in America are being made in the Finger Lakes region in upstate New York. You probably haven’t heard as much about the wines of Niagara wine country – on the New York side of the border – a fairly new region that is doing some interesting things with Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. At this point, unless you visit those regions in person, it can be a challenge to get these wines on Long Island. I see a few wines from the Finger Lakes at shops occasionally, but never wines from Niagara or the Hudson Valley or Lake Erie, or any of New York’s other regions. Empire State Cellars, a new shop to be opened later this summer by Peconic Bay Winery at the Tanger Outlet Center in Riverhead, is going to change all that. Peconic Bay Winery general manager Jim Silver said the North Fork producer will open the store as the second of five tasting rooms it is permitted by its Farm Winery license. This is much more than a satellite tasting room, however. Under New York State Liquor Authority rules, the winery will be permitted not only to sell its own wines at Empire State Cellars, but cider, spirits and wines from other wineries as well – as long as they are New York AVA (American Viticultural Area) products produced in New York State. “We intend to represent the very best the state has to offer, as well as great values – since this is an outlet store – at competitive prices,” Silver said. The store will stock wines from every corner of New York wine country – Lake Erie, Thousand Islands, Adirondacks, Hudson Valley, Niagara, Finger Lakes and Long Island. The concept for Empire State Cellars isn’t a new one. There are and have been wine shops that focus on New York wines or feature large New York selections – most famously the now-closed Vintage NY stores in Manhattan and New Paltz. But the timing of this opening – when “drinking local” is more popular than ever – may be the key. It’s what Silver is banking on. “There’s a growing interest in New York wines that is unprecedented so I think the time is right for this type of store. There’s no Jack Daniels, no Smirnoff and no Cavit Pinot Grigio in this store. We have to exist on people’s growing interest in the local wine and the local economy too. It’s not going to be easy I’m sure, but with the support of the industry behind us we should all do well.” Silver said that they are targeting an August 1 opening.

    Red, Right and BlueUp or down, good or bad, through thick or thin,

    its great to be an American. Most people I know still choke up when they hear The Star Spangled Banner because in spite of everything, we love who we are, and we love our country.

    Now, if we can only pull away from the political correctness that threatens to eradicate any individ-ual opinions that stray too far from what is accept-able. Ironically, political correctness jeopardizes the freedom of speech it was built on. People have confused acceptance with approval. We all have the right to be accepted for who we are, however, we do not have the right to demand approval. I think thats where people get in trouble. For example, the Catholic Church is taking a P.C. beating because it wont get in line and support liberal causes. Theyacknowledge and accept changes in society, and they have the right to try to change them from within, but they dont have to approve of these social chang-es, ever. We seem to have forgotten that. Today, the church is being hounded more than the Klu Klux Klan. Recently a movement has started to outlaw circumcision. So now the P.C. machine will take on the Jewish community in America. And whos next?

    Will the P.C. machine be allowed to roll over every belief that doesnt match theirs until all individual-ism is crushed? Nah, that would be fascism, and that could never happen here....

    Thats the kind of thing Im thinking of this Fourth of July because each family is a microcosm of America. Theres a full range of political opinions in every family. Theres always one couple who seems to do everything right and are secretly smug about it. Theres always family members we want to kill, wound or maim because they are in the red zone on the Idiot Scale. And theres always one family mem-ber who seems to be blessed with an extraordinary amount of luck that they dont deserve. Still, every-one gets invited to the barbeque and all is peaceful until the liquor hits, or somebody brings up who owes them money, whichever comes first. Then, its every man for himself.

    John, you didnt invite your Uncle Phil did you?Hes my uncle. How could I not invite him?Yeah, but that whole thing where he gets drunk

    and tells people he can talk to animals is creepy.

    No, thats Uncle Benny. Uncle Phil is the one who has to stay 100 yards away from schools.

    Oh, hes the flasher?Yup, hes the family flasher. But hes

    really good on the barbeque. Well keep the one who talks to the ani-

    mals away from Mrs. Whiskers. I dont know what he said to her last time he was here, but she wouldnt eat and got very depressed afterward. I had to take her to the vet and get a prescription for medical catnip for her.

    Did it work?Like a charm. Shes relaxed all the time and eats

    everything in sight.What about your cousin, Moon Duck, is she still

    on that vegetarian kick?No, its worse, shes a vegan now. I bought her

    a bag of organic dirt. She can grow something and eat it.

    That will take time.So does figuring out what shell eat and cooking

    it correctly with the pot handle pointing towards Mecca or something.

    What about Joe and Peggy? You did invite them right? They always bring a lot of extra beer.

    Of course I invited them. Theyre my only normal relatives. And John, please remind your father not to show anyone his heart surgery scars during din-ner.

    Okay. I love Fourth of July. Its fun to have every-one together.

    It sure is, Babe.

    Its here the much-anticipated weekend of July 4th, 2011! Its a weekend to entertain or be entertained. My homage to the birth of America is to celebrate with an all-American do-ahead menu. To begin, start with chips and dips of your choice.

    Red, white and blue potato salad laden with fresh herbs and a tasty vinaigrette can be prepared up to a day ahead. Traditional American summertime favorites include burgers and ribs on the grill. If its burgers for the Fourth, season them with finely chopped shallots, a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce for a pound of ground chuck, salt, pepper and a splash of cream yummy with sauted onions and a dollop of ketchup. For long and slow-cooked ribs on the grill I turn to Steven Raichlens TheBarbecue Bible (Workman, 1998), for his baby back ribs. Memphis style. Unless youre a barbecue guru I highly recommend that you reference Raichlens techniques for foolproof grilling. Quench your thirst with ice tea and/or local beers from Southampton

    Publick House.Chilled watermelon to cool and clear the palate

    is always welcome, but take the sweet ending to another level with a parfait of white chocolate mousse and fresh local berries. And have a Happy Fourth!

    RED, WHITE AND BLUE POTATO SALADYield: about 8 cups or 10 to 12 servings

    2 1/2 pounds white, red and blue fingerling potatoes or an equal mix of Yukon gold, new

    red and purple potatoes, scrubbed cleanKosher salt2 to 3 tablespoons dry white wine1/2 cup diced red onion2 teaspoons grainy Dijon mustard3 tablespoons red wine vinegar3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh chives

    1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by and inch or two. Cover pan and bring to a boil over high heat; stir about 1 tablespoon salt into the water. Adjust heat to medium-high and cook the potatoes at a brisk simmer for 16 to 18 minutes until tender when pierced with a knife. Drain in a colander and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with white wine and toss gently to mix. With fork and sharp knife cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces (I do this right in the bowl).

    2. Meanwhile soak the onion in cold water in a small bowl for about 20 minutes (this softens the bite of the onion). Drain and dry in a clean kitchen towel. Add diced onion to the potatoes.

    3. Whisk the Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar and olive oil in a separate bowl and add herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Scrape the dressing into the potato mixture and stir gently to mix with a rubber spatula. Taste for seasoning and transfer to a covered container; refrigerate. Can be prepared up to one day ahead. Bring to room temperature

    Silvia (continued from page 152)and taste for seasoning before serving.

    BABY BACK RIBS, MEMPHIS STYLESteven Raichlen wrote

    the ultimate cookbook on barbecue!

    Serves 6 to 8

    4 to 6 pounds baby back ribs1/4 cup paprika1 1/2 tablespoons freshly

    ground pepper1 1/2 tablespoons firmly

    packed dark brown sugar1 tablespoon kosher salt1 1/2 teaspoon each celery

    salt, cayenne, garlic powder, dry mustard, ground cumin

    1. Remove the thin papery skin from the back of the ribs by pulling it off in a sheet with your fingers, using the corner of a kitchen towel to gain a secure grip, or with pliers. Combine the ingredients for the rub in a small bowl and stir to mix. Rub two thirds of this mixture on both sides of the ribs, transfer to a Pyrex (lasagna-size) dish, cover and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours.

    2. Set up grill for indirect grilling by placing a large drip pan on the bottom center grate. Place charcoal or wood chips in the bottom of a chimney starter (most favored by grill buffs) and pile a few sheets of crumpled newspaper on top. Place the

    chimney on the upper grate. Touch a lit match to the paper and soon the coals will be blazing. When the coals are ready this could take about 20 minutes lift the chimney and dump out the coals on either side of the drip pan. Place the food on the grate. If using a charcoal grill, preheat to medium. If using a gas grill, pre-heat grill to high: when smoke appears, reduce the heat to medium.

    3. If using wood chips such as hickory or mesquite presoak chips in a smoker box (for gas) or aluminum loaf pan (for charcoal) for 20 minutes, then place over the ashen coals. For charcoal preheat grill to medium and toss half the wood chips on

    the coals. For gas, preheat grill to high: when smoke appears, reduce heat to medium.

    4. Arrange ribs on the hot grate over the drip pan or unheated side if gas. Cover the grill and smoke-cook the ribs for 1 hour.

    5. Toss remaining chips on the fire if using charcoal or wood chips. Continue cooking the ribs until tender and almost done, about 1/2 to 1 hour longer for baby back ribs, somewhat longer for spareribs. If using charcoal, keep adding a few coals to the side of the grill until meat is completely tender and has shrunk back from the ends of the

    bones. Transfer to a cutting board and slice between the ribs for serving.

    PATRIOTIC PARFAITThe Fourth of July means picnics, parties and

    tasty treats. If parfait glasses are not available simply top the berries with the creamy white

    chocolate mousse.Serves 6

    3 to 3 1/2 ounces fine quality white chocolate1/2 cup thick crme frache2 tablespoons sugar1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and rinsed1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsedGrated rind of 1 lemon1 to 2 teaspoons brandy, optionalExtra whole strawberries for garnish

    1. Break up the chocolate into small pieces and put into a mixing bowl large enough to straddle a saucepan. Put about 1/4 cup water in the saucepan and place the bowl with the chocolate over the pan. Place over low heat to melt the chocolate. Watch carefully as chocolate melts, then stir to a smooth cream. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

    2. Whip the crme frache with the sugar until fluffy. Add the cooled chocolate in a thin steady stream whisking until smooth.

    3. Slice the strawberries and mix with the blueberries. Add lemon rind and brandy, if using, and gently stir to mix. To assemble the parfaits, alternately layer the mousse with the mixed berries in parfait glasses or top berries with the mousse. Garnish with whole strawberries, if desired.

    By Stacy DermontRecently I went to dinner at

    The Coast Grill in Noyac with two colleagues. I dont know why I hadnt been to the Coast Grill before. Its a great location for a restaurant, its right on the water. I started things off with a Frozen Coconut Mojito. Wow! Refreshing and so very minty Id never thought of combining coconut and mint. Colleague D enjoyed a Key Lime Cooler of Bacardi Limon, Triple Sec, Sour Mix and lime. Colleague E went with a Watermelon Margarita of tequila, fresh watermelon pure, triple sec and a splash of sour mix. She said it was the most watermelony drink shed ever had very melony, not watery at all. We sampled each others drinks and agreed that wed all made the right choices for ourselves, with our server Omars guidance.

    Colleague D commented, This is a great scene, a great feel, look at that green boat!

    We quite enjoyed the Gorgonzola Garlic Bread with its creamy fondue and freshly snipped chives. Colleague D found his Long Island Duck Confit with lentils, sundried cherries and port reduction excellent, meat-falling-off-the-bone tasty.

    Colleague E found her BLT Caesar Salad with hearts of Romaine, sundried tomatoes and bacon lardons chopped to bite-size pieces very flavorful. She raved about her entre, the Sage Brined Pork

    Chop as being very moist and very good.Colleague D was elated by his Coca Cola BBQ

    Boneless Short Ribs with fingerling potatoes. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Outrageous! was all he could say.

    I started with the Nothing But Crab Cake, which hit me like sunshine itself. Scrumptious. The orange segments and fennel slaw were a perfect foil to the crab.

    I ordered the Seasonal Vegetable Fricassee of French lentils, sundried tomatoes, fresh herbs, asparagus, broccoli rabe, peas, carrots and goat

    cheese. It was both fresh and rich and the goat cheese gave it a bit of welcome sharpness.

    We all agreed that wed like to come back to sample more of Chef Brian Cheeings work though Colleague D said that he might have the Coca Cola BBQ Boneless Short Ribs every time.

    For dessert I had Coast Grills New York Cheesecake with Wild Berry Compote. Pure creaminess, theres nothing you wont want to inhale here.

    Colleague D went with the Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding and a cappuccino. He described the pudding as delicious but followed up with yum-o and said that it has real banana flavor.

    Colleague E had the Chocolate Truffle Cake with Cappuccino Gelato and Chocolate Sauce and a strong regular coffee. She found the cake just-out-of-

    the-oven warm, fluffy and creamy.In addition to wine from Italy, France and

    California, the Coast Grill Wine List offers Wlffer Ros. Our server offered his detailed opinions on tequila, which we found fascinating but forgot completely while consuming our cocktails.

    The Coast Grill is a great place to kick back with friends, casually or in high style, as the mood strikes. Its comfortable, open and welcoming.

    Restaurant Review: GeorgicaBy Sharon McKee

    We arrived early on a rainy Friday night, and our well-dressed hostess showed us to a table in front of the fireplace. Its normally my favorite restaurant seat, but at Georgica in Wainscott there are so many rooms and levels, so many comfortable spots for people watching, its difficult to make a choice. When you book your reservation (and thats a must this time of year), you may request a view of Georgica Pond, or a table in one of the patio roomsor a place near the bar where the action amps up after 11 p.m. You know somethings up when you pass a step and repeat backdrop for red-carpet photo ops as you enter the restaurant. Georgica is a celebrity hangout and private party venue of the first order, but the restaurants real success is due to its simply wonderful food.

    Our delightful server Feather advised us that Chef Seth Levine had prepared a tasting menu so we could sample more dishes. We were happy to be in his hands! My dining partner started with a glass of the Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon and declared it delicious. Co-manager Yanni Emmanouilidis told us the original wine list was commercial, year two it was all boutique and this year its a combination of both. There are some local wines and a good selection of California, French and Italian.

    The tasting menu began with a miniature summer salad of heirloom tomatoes and watermelon slices, stacked like silver dollars, in Athena dressing drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It was sweet and cool,

    crunchy yet moistjust luscious. Next we sampled a Salmon Tartar and Rock Shrimp Tempura with Sriracha Aioli (my favorite). The Lobster Bisque, served in a demitasse cup, was buttery and rich with a big chunk of lobster. It was just enough for the tasting menu, but next time Ill order a bowl!

    Between courses Chef Levine came out to greet us. His is a story that would make a terrific film! A native of Great Neck, he studied cooking in Florence, but then landed a job at Goldman Sachs. After seven years at Goldman he left to pursue his true calling, culinary arts. On the very day he left he saw a crowd gathering on the street and discovered it was an audition for Hells Kitchen. Not only did he appear on the television show, he met his partner Robert Hesse there, and together with two more partner/investors, they opened Georgica three years ago.

    The personable stockbroker-turned-chef calls his cooking Modern American Cuisine, and hes clearly

    proud of the teams accomplishments. He asked us to try his signature appetizer: Seared Diver Scallop with Corn Pudding, Quail Egg, Maple Glazed Bacon and Apple Cider Reduction. The combination was silken, sweet and delicious.

    For our main course we were presented with a perfectly Grilled Filet Mignon in a Red Wine Demi-Glace and a 1 pound lobster removed from the shell and mixed with shrimp, scallops and crabmeat. Divine. Accompaniments included truffle-infused shoestring potatoes, a killer lobster macaroni and cheese with truffle oil, and a corn pudding with a crme brule-like crunch on top. Im very involved with

    truffles right now, joked Chef. Who knows, next week it may be something else!

    Clearly we had no room for dessert, but we could not be impolite! Feather presented us with a trio of cupcakes and a perfect cloud of berries-in-cream. Another signature of the restaurant, red-velvet cake lollipops, stood like little soldiers saluting us as we left.

    I snagged a couple for the kids, and vowed to return to Georgica soon.

    By Stacy DermontHeres a tasty piece of advice: RACE to Race Lane!Last week I went to Race Lane in East Hampton

    for dinner with a colleague who was just back from Italy.

    I went there for drinks a while back and quite enjoyed the atmosphere. Race Lane is big, open and welcoming. My RL Bloody Mary was very peppery, in a good way, tasty.

    Ah, but dinner, thats REALLY something to write home about.

    Executive Chef Dana Lamel is new to the area, passionate and excited.

    Diners should be very excited about this chefs workhes one to watch.

    Im glad Ill have another chance to chat with him at Dans Taste of Two Forks on July 16. Lamel is very open about sharing his recipes and methods. Of course using the very best ingredients is key.

    I was feeling fruity and so started with a glass of Valckenbergs 2009 Madonna Reisling.

    This is just a brief listing of what we ENJOYED foodwise....

    The BEER BRAISED SHORTRIB with poached egg and shoestring potatoes were meltingly delish. The JUMBO LUMP CRAB CAKE with frise, basil crme frache and chili oil was pure crab, with just a touch of Panko crumbs on the outside for crispness.

    A tender and flavorful ROASTED FREE RANGE HALF CHICKEN with a deliciously cheesy farro risotto and cipollini agrodolce. My colleague wisely took most of it home.

    The PORK CHOP is double cut! With fingerling potatoes, bravas aoli and blueberry mustardo, it is so moist and tender! My first move was to undouble cut it. That was only a start. It is, as Chef calls it, a killer pork chop.

    The TUNA TABBOULEH is yellow fin with the additional texture of cracked wheat, with harissa vinaigrette and mint yogurt is one of Lamels signature dishes. It contains an interesting and satisfying mlange of textures and flavors.

    The LOBSTER & SHRIMP CEVICHE poached, served in RL Bloody Mary roux and served over avocado pure is a perfect pairing.

    Chef just got in some LOCAL STRIPED BASS so we sampled a filet, cooked to perfection.

    We had to try the feature of the weekCrescent Farms DUCK LEG CONFIT under fois gras and a rainbow of micro greenit was out of this world.

    CHOCOLATE/CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD PUDDING served with ice cream and whipped creama big chuck of chocolate bread pudding perfection.

    The Race Lane Wine List is extensive but well-chosen thanks to co-owner and wine expert Jay

    Plumeri. And there are serious bargains to be had by the bottlelike the 2008 Chardonnay from Trinitas Cellars for $35. Plumeri believes in making great wine available at every price level. In addition to European wines and local wines from Raphael, this list is rich with Australian and New Zealand wines in honor of Plumeris beautiful wife Rowaida. Shes from Down Under, but quite likes NZ wines toobut not for the next four monthsthe Plumeris have a baby on the way. Congratulations are in order all around at Race Lane!

    Next time I visit Race Lane, I plan to try the RACE LANE CHEESE PLATEChefs selection of cheeses with roasted grapes, honeycomb and homemade crostini!

    I trust this chef completelybring it on!

    Race Lane Restaurant, 31 Race Lane, East Hampton, 631-324-5022.

    Chef Dana Lamel invites local farmers and fishermen to contact himor just stop by and knock on the back door. Hed like to source all that he can locally.

    By Stacy DermontI love to take a drive out to Montauk

    once in a while. When I know theres good food waiting at The End, the drive is even more pleasant.

    Id been hearing good things about South Edison since it opened last June. But my family and I were unprepared for how good Chef Todd Mittgangs food is.

    In fact, everything is well done at South Edison. The dcor is fun, minimal and funky. A graphic red lobster dominates on walls and staff t-shirts. The solid orange bicycle above the coffee bar is a nice touch.

    Our server, Eimear, was efficient and eager to please. A friendly, attractive staff is always a good start.

    Husband began with a Greenacres, composed of Hendricks gin, cucumber, watermelon and lemon thyme. He pronounced it good and moved on to red wine, Truchards 2008 Pinot Noir. I indulged in an LiV Basil Gimlet. The vodka was mixed with basil, black pepper and fresh lime. It was pleasantly sour; basil is the grown-ups mint.

    South Edisons Wine List contains a selection of Californians and wines from France and Italy, as well as local favorites from Channing Daughters, Roanoke and Wlffer. Each wine is followed by a helpful flavor profile. Beers include Sixpoint, Southampton Double White, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Porkslap, among others.

    I started with a Summer Salad that was remarkably flavorful and remarkably fresh, gorgeously crowned with pea shoots. Asparagus, fennel, fava beans, pea pure, pistachios, piave, lemon black pepper vinaigrette, yum.

    Teenage Boy latched onto ordering the Olive Oil Braised Octopus Tacos right away. The octopus, Maitake mushroom, roasted tomato and guajillo chili salsa, pickled red onion, crme and queso cotija earned the singular comment between bites, This is so good!

    Husband started with a Spicy Tuna BLT Chapula. Smoked bacon, heirloom tomato, Serrano chili and crema inside a corn tortilla. He found it quite

    spicy, but it was gone in a flash. He moved on to the Grilled Local Swordfish Kebob. He characterized the caramelized Santa Claus melon chunks as really interesting in a great way. Served with curried beluga lentils, shallots, crispy chili prosciutto salad and fresh garbanzo beans, the swordfish clearly delighted. I only got a small spoonful of curried bits.

    I tried the South Edison Lobster Roll. The thin, crab-seasoned fries are quite goodTeenage Boy inhaled most of them. The fresh warmed butter and black garlic mayonnaise effectively gilded the lilythe lobster chunks were particularly tender and sweet.

    For dessert my guys each got a decaf cappuccino. Husband stopped there. Teenage Boy forged ahead to the Ice Cream Sandwich. The big scoop of salted

    caramel ice cream between remarkably thin but deeply rich brownies was sublime. I thoroughly enjoyed my Carrot Cake Cupcake. I had them hold the funfetti, which made for precisely the right ratio of cream cheese dressing to nicely textured, nutty cake. The candied ginger on the side allows one to precisely control ones ginger ratio. So technical, so perfect. And heres the icing on the cake, this cupcake is muffin-size.

    By Stacy DermontI took another editor to lunch at Nichols in East

    Hampton on a Thursday afternoon. Other Editor has long been a regular of this restaurant over the years and she spoke highly of its current incarnation, under the leadership of Ziggy Attias. She asserted, Everything is good and their breakfasts are generous.

    I was not disappointed. At last it was a perfect day to sip a large iced tea on one of Nichols patios they have two! Arnold Palmers are also on offer, along with a full bar including 10 draft beers. I quite agreed that Nichols clam strips arent strips at all, theyre great, unctuous globs of yummy fried clam.

    The Chopped Caesar Salad is crisp with the perfect amount of dressing and moist, smoky chicken on top.

    Other Editor ordered up a Fat Boy Slim Burger Deluxe thats a Fat Boy Burger without its brioche bun, served on a bed of greens, topped with a substantial onion ring, with French fries on the side. In addition to beef, the burgers are available in turkey, veggie, salmon and crab.

    Our server Carmen suggested we try the Chicken Chimichanga Grande. This spiced chicken with rice, guacamole (fresh and CHUNKY), sour cream and salsa in a crispy tortilla was grande. It was also hotter than Im usually willing to go, but I quite liked it. Its good to stretch.

    I also ordered the Vegetarian Sandwich Brie, avocado, sprouts, tomato, pesto very flavorful, great pita. We found the Bouillabaisse brilliant, with generous amount of tender sea life in a not-too-salty broth.

    We were too stuffed to partake of the raw bar or the dessert menu!

    Fans of Attias last restaurant, Ziggys, on the turnpike in Bridgehampton will happily remember the Fat Boys and the Coconut Shrimp.

    Details, details. Thank you Nichols for setting out wide-mouthed ketchup bottles and providing heavy-duty napkins that are somewhere between a paper towel and a bib. Much appreciated.

    Attias take has been to offer an improved and

    expanded menu, including a full dinner selection, while making the restaurant more pubby. Look for an updated, but still nostalgic interior. Its easy to see why their daily Happy Hour is a popular scene. This place screams Hamptons in the summertime. As do the 16 oz. two-for-one margaritas served all day and night, every day and night.

    The former owners of Nichols now reside in Arizona where they operate Nichols West.

    By Stacy DermontSavoring the Hamptons,

    Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Islands East End is this seasons top-selling cookbook for good reason. Its written by none other than the Queen of East End Cuisine, Silvia Lehrer. The forward by Alan Alda sums it up, In these pages, youll meet the people of this island who keep the bees, dig the clams, grow the zucchini and tend the chickens and turkeys and goats, along with gifted chefs... Its your handy and beautiful guide to bringing your meals from field to table. Lehrer is Dans PapersSimple Art of Cooking columnist. Each week she offers simply delicious recipes. This book is a compendium of recipes that use local ingredients to realize classic dishes.

    In the Small Kitchen, 100 Recipes from Our Year of Cooking in the Real World by Cara Eisenpress

    and Phoebe Lapine, with an introduction by Ina Garten, is what it promises and much more. It doesnt just demonstrate to newbie foodies how to cook in a small kitchen, it also offers detailed lists and advice on stocking your kitchen, outfitting your kitchen and how to cook with ease and flair for parties. This book is the perfect gift for young people sharing a house in the Hamptons. The recipes are great too its worth picking it up for those even if youre an old hand in your small or large kitchen. Im going to try making the Sexy-Ugly Onion Tart in my medium-size kitchen this weekend. Eisenpress and Lapine are the girl geniuses behind the popular blog www.biggirlssmallkitchen.com.

    The Go Fish Benefit Cookbook is the brainchild of artist Carol Boye. Shes put together a collection of treasured recipes donated by an eclectic mix of East Enders from locals to famous artists to celebrity chefs to save our bays by benefiting the Peconic Baykeeper and the Southampton Town Trustees Shellfish Program. Delicious fish and seafood recipes to save our delicious fish and seafood. Does it get any better than this? Yup, this handy little cookbook also features arresting East End-inspired art by a host of area artists in various media. Richard Stables Bloody Mary Oysters made with a splash of LiV Vodka look promising, as does

    April Gorniks Pasta with Artichokes and Shrimp.

    Food plus art plus environmentalism. Think global, eat local.

    Its a very busy season in these foody Hamptons I only just got around to reading the bestseller Blood, Bones & Butter, The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton. Its not a cookbook, but its a deeply moving and entertaining memoir fed by food. Anthony Bourdain called it, Simply the best

    memoir by a chef ever. Believe it. Dont wait for it to come out in paperback in two months. Get it, savor it. Its a great beach or train or bedtime read but be careful, you might not be able to put it down.

    By Robin Brennen, DVMThe East End has beautiful beaches, great

    agriculture, vibrant communities and some unwanted pests. Every summer at the Animal Hospitals at Bideawee in Westhampton, we get an abundance of questions about ticks and how to stop these pests from attaching themselves to our pets.

    Although ticks arent the most loveable creatures on the East End, they just might be the hardiest. Theyve been around a long time, about 100 million years, long before there was an East End as we know it today. It is likely that with all the ticks that have survived theyll still be living on the East End long after humans are extinct.

    Ticks are sightless arachnids. They have eight legs and are closely related to scorpions, spiders and mites. Ticks have an evolved although seemingly rudimentary system for movement. They use their claws on the end of their eight legs, sort of like tweezers, to grab onto rough surfaces like trees, grasses and your clothing. When they awaken from their hibernation, hungry and ready to eat, ticks instinctively grab hold to rough surfaces and start climbing upward against the forces of gravity until they cant go any further.

    Sitting happily on the highest point they can reach, ticks wait contentedly, sometimes controlling their hunger for two years, until the sensors in their legs detect carbon dioxide and vibrations. When their sensors go off they know its time to eat. They arent picky eaters either. These parasites feed on the blood of their host and theyll suck the blood of animals or humans with equal vigor.

    Once theyve found their meal ticket, they look for a mate. Male ticks will stay on the host for as long as possible, spending their days and nights alternately feeding and mating. Its typical that after a few romantic interludes the male tick dies. Female ticks feed, procreate, become extremely swollen, and then drop off their food source to lay their 4,000+ eggs. After laying her 4,000+ eggs and continuing the family tree, the exhausted female tick dies.

    Ticks come equipped from birth with a built-in spoon, fork and knife. The tick uses its fork and knife to dig a hole in the skin giving the tick access to the blood they need to survive. Once the tick breaks the skin it burrows into its host and inserts its spoon to feed. All the while the host isnt aware of the tick because of the ticks ability to secrete a topical anesthetic that allows the tick to do its dirty work undetected.

    Ticks can ingest 200-600 times their weight! Their outer shell expands readily to accommodate the volume. Once it starts sucking blood the tick produces saliva which helps thin out the viscosity of the blood, making the meal flow faster. This blood feeds the tick while providing fuel to the bacteria living inside the tick. The tick continues to produce

    its blood-thinning saliva; some of the bacteria migrate out of the tick and into the host. This is how disease is spread. Different ticks host different diseases. We are all familiar with Lyme disease carried by the deer tick, but the American Dog Tick can carry Ehrlichia and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Both attack the blood cells of dogs and have been reported to cause disease in humans.

    Protecting you and your dog from ticks takes diligence and insecticides! The CDC recommends avoidance (walk in the center of a trail), repellents (check with your vet to apply product safe for your animals),

    and surveillance (body and clothing checks). Showering and bathing your dog can reduce the risk of being bitten. Ticks are susceptible to desiccation and high heat, so tossing clothing in the dryer can kill any hitchhikers that havent found thier way to the flesh.

    In addition to good tick control, your veterinarian may recommend you vaccinate your dog against Lyme disease.

    The majority of Fathers Day weekend was spent at home. However, Bella took her father to the beach. She did this so that they could spend a few minutes alone, relaxing to the calm lapping of the waves, playing fetch, and reflecting upon the 10 plus years they have been together. (Note the photo of Bella and her Father.)

    Bella and I constantly talk about the Southampton Animal Shelter. It is our, please forgive me, pet project. Through the years, we have shared many moments together. These moments include: walking in Central Park, kayaking in the Bahamas, and spending endless nights listening to each other snore. Today, as we spend more time together in Southampton, we use a lot of that time thinking about our friends. We discuss all the ways in which we can motivate our old friends, or even those friends we have yet to meet, to help the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF).

    After making a Fathers Day gluten-free pesto pizza with caramelized onions, the family took a summer nap before dinner at Valerie Rooks. All of us were on the cat porch. Bella, as you know, loves a party recap. She especially loves it when it involves good news for the Shelter. Valerie hosted

    an evening for renowned wildlife artist Gustavo Novoa. This painter is not only celebrated for his wildlife paintings, he also prepared the dinner to my fantasy palate of wild mushroom ravioli with a turkey telanata starter. Delicious! If you havent seen his work, Gustavo has a show coming up in New York this autumn. Bella will keep you posted. She may even get a private studio visit so that she can share the experience with her friends, and maybe something special for the Shelter, too.

    Bella spends a good portion of her time in the kitchen staring at me, so of course she started to salivate when I told her the menu. What really got Bella excited was when I told her that Valerie was coming to Unconditional Love. I also told Bella that she is bringing a group of her friends. Valerie made sure all the guests knew about the event hosted by the Scarboroughs on July 16. She told me she could not be more excited to learn further about SASF, and how to get involved.

    The conversation moved on to everyone talking about the new Thrift Shop on Jobs Lane. Some of the people had been, others had not. Those who had

    not been were ready to come and buy gifts, or go find things they could donate. For those individuals who had been, they simply loved it, and were going to make it a weekend destination.

    As a reminder, this is Cat Adoption Month. The Shelter would love everyone to come in and meet some of the older cats. These felines need friends to give them cozy places to live. Or maybe you could raise a kitten to be your cherished companion. Bella is a huge cat fan. She gives two paws up to all who come in and say hello. Its worth a visit to change a life.

    Off to the beach! As always, many thanks to all for your unconditional love for animals, and support of the Southampton Animal Shelter. We wish everyone a Happy 4th of July! Check in next week for long weekend updates. There is a lot happening on all of our East End FORKS.

    Love, BellaPS: Bella Reminder This week Bella picks

    an assortment of jewelry. Accessories are critical. The right jewelry can make or break a look. Bella believes in originality and integrating the past and the present. Add a touch of vintage and thrift to any look, thats Shelter Chic!

    By Sharon FeiereisenAny fragrance boutique that can hold its own

    on Madison Avenue (within an arms length of the famed perfume selection at Barneys New York) clearly offers something uniquely covetable, so its amidst much anticipation that the olfactory-favorite Bond No. 9 opens its first East End boutique in Sag Harbor.

    Laurice Rahme, founder and president of Bond No. 9, is the brains behind the brand. Her background includes working with the likes of Lancme, Annick Goutal and Creed, and when she struck out on her own in 2003 she opted to name her line after her downtown flagship store. With scents that complement both men and women, Bond No. 9 quickly developed a cult following, and while Rahme founded her company as a Manhattan-centric brand with names like Park Avenue and New Haarlem, she recently set out to mark New York beaches with a scent of their own. The lineup, which already includes Hamptons and Andy Warhol Montauk, will soon include a Sag Harbor-inspired scent as well.

    For the Hamptons, I created a fragrance that would capture the real reason why so many New Yorkers head out in droves to the Hamptons every summer says Rahme, who adds that the Hamptons have an intoxicating scent of salty sea meets greenery, farmland and potato fields. Its an addictive whiff of well-being, of fresh and clean, of time out on a precious cusp of land that fronts directly onto the Atlantic. Rahme has been a fan of the area for 25 years: Bridgehampton was my favorite, but that changed eight years ago when I fell in love with the quaint, fishermans village of Sag Harbor. What I love about Sag Harbor is the amount of culture that can be found in such concentrated area the theatre, the cinema, antique shops, etc. Rahme exclaims.

    Given her affinity for the area, its little surprise that the newest Bond No. 9 perfumery, designed as a summer-white version of her New York City shops, opened in the American Hotel at 45 Main Street in

    Sag Harbor. The accompanying Sag Harbor scent has been in the works for over a year now and is expected to launch Memorial Day 2012. Asked for a sneak peek, Rahme revealed that the scent will be very different than our present Hamptons and Andy Warhol Montauk fragrances. It will have the kick that the Sag Harbor village has.

    Also in the works and set for a September launch are fragrances dedicated to the I LOVE NEW YORK campaign by Milton Glaser. With so many fragrances to choose from, making the right choice can be an arduous task for shoppers. The most important tip for fragrance testing is to put it on your skin and not a blotter, advises Rahme. Everyones body chemistry is different; fragrance will always smell different on skin than a blotter. This fragrance aficionado adds that you can smell up to eight scents if you breathe in coffee beans, and that the Bond No. 9 Sag Harbor boutique has testing sessions for people to test the entire Bond No. 9 fragrance line. Still overwhelmed? Rahme divulges that, in general, women prefer floral notes and men prefer fresh, powerful marine notes.

    Bond No. 9 Sag Harbor will be open year-round and is located in the American Hotel at 45 Main Street (631-725-7467). The perfumery stocks the brands entire collection of eaux de parfums, as well as all the auxiliaries including scented candles, soaps, body creams and body lotions.

  • Dans Papers July 1, 2011 LIFESTYLE danshamptons.com Page 170

    By Sharon FeiereisenSartorially speaking, to properly prepare for a

    day at the beach it all begins with the bag, and to that end theres no better place to start than Twenty Seven East. Named after the famed Hampton highway, the brands latest offerings include the Southampton Shopper ($680 for calfskin at www.taigan.com), and the East Hampton Town Tote ($1,795 for Nile crocodile and canvas at www.taigan.com), both of which are understated and timelessly classic in design. For a more of-the-moment choice, Proenza Schoulers summer line includes a neoprene backpack available in two colorways. Not only does the style fall in line with the scuba-inspired trend weve been seeing these past few weeks at the 2012 resort shows (think Donna Karan), but it also looks effortlessly chic with its drawstring closure, mesh

    outer pockets, and multiple interior pockets to separate wet and dry clothes ($485 at www.proenzaschouler.com).

    Once youve settled on a bag, turn to Vilebrequin for a variety of towel options ($170-$200 at Vilebrequin, 42 Jobs Lane, Southampton) and Eugenia Kim for a chic hat (at Intermix, 64 Main Street, Southampton and 87 Main Street, East Hampton). Warby Parker, a brand that follows the TOMS Shoes model and donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair sold, has an endless array of options when it comes to sunglasses and at $95, theyre nearly impossible to resist (www.warbyparker.com).

    Any shoe woes can be soothed by Stuart Weitzman. Its all about the wedge, rope sole espadrille this season and the designer offers an endless assortment (at Stuart Weitzman, 53 The Circle, East Hampton). If flats are more your style, the it flip flop of the season comes courtesy of Missoni. The brand has teamed up with Havaianas for a limited edition collection that includes two womens and one unisex flip flop style ($60-$70 at www.havaianas.com).

    A celebrity favorite (think Cameron Diaz, Kelly Osborne, and Marisa Miller), L*Space has a variety

    of one-piece and two-piece swimwear options (at www.singer22.com), all of which layer beautifully with a tunic or caftan from Calypso St. Barth (see www.calypsostbarth.com for a list of their Hampton boutiques). If, however, you need a little confidence boost before slipping into a bikini, dont forget to pack Rodials Skinny Beach SPF 15 ($64 at www.rodial.co.uk). The multi-duty cream firms, lifts, tones, and hydrates and can further be combined with the Organic Pharmacys Cellular Protection Sun Cream SPF 30 ($59.95 at www.theorganicpharmacy.com) to protect skin from premature aging and sun

    damage.Round out your bag by tossing in a bottle of

    Visines new Summer Spectrum Relief to relieve summertime eye irritation and redness ($3.99 at local drugstores), Jurliques Chamomile Soothing Mist to keep skin cooled ($31 at www.jurlique.com), Philip Kingsley Swimcap to protect hair from discoloration and damage caused by the sun, chlorine, salt, water, and wind ($35 at www.philipkingsley.com), and, of course, some sweet treats from Dylans Candy Bar (at 52 Main Street, East Hampton).

    By Sharon FeiereisenRemember back in the day when all anyone

    thought about when shopping for sunscreen was the SPF number on the bottle? Today, were bombarded with so much information and even more options that a person could break out in hives from the sheer stress of sorting through it all. Even more alarming is that despite increased awareness the number of melanoma cases has been rising. According to the American Cancer Society there were about 68,000 new cases of melanoma last year in the United States, up from 48,000 cases in 2000. Former Chair of the Institute for Melanoma and Skin Cancer Research Dr. Robert Friedman says the key to being properly shielded is to look for products that provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

    SPF, in fact, refers only to protection from UVB rays (i.e. the ones that cause skin to burn). An SPF of 30 protects against approximately 97% of the suns UVB rays; an SPF of 50 protects against 98% of them, so in most circumstances, an SPF of 30 is quite adequate, as long as its put on correctly and re-applied, notes Dr. Friedman. A few sunscreen labels, like StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF 30/PA+++, also specify a PA ranking, which refers to the amount of protection the sunscreen offers from UVA rays (i.e. the ones that cause long-term skin damage like wrinkles). PA rankings are listed as PA+, PA++ or PA+++, with the more plus symbols offering more protection.

    Among the best new sun-protecting products on the market is MDSolarSciences SPF 40 Mineral Screen Lotion. Great for the body, it was developed

    by Dr. Friedman and is non-greasy, sinks into skin almost immediately, and lacks that chalkiness often associated with sunscreen. According to Dr. Friedman, whether you opt for a spray, a lotion, a gel, or a stick theres no difference in terms of efficacy, so go with what youre most likely to reapply every two hours.

    UVA rays can pass through clothes, so invest in a few pieces of lightweight clothing specifically made with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF). Mott 50 has some particularly chic options including a line of Hamptons-ready tunics, each of which boasts UPF 50, meaning only one fiftieth of the suns UVA rays can pass through it (as opposed to a regular tee which has a UPF of 5).

    Get the kids on board by lathering them in Sunbow. Designed with children in mind, each of the lotions and sprays in the new sunscreen range goes on in color (either yellow with SpongeBob packaging or pink for Dora the Explorer), without staining clothes.

    Its also important to remember not to forget to

    protect lips, hands and ears as theyre common ar
