The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook arrives at retail bookstores!

The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook hits  retail bookstores 

Today was pretty much the first day my book, The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook premiered at retail bookstores.

It was a perfect morning for a foodie: the morning spent gathering spring recipe ingredients for my husband’s birthday dinner. 
It was a sunny spring day with lots of exuberance and excitement at my local greenmarket, Union Square.
Mint, green garlic, upstate pork… salad greens, cherries, raspberries, and later, a premier visit to the Grand Opening of Agata & Valentina fine food market for cheese, salumi and homemade chocolate gelato.  

Green Garlic at Bohditree 

You have to love Zoe's Greenmarket art!  Here she is creating the other side of sandwich board. She said it will be the rapper response to this side!

The key ingredient for Melissa Clark's New York Times weekly recipe, featured on Wednesdays.  The farmer get a free pass for noting it is a Tuesday NY Times post!
Then, a discovery visit to the Barnes & Noble bookstore on Union Square to see the book on retail bookshelves. 
It was a heart-stopping, misty-eyed moment to see the book there.

There, amidst the cooking greats, and right above chef Ferran Adria, was my pride and joy.

What a dream come true…

I am thrilled to be able to say you can order The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook via Amazon, B&N or me J
