WOR News Talk Radio Interview with Joan Hamburg
If you squint a lot, you can nearly make out my name in the window!
I was thrilled to be able to share the good food news of The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook on the popular, WOR News Talk Radio 710 show with The Joan Hamburg Show, radio personality and foodie enthusiast. And a media inspiration....
Joan was very generous and keenly interested, especially about the fact that the Homegrown Cookbook not only featured her favorite food haunts, such as Nick & Toni’s and Almond, but ALL of Long Island’s noteworthy locavore chefs and their growers.
Long Island is a cornucopia of artisanal food artisans – growing, making, fishing, and breeding the freshest, tastiest, healthiest homegrown ingredients. And the Homegrown Cookbook is an homage to the land and waters of this very special terroir.
Or as Long Island Newsday referred to it, “A love letter to Long Island.”

The show asked me to provide a recipe to post on the radio show’s web site.
One recipe??! I sent five. Too hard to choose just one. Ha.
Natalie, Joan’s top-flight producer made sure that two made it to the website.
You can see for yourself:
From the Homegrown Cookbook, here is Chef Joe, Nick & Toni’s East Hampton restaurant, recipe for Peconic Bay Scallops
From Chef Matt Connors, The Lake House in Bayport, here is the recipe for Cherry Tomato Gazpacho
