The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook Booksignings at Sag Harbor East End Masters of Health & Wellness & Slow Foods East End, 7/27, 7/28

Homegrown food and cooking -- and health and wellness -- go together like dear friends who warmly embrace after a long time apart. 
Or to use a food analogy: they are meant for each other like a martini, a twist of lemon and local oysters -- and a sweet, satisfied smile. 

So no wonder I’m tickled pink to be a presenter for my book, The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook at the 3rd annual East End Masters of Health and Wellness Preventative Health and Sustainable Technology Expo, July 27th and 28th in Sag Harbor.

The locally-owned holistic health consulting firm, Turtle Shell Health, will help host the trifecta of the weekend’s food events there: the Farmer’s Market, the Slow Food East End Food Riot VIP Cocktail and Dinner fundraising event.

Also key to the success of the weekend events is the landscape design firm, Dodds and Eder, who showcase the work of a number of the East End community’s best nonprofits and businesses.

Turtle Shell Health launched in 2007 from the combined efforts of health mentor Ana Nieto and web guru Ivo Tomasini: two Sag Harborites who are known locally for their management of the Sag Harbor Farmers Market.
Through Turtle Shell Health, information about holistic health and East End health organizations are available to the entire community.

Turtle Shell produces two annual events-- in the twin foodie high points in the greater New York Metro area -- Manhattan and on the East End -- to advance their goal of making health information more accessible.

In Sag Harbor, July 27th and 28th the best of local businesses focused on health and homegrown food at this year’s Masters Expo include Fighting Chance, GMO Free NY, the East End Farmers Market Association, Clean Apothicaire, Holly Durning Acupuncture, Edible East End and The Sag Harbor Express, Naturopathica, SHIMA (Sag Harbor Integrative Medical Associates), the East Hampton YMCA, The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook, Peter Garnham horticulturist, and many more.

Slow Food East End will co-host The Food Riot VIP Dinner Event, July 27.
The cocktail and dinner will benefit Slow Food East End, featuring keynote speaker, Jeffrey M. Smith, and live music.
The event is reserved for VIP ticket holders and is dedicated to bringing awareness to the local grassroots food movements and sustainable agriculture systems that are changing how people eat.

As the Health & Wellness team writes: “From personal experience, which includes several fabulous Slow Food dinners at Ted Conklin’s The American Hotel, a featured restaurant and chef and grower in my Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook, “I can guarantee that any Slow Food East End event will treat you well. After all, the organization is aimed at advocating for the efforts of chefs and food growers on the East End over fast-food companies. Fabulous food is very convincing.”  

I Couldn’t agree more.

The American Hotel in Sag Harbor is a classic.  I felt like Eloise staying there.  It was home away from home. Great Martinis and Oysters!

Co-Host Dodds and Eder is also featured prominently, in that their Sag Harbor storefront will once again be the venue of the Masters Expo.

According to the landscape design firm, “The staff at Dodds & Eder designs and maintains unique landscapes and interiors to meet the exacting needs and desires of their clients.”

Masters of Health and Wellness events feature, alongside the exhibitors, the opportunity to talk to professionals in the fields of food and health. Panel discussions will run both days of the event, twice a day, and include such well-known and well-regarded wellness professionals such as culinary nutritionist Stefanie Sacks and raw-foods proponent Debra Secunda.

Dodds & Eder of Sag Harbor, site of the Masters Expo, is located at 11 Bridge Street, Sag Harbor.

So be sure to enjoy Sang Lee Farms' Monday Pizza Night, 6:30 to 9:00pm.
