Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sure to be the go-to gift of the season. No doubt it will appear beneath Christmas trees and Chanukah bushes across the Island." Dan's Hamptons
 

"...there's many a fascinating story told in this book and I suggest that you go right ahead and buy a copy for every foodie on your gift list. Locals will love it. As will native Long Islanders who now live "away." People who sometimes visit our shores will also "eat it up."
 
I really enjoyed reading about many of the chefs' backgrounds. I love their food and now I better know where it comes from."

"The Hamptons and Long Island Homegrown Cookbook" by Leeann Lavin has some mouth-watering recipes from Long Island that can be enjoyed in South Florida." - Jewish Journal (Florida)



“But there’s many a fascinating story told in this book and I suggest that you go right ahead and buy a copy for every foodie on your gift list. Locals will love it. As will native Long Islanders who now live “away.” People who sometimes visit our shores will also “eat it up.”” - Dan’s Hamptons

“Long Island and Hamptons residents can emulate their favorite restaurant chefs in their own kitchens through these

recipes, while others can get a taste of the region’s culinary palette.” - MomsCentral.com

From the Inside Flap

Local. Seasonal. Sustainable. Farm fresh.
 
Restaurants all over Long Island try to boast at least one of these adjectives, but to the farmers and chefs profiled here, these are more than just buzzwords. They are a way of life. These farmers rise before the roosters to bring fresh produce, meats, and cheeses to area farmers’ markets. These chefs kick off the day with an early trip to the market and wrap it up in the wee hours of the night after feeding hundreds of appreciative diners.
 
In The Hamptons and Long Island Homegrown Cookbook, you’ll find the stories behind some of Long Island’s most buzz-worthy chefs, including Guy Reuge of Mirabelle Restaurant, Matt Connors of the Lake House, Tom Schaudel of CoolFish Grille & Wine Bar, Jason Weiner of Almond, and Claudia Fleming and Gerry Hayden of North Fork Table & Inn. The chefs featured here work with area farmers to bring the freshest locally grown, sustainable foods to their menus. With more than 75 outstanding recipes from these dedicated chefs and farmers, we hope you’ll enjoy bringing a little homegrown food into your own kitchen.

This is a gorgeous book, wonderfully written. Leeann Lavin writes in a lovely voice. You can tell she loves getting to know the chefs and the farmers she profiles. Her love comes through in her words and I fell in love with the chefs and farmers too. I wanted to know their stories. and I wanted to make their recipes. The recipes are easy to follow, clearly written and the food is delicious ! Buy this book !

Format: Hardcover
I am a kitchen-centric interior designer who truly believes the kitchen is the most important room in the home. The kitchen is where we share our intimate stories while creating comfort foods for family and friends. I also believe that this is the most important cookbook in my kitchen and have given 26 of them out to kitchen design clients to enhance their experience in their new kitchens. The movement to slow food is a great one and it is embodied here with garden inspiration to creating a superb tasting local menu. Cooking from the recipes is great fun and my results have been fabulous. Clients have reported many culinary successes as well. Even if you are not inclined to turn on the oven, eating at the featured restaurants is a great way to travel through Long Island. But for me, the most important take way from this great book is the inspiration to go to the family farms and local markets cropping up and eat more local, fresh food. In addition to the recipes, Leeann has written loving tales of gardens, and of the chefs creating seasonal menus that truly showcase the Long Island seasonal produce. I highly recommend this book and will continue to gift it to all my foodie clients.

This is not your traditional cookbook. While the book contains recipes it also tells the stories behind the recipes with profiles of the chefs, farmers, and gardeners who create the ingredients for the recipes and have a passion for local food. I decided to make the ratatouille because, well, I never made ratatouille before and because it is just so fun to say - ratatouille, ratatouille, ratatouille. I served it at a party this summer and it was a hit! Looking forward to trying another recipe.

the least desirable and/or simple recipe from all the restaurants in the book- shame because some of the restaurants are excellent and perhaps could have shared something special
