“Lehrer (Cooking at Cooktique) provides a great variety of recipes for year-round pleasure, e.g., Fettuccine with Wild Mushrooms, Wheat Berry Salad with Sugar Snap Peas and Cherry Tomatoes, and East End Clam Pie. Beautiful photographs illustrate why the Hamptons are a favorite vacation spot. Resources for artisans, farms, restaurants, and vineyards are listed. In a foreword, Alan Alda offers more than praise for this cookbook in an ode to the Hamptons and the people who live and cook there.”

“’Savoring the Hamptons,’ Silvia Lehrer’s beautiful, comprehensive cookbook featuring everything utterly delicious about the North and South Forks of Long Island, is a book that needed to be written…gorgeous photographs…Regions like Tuscany, Napa Valley, and the South of France have long inspired cookbooks celebrating everything these places have to offer. The North and South Forks have now gotten the book and the recognition they deserve….This is the cookbook for those who revere and respect Long Island’s East End. It is the book to send to friends and family far away, with the inscription ‘This is where we live, and this is why we live here.’”

“The art of preparing food that touches something in you when you eat is something Silvia Lehrer has spent a lifetime learning. And her ability to teach others how to accomplish that same bit of magic has been a gift to the rest of us.”
