The News From Oregon Road; Updates from Shinn Estate Vineyard

Each week, David Page of Shinn Estate Vineyard sends out a newsletter updating subscribers on the latest news and the state of the vineyard. And that’s what I like about this newsletter. It keeps me updated on the growing season and on the latest methods Barbara is using in the vineyard, which she farms sustainably as a member of Long Island Sustainable Wine Growing.

Wild Raspberry Season Is Here!

The raspberries are nearly two weeks late this year. I suppose it’s not surprising, considering the long, cold spring we had on the East End, but the lateness has thrown off my summer culinary schedule.

Meet Paul Greenberg, Author of American Catch, in Sag Harbor on July 25

Paul Greenberg has been a good friend to Edible for a while. He has written for us about mackerel and snappers, has provided many a quote when we write about the state of the fisheries and it turns out is good friends with someone I went to college with and his wife. Like they go to Nantucket together every summer. Small world.

Grilled Pizza: Thinking Outside the Bun

Imagine a Neapolitan thin crust style pizza that is perfectly soft and crisp, lightly charred, with a nice smoky flavor that cooks in a flash right on your grill.

    Shinnecock Bay Restoration Project Is Tagging Fluke; If You Catch One Please Throw It Back

    Comment | By

    We have recently begun a tagging study of fluke in the bay. We are using acoustic tags and receivers to study the movement of summer flounder, or fluke. If you happen to catch a tagged fish, please consider releasing it so that we can continue to collect important data. Attached is a flyer outlining what the tags look like, and a number you can call if you encounter a tagged fish.

    Where We’re Eating: July 23, 2014

    Comment | By

    It’s certainly feeling like midsummer these days—a little sticky, a little muggy, a little slower and, some nights, too hot to cook. When that’s the eminent feeling (similar, we think, to the feeling that okays Birkenstocks as evening-wear in the summer), Edible’s editors like to leave the cooking to someone else. Here’s where we’re eating right now.
