On Saturday, July 13, the third annual Dan’s Taste of Two Forks was hot! It is the largest food soirée in the Hamptons that attracted foodies near and far to taste and sip the bounty of the North and South forks of Long Island, known as the East End. For those not familiar with the East End, the forks extend into the Atlantic Ocean like a two-tined fork. Farms, fishers, artisanal food purveyors and winemakers share the riches of this region’s land, sea and vines.
This sold out event was held under a tent at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton, on one of the most hot and humid evenings of the year; I should have brought my Wüsthofs, as I could have cut the air it was so thick. An amalgamation of 36 restaurants, eight specialty food purveyors and 17 vintners served and poured while we mingled and munched. And to add a little more sparkle to your sparkling wine, the event was hosted by Bobby Flay and the emcee was Alex Guarnashelli, an Iron Chef star-studded moment.
If you missed Dan’s Taste of Two Forks and want to experience and taste your way through the North and South forks, you can attend Harvest East End. This event celebrates the wine-and-food bounty of Long Island Wine Country and will surely satiate the appetite and thirst of food enthusiasts. The celebration will be on Saturday, August 24 at McCall Vineyard & Ranch on the North Fork in Cutchogue, NY.
