There is perhaps nothing more tender and delicate than a zucchini. Except, perhaps, when the zucchini in question is a late season, enormous, oblong monster akin to something out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Anyone who’s ever grown zucchini knows that there comes a point, if your crop is successful, when you turn your head for a second and look back to find one of these mammoths pulling on the vine, half-hidden (creepily) between gigantic green leaves.
We at Edible East End, would love to thank everyone who came to our annual Food Truck Derby last Friday. There were sliders, pizza from a wood fired oven, delicious ice cream, crepes, grilled cheese and wine and beer and iced tea and so much more. We hope to see you next year and that the weather will be as fantastic as it was this year.
This is our fourth food truck derby coming up on August 8. Remember the first one when it thunder stormed all day, and then…
Thanks Paula Rosenthal of Just a Bite Desserts!
The 10th annual Great Chefs Dinner is just around the corner and tickets are still available. The list of celebrity chefs who have signed on to cook for the cause, which will raise money for the culinary and garden program as well as scholarships for students at Jeff’s Kitchen at the Hayground School, is nothing short of stellar.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the first Great Chefs Dinner, a fund-raiser for Jeff’s Kitchen at Hayground School in Bridgehampton.
Hayground School in Bridgehampton is realizing a dream that has quietly landed it on the cutting edge of school lunches nationally. The dream involves tempting young children to respect and crave healthy food in a culture awash in processed fare and restoring the prime socializing cement of a shared table.
Save the date, August 3, for the Great Chefs Dinner, a fundraiser for student-collaborative kitchen and garden at Hayground School. Learn more about it with this interview with Toni Ross of Nick & Toni’s and one of the school’s founders.
From school gardens to snails, and from screw caps to stouts, a passion for food and drink is what unites this community.
Nearly 25 schools and learning centers on the East End have sprouted gardens, from small patches to spacious greenhouses and internships.
The cocktail portion never fails to impress with cooks outdoing cooks as they sling clams, corn, duck, tomatoes and other timely harvest. Since this is a family affair, among those cooking will be current Hayground parents Chef Jason Weiner of Almond restaurants and L&W Oyster Co, and Christian Mir of the Stone Creek Inn.
Grab your ticket now for the Great Chefs Dinner to benefit the Hayground School’s cutting-edge cooking curriculum. It’s shaping up to be one of the tastiest events of the summer, and Edible will be there.
