Imagine having a table big enough to seat the entire family - all three generations! This family had such a great time at our Graybarn Cottage that they shared this photo with us. The Mill House Team prepared them an amazing dinner with Choice Cut Filets grilled on the BBQ by J. Stuart's Seafood Market supplied Lobster Dinners, Fresh Corn and local Red Potatoes. There were fresh Asparagus from Balsam Farm - grilled with just a little olive oil, salt & pepper. Desert was pie ala mode - Cherry Pie from Blue Duck Bakery and Apple Pie from Montauk Bake Shoppe topped off with Vanilla Ice Cream from Joe & Liza's in Sag Harbor. Just like home!!!
We all need water.
Water to drink, bath, and wash with, but I need different water.
Water to swim in, dive under, ride on, fish in, surf on, and kayak in.I do not always have the time to pack all of my gear for water sports so I have Weekend Warrior Tours set up my kayaking and Stand Up paddle boarding. They also make it very easy for me to invite friends and family from out of town. I love the feeling when you pull up to the launch site and all of the yaks are ready to go. Maybe I like the idea we can leave right away, maybe because I see the packed lunches and coolers, or maybe its because I know I do not have to clean up or pack when we get back…
Bay Street Theater had an amazing comedy series this summer. A few big names, topping the list of comedians that my husband had to see were Ralphie May and Jim Breuer. We missed Ralphie but we were able to get a babysitter for the Jim Breuer show. Jim kept us in stiches the entire night. The theater is so small and intimate that the nose bleed section is only 100 feet from the stage. The only bad seats in the theater are the ones where you walk by Jim Breuer like a cowboy and he can’t resist but to add you into his act.
Cuddy was on the menu as a new restaurant in Sag Harbor that we had to try.
It is in located in the space next to Sen. It is a Bar & Grill Gastro pub; we had mussels and Quail for appetizers. The Tilefish was fresh from Montauk and it was cooked just perfect with golden beets and a sauce of creamed deviled eggs. J had The Cuddy Burger, house ground beef, and house cured bacon and a fried egg to finish it off. The burger just melted in your mouth. An amazing date night in Sag Harbor the goes to prove that even with last minute notice there's always something to do on the east end..

We just released our new Summer Menu at the Mill House and that means it's time to research the Autumn~Winter edition. My usual method, take several dozen cook books, scatter them about our dining room table. For the next few weeks I will read, take paperless notes & pictures with Evernote. I am now able to digitally search the contents of my cook book library, 1,000 books some 40 years old, with Eat Your Books! My iPad heats up as I scan the websites of Saveur Edible Epicurious Food & Wine then I look at my RSS feeds from Eater Thrillist Food Arts Zagats & Katie all neatly tucked into Feedly! I always find a few new cookbooks whether online at Jessica's Biscuit or Kitchen Arts & Letters, then on to the village bookstores Book Hampton Harpers Books & Glenn Horowitz Bookseller!
So print still matters, more important than ever,
look at what Kaitlyn Goalen has to say at Eatocracy maybe buy something real cool the Short Stacked Editions! Then look at how publishing is changing from Seth Godin at his newest venture The Domino Project! I Vividly remember working at the NYC Library looking through microfiche back in the 80's!
So the art of gathering food & beverage intelligence has never been better. A virtual carousel of old and new, print, local, digital & hybrid. All indispensable media dramatically creating a new metric. Stunning paper, wonderful book stores, online availability of everything and the wizard of technology! Maybe I will write that cookbook…
