A Delicious Day in the Hamptons: Topping Rose House & Eleven Madison Park’s Summer House Pop-Up

August 19, 2017

After a late night at the James Beard Foundation’s dreamy “Chefs & Champagne” event (I just can’t resist a dance floor and 80’s music!) we slept pretty late the next morning. As the Champagne-induced haze lifted, we decided on a deliciously relaxing day wandering the Hamptons. There are definitely worse places to wander, that’s for sure! We set out into the blissfully sunny Summer day (with zero humidity, Z E R O) and, after a pit stop at the Southampton Starbucks, we made our way to Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton for an afternoon cocktail (nothing like a little hair of the dog, my friends!). Built in the 1840s, the Topping Rose House was extensively renovated in 2011 and is...

Postcards from La Pitchoune: Day 4 & THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

August 10, 2017

Well, it’s official! The dates are set, the details are finalized and I couldn’t be more excited because today I get to share my big announcement with you! You know, the one I’ve been hinting at for the past month or so since we returned from our cooking class at La Pitchoune, Julia Child’s former Summer home in Provence?

“Weekly Wine Picks” Episode #5: California Gems!

August 06, 2017

On this week’s episode of “Weekly Wine Picks” (my new Facebook LIVE show) I featured some very special wines I discovered on a recent trip to California, aka “California Gems.”  While a little off the beaten path (ok, and a tad pricey), these are special wines from some very well-known and respected winemakers who take a “hands-off” approach to winemaking while placing immeasurable value on “terroir.” The four wines featured include: Failla Chardonnay Chuy Vineyard, Sonoma Valley, California, 2014 ($60) Matthiasson Vineyards Ribolla Gialla, Napa Valley, California, 2013 ($45) Round Pond Estate Rosato di Nebbiolo, Rutherford, California, 2016 ($32) Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley, California, 2013 ($80) To view the “California Gems” episode and join in the...
