One summer weekend, we were invited out to Southampton by some dear friends, who just happen to be way fancy...they rented a small house for the season and by "small", I mean small for them which is six bedrooms (Universe, if you are listening- I would be happy with a one or two bedroom bungalow by the beach)...anyway, we were looking forward to a fab few days!
It happened to be the hottest weekend ever in NYC & we were just happy to be out of the concrete jungle and in the lushness of the Hamptons. The icing on the cake? Quality time with our friends and well, them having a personal chef definitely did not suck. Chef never cooked vegan before, but she's a pro & as she put it- cooking vegan was no problem!
Here's a quick show & tell:
Friday night dinner:
a most delectable watermelon avocado salad and yes, it was delectable, delicious, delicate & perfect...
My entree was curried tofu- was super tasty- everyone else had fish in curry & Chef apologized for my dish not looking as pretty...um, no complaints here!
Poached pears for dessert- sans honey mascarpone topping for me...
Note to Universe: I would also like a nice Viking outdoor grill at my beach bungalow- thanks!
The roasted artichokes were divine.
We were in a lovely octagonish bedroom:
Organic Avenue - hurray!
Table dressed for a Sunday get-together:
It was quite cinematic...just a lone spot along the road with helicopter waiting. As cool as the whole production was, I was simply unimpressed because I was just plain scared!
