Summer season of cooking in the Hamptons: foodTalk

foodTalk

Two weeks ago I had the great good fortune to shoot some television with my friends Steve Haweeli, from Wordhampton PR, and Chef Michael Rozzi from the 1770 House in East Hampton, NY. I’ve known both of these guys for over 20 years and they’re both NY Yankees fans. As a Chicago Cubs fan, this was a good year for all of us to catch up. Steve currently hosts a show called “foodTalk” on LTV in East Hampton and this is where we shot the show.

Most of our conversation focused on cooking and farming on the east end of Long Island. It is one of the few places in the United States where farming, fishing, winemaking, and more, happens in one place. There are also a lot of food entrepreneurs, coffee roasters, makers of spirits, and textiles in the area. It’s a great place to cook because of these close relationships. 

We also covered olive oil, gardening, golf, eggs, ramen, and life in general on the east end. It is a fun 27 or so minutes that goes by in a flash, with no edits just to keep it edgy.

Here is a link to the video of the discussion. Check it out and feel free to share it all over the place.

  1. Hi. Can you tell me your prices for 12 people for your personal chef services. In cutchogue NY. Thanks

    1. Hi. I charge $125 per person plus the cost of food. I supply receipts to verify the food cost. In my experience you can plan on $50-65 per person for food, so total cost is usually $175-190 per person. High ticket items like Wagyu beef, foie gras, truffles, and fish from Japan will push that amount higher. Tasting menus do that as well. Thank you for your interest and let me know if I can answer any other questions. Kevin
