The holiday season is upon us in East Hampton. The shops are bustling and the town is glowing with beautiful Christmas lights. What says holidays more then spending time with great food and time with family and friends? For some people the task of creating meals, goodies and delectable treats is a daunting task. Loaves and Fishes Cookshop in Bridgehampton offers demonstrations and classes every Saturday to help people find their inspiration. For me, its second nature and each year I attempt to outdo the year before – one day this will probably catch up to me, but for now I’ll just keep going…..
Last week was the truffles and chocolates, this week I decided to spread the joy of the holiday season and volunteer at the senior center to assist them with their holiday meal. One of the directors had recently come back from a cruise and wanted to share the festivities with the seniors by doing a Baked Alaska parade. So I offered my assistance to the senior kitchen with meringue portion of the Baked Alaskas because who doesn’t like to play with a huge torch! Baked Alaska is actually not as difficult as it looks, a recipe can be found here for you to try in your own kitchen. The seniors absolutely loved the show!!
Next week we ring in the New Year here in East Hampton, we shall see what the events of the week shall bring…with events at Wolffer Estate Winery, Stephen Talkhouse and a variety of private parties in town, we will sure to have some exciting happenings….
