Outstanding in the Field/Amagansett Weekend
What an awesome weekend in every way. The weather was beautiful. The company great. The food was outstanding.
Here is a little info on the farm: EECO Farm is a non-profit enterprise that cares for 42 acres of East Hampton land. In turn, EECO Farm leases gardens and parcels to individuals, families, and commercial farmers who agree to use organic methods of growing. Of the 120 gardeners who tend 20′ x 20′ gardens, skills range from the novice to the very experienced. They support each other and learn from their neighbors, as well as the master gardeners on site. EECO Farm provides water, compost, and advice, along with regular seminars and workshops on relevant subjects. The mission of the East End Organic Farm is to enrich the earth and demonstrate the benefits and practicality of organic growing. Last year EECO farmers donated over 15 tons of produce to local food pantries.
This is Jim (founder of OSF) and Leah (pretty much the COO)
Peter Garnham was our farm tour guide.
This is rosemary that has been watered ONCE all year.
Here is the menu.
This was everyone’s favorite dish – steamed littleneck clams with corn, kale, smoked tomatoes, rouille and garlic bread.
This was everyone’s second favorite dish – apple bread pudding with whipped creme fresh, carmel and sea salt – tasted like apple french toast.
That’s Anna beind me – she’s from TX and has been working for OSF this summer – she was assigned to our crazy table.
The gentleman on the chair is the chef, Jason Weiner of Almond.
Such a great night.
Below are a few more pictures from our weekend. This is Ditch Plains (a famous surf spot in Montauk)
Dan and Jeannine brought their last bottle of wine from our trip to Tuscany so we could drink it on the beach while watching the sunset (and while eating these).
Awesome breakfast burritos.
Lobster roll – YUM!
The boys had a ton of fun in the pool. 🙂
