Tonight we’re having a few neighbors over for a casual cocktail party in the garden. We just thought it would be nice for everyone to saunter over after work and enjoy some rosé. But, as with every party I host (large or small), the ideas percolate as the event gets nearer and I find myself tweaking, adding and subtracting until the first guest arrives! A little exhausting and nerve wracking, but that’s just the way I do it. I basically can’t help myself.
So, as I tried to figure out substantial appetizers to serve with all those drinks, I started thinking about what’s in season. That led to farm stands and that led to fresh corn, peaches and lobster. And, that reminded me of my favorite farm stand in East Hampton…Round Swamp.
It is a must stop when you are in the Hamptons and in addition to their farm stand in East Hampton, they added a little market in Bridgehampton, located right behind Bobby Van’s.
