Ricky Lauren The Hamptons Food, Family and History ..by Ricky Lauren.
‘So, okay, we may not all have houses in the Hamptons and we may not all be married to a famous-beyond-famous designer. But that doesn’t mean we can’t at least dine like Mrs. Ralph Lauren does. The ever-gorgeous Ricky Lauren just published The Hamptons: Food, Family, And History, and in it, she divulges some of her so-good family recipes.’ says refinery29.com
“This book became an album that chronicles our personal history there,” says Ricky Lauren. “For my children, it has become a resource to tap into for their own memories of food, love and laughter that we share as a family. ‘The Hamptons’ is about taking advantage of the natural setting. Keep things simple, entertain outdoors, seek out fresh produce in farm markets if you can,” she says. “Enjoy the unique natural beauty and bounty with friends and family wherever you live.”
Much of Lauren’s cooking - she has been collecting recipes since she was a newlywed - call for local seasonal ingredients.”Tried-and-true” favorites include the Sunshine Salad with mango dressing - crafted by a young Dylan for a family lunch - Ricky’s challah French toast, and Ralph’s favorite dessert, Nana’s rum-laced brownies.’ what a life!
