A Lovely Lamb
Elaia Estiatorio has a collaboration with Jodi Moreno to offer a special lamb fricassee and tzatziki potato salad entree through Tuesday.
A childhood favorite of the restaurant's co-owner Sofia Crokos, the two partnered on the recipe, adding personal tweaks to the traditional dish. The restaurant notes that the lamb stew is prepared to be healthy and gluten free. It features an avgolemono sauce and kale. The side dish has baby potatoes with fresh herbs and kalamata olives along with the tzatziki sauce.
Just in Time
For Hanukkah, which begins Monday, the LTV (and SunTV in Southampton Town) series "Two Jews Making Food," produced and hosted by Rebecca Edana and Amy Kirwin, will feature latkes through Dec. 4. Although each episode features a food item associated with Jewish culture, half or more of the fun is watching the two mixing it up while they're in the kitchen.
"I Love You a Latke" will be followed by "Kugelicious" from Dec. 7 to Dec. 18, "Ode to Nigella" from Dec. 21 to Jan. 1, and "Let's Get Blintzed" from Jan. 4 to Jan. 15. In addition to scheduled airings, the episodes can be streamed through LTV's YouTube channel.
On the Other Fork
Fall-inspired cocktails might be just the thing to cap off a late autumn drive on the North Fork. The North Fork Table and Inn is offering a few on its bar menu and some recipes for inspiration at home.
The French Apple 75, its take on the classic French 75, is composed of an ounce of Le Verger (a French liqueur derived from apple juice, peaches, cherries, and cinnamon), a half ounce of ginger tea, three quarters of an ounce of lemon, and topped with prosecco in a coupe glass. The garnish is a dried apple with or without a flower. Also on the menu is an autumn sour and a stone fruit old fashioned.
For now and the winter months ahead, the restaurant will have an outdoor Smores + Port option on Sunday evenings on its west patio. At a mini bonfire for two, guests can roast their own marshmallows to place on homemade graham crackers with spicy Aleppo-chocolate bark. A selection of port or Valrhona hot chocolate adds an extra layer of warmth. The $55 special is not available for children.
Monday's speakers at Manna at Lobster Inn in Southampton are Aram Terchun and Laura Fabrizio of the Moriches Bay Project. They will discuss the mission and accomplishments of the project. The talk will be followed by a dinner featuring a custom menu designed by Chef Tom Bogia. Tickets to this evening are $100 per person with the proceeds benefiting the project and the Manna Ocean Foundation, both nonprofit organizations.
