I wrote an essay on my new life “Under the North Fork Sun” that’s just been published in the latest issue of Edible East End. EEE is one of several “Edible” publications managed by the estimable Brian Halweil and his team; it’s a beautiful magazine with some truly terrific photography. My piece, complete with a photo by the talented Randee Dadonna is found on page 59 or click on the cover and go to “current issue” and you’ll find the piece under “transplants.” One of my friends, after reading it, said “It sounds like the Eat/Pray/Love of Long Island” while another declared it was rather “Pollyanish” adding, a bit waspishly I thought, “It sounds like you love everything.” (And yes, he happens to be a professional critic.) And yet … when I stopped by the Village Cheese Shop in Mattituck a few days ago (it’s one of the places I mentioned in my piece) to buy some cheese for a friend, Rosemary the owner was there. “Are you my cheese girl?” she asked and came around the counter to give me a hug. There’s something to be said for a Pollyanaish view of the world- particularly when it’s accompanied by a hunk of good Parmesan.
