The boutique hotel experts, bon vivants and certified style seekers at Mr & Mrs Smith know their way around a menu. Here’s their insider guide to eating your way around the Hamptons…

One for the epicures…

In gastro circles, Scandinavian cuisine is, quite simply, where it’s at right now. But if you don’t fancy the schlep to Noma in Copenhagen to dine on musk ox and seawater, stay closer to home and sample the fare served at the Living Room. Like the hotel it sits in — the delightfully offbeat 19-room design den C/O the Maidstone — the restaurant is a Scandi-American blend pulled off with panache. Chef

James Carpenter is a devotee of local, seasonal slow food — look out for his signature dish of tarte flambé with house-cured Norwegian smoked salmon, crème fraiche, and capers. The charcuterie plate, which pairs Iowan ham and duck salami from the Hudson Valley with Sweden’s piquant Praest Ost cheese, is another highlight. Sweet tooth? Look no further than pastry chef Laura Donnelly's ricotta and pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust. Oh, and if you’ve a canine in tow, they get a special doggy-tailored menu to pick from too.

Where else?
Be sure to book a table at Nick & Toni’s on North Main Street. Sunny all-white dining rooms, folk art on the walls and a Tuscan menu dripping olive oil and authenticity make this the restaurant of choice for A-listers holidaying in the Hamptons. Don’t miss whole striped sea bass baked in the wood-fired oven,

and follow it with the recklessly indulgent polenta pound cake with thick cannoli cream. To up the romance, dine by candlelight on elegantly prepared all-American cuisine including roast Iowa pork and pan-fried scallops at the nearby 1770 House. On winter evenings, hole up in the 1770’s Tavern bar, a historic speakeasy with low lighting, exposed brickwork, and a wicked way with meatloaf.

Care for a coffee?
For the best brew in town, as well as homemade granola and peach muffins, there are lots of options. Our favorite, the Golden Pear Café on Newton Lane, is a must-try and a mini Hamptons dynasty of its own. You’ll find delicate pastries, robust coffee, and some of the best chili north of NYC.

Rockin' Rice Pudding

There are certain foods that bore me and I'm not afraid to say that out loud.

But then again, these 'boring' foods are usually the most commonly used ones. That's probably why I find some of it to be so blah sometimes. Take rice for example.

I live in an Asian country where rice is a mainstay of the kitchen. My family has rice with everything - curry, soup, stews, meats and vegetables. It's no surprise. Rice fills you up fast and gives you energy.

Perhaps it's the way rice is being cooked here. Or the type of rice used. I've been eating white rice since god knows when but these days I prefer something more grainy and nutty - think brown rice, red cargo rice, and even buckwheat.

Yes, I do take rice for granted sometimes. Especially white rice. It's not a food that makes me go crazy.

(yea there's always a but. duh!)

At times you realise that the most plain food can be the most exciting when coupled with other ingredients. Why so? Well isn't it simple? Think of it as a plain whiteboard. Would you use a black marker on a whiteboard or a black marker on a blackboard? Most probably the white one ya? That's to ensure high visibility.

Likewise, when it comes to food. It's better sometimes, to jazz up something plain with ingredients that have strong characteristics than try to make a mish mash of too many strong ingredients all fighting for attention. That's the way I see it and I really think it's amazing.

So when I found leftover rice in the fridge the other day. I knew I had to do something about it. Something I've been thinking of doing but never got round to it. I decided to make rice pudding.

I really love puddings because they're so hearty and comforting. To me, puddings convey a very home-y feel and I find that really appealing. Perhaps it's the creaminess? Or the fact that it's full of milk-fat. which is oh so yummy.

I found a recipe that's been used by The Amateur Gourmet and it looked fool-proof. With a name like Rockin' Rice Pudding, how can I not be enticed?

It's a recipe that's so simple, any kid can do it. Seriously! Great for when you want to clear your leftover rice but can't bear to bin it. I hate to waste food. so maybe that's why.

I'm the sort of person who will keep leftover bread that no one wants and turn it into a delicious bread pudding. My friends can attest to that.

Did you think plain rice could taste this good as a dessert? I mean, all I added was some milk, cinnamon, raisins, butter and sugar. I heard that it tastes even better with ice cream. Mmmm..

Gosh, for the first time, I wish the fridge was filled with leftover rice. Maybe I shall start a club or something. So that those of you who are thinking of throwing away your lunch or dinner can actually donate some parts to me. hmm like RICE? hahaha. k that's too lame.

I have to agree with Tyler Florence Rice is indeed nice.

Have it warm, or cold, this rice pudding tastes great either ways. Maybe I'll throw in some nuts next time. give it a bit of crunch.

All right. back to my papers. I have too many deadlines. Thus the inactivity. So pardon me if you had to keep looking at the natto photo everytime you drop by my blog.

Have a great weekend ya'll!

I have to agree with Tyler Florence Rice is indeed nice.

Have it warm, or cold, this rice pudding tastes great either ways. Maybe I'll throw in some nuts next time. give it a bit of crunch.

All right. back to my papers. I have too many deadlines. Thus the inactivity. So pardon me if you had to keep looking at the natto photo everytime you drop by my blog.

Have a great weekend ya'll!

Rockin' Rice Pudding

There are certain foods that bore me and I'm not afraid to say that out loud.

But then again, these 'boring' foods are usually the most commonly used ones. That's probably why I find some of it to be so blah sometimes. Take rice for example.

I live in an Asian country where rice is a mainstay of the kitchen. My family has rice with everything - curry, soup, stews, meats and vegetables. It's no surprise. Rice fills you up fast and gives you energy.

Perhaps it's the way rice is being cooked here. Or the type of rice used. I've been eating white rice since god knows when but these days I prefer something more grainy and nutty - think brown rice, red cargo rice, and even buckwheat.

Yes, I do take rice for granted sometimes. Especially white rice. It's not a food that makes me go crazy.

(yea there's always a but. duh!)

At times you realise that the most plain food can be the most exciting when coupled with other ingredients. Why so? Well isn't it simple? Think of it as a plain whiteboard. Would you use a black marker on a whiteboard or a black marker on a blackboard? Most probably the white one ya? That's to ensure high visibility.

Likewise, when it comes to food. It's better sometimes, to jazz up something plain with ingredients that have strong characteristics than try to make a mish mash of too many strong ingredients all fighting for attention. That's the way I see it and I really think it's amazing.

So when I found leftover rice in the fridge the other day. I knew I had to do something about it. Something I've been thinking of doing but never got round to it. I decided to make rice pudding.

I really love puddings because they're so hearty and comforting. To me, puddings convey a very home-y feel and I find that really appealing. Perhaps it's the creaminess? Or the fact that it's full of milk-fat. which is oh so yummy.

I found a recipe that's been used by The Amateur Gourmet and it looked fool-proof. With a name like Rockin' Rice Pudding, how can I not be enticed?

It's a recipe that's so simple, any kid can do it. Seriously! Great for when you want to clear your leftover rice but can't bear to bin it. I hate to waste food. so maybe that's why.

I'm the sort of person who will keep leftover bread that no one wants and turn it into a delicious bread pudding. My friends can attest to that.

Did you think plain rice could taste this good as a dessert? I mean, all I added was some milk, cinnamon, raisins, butter and sugar. I heard that it tastes even better with ice cream. Mmmm..

Gosh, for the first time, I wish the fridge was filled with leftover rice. Maybe I shall start a club or something. So that those of you who are thinking of throwing away your lunch or dinner can actually donate some parts to me. hmm like RICE? hahaha. k that's too lame.
