"The East End of Long Island is very dear to my heart… In SAVORING THE HAMPTONS, Sylvia takes us with enthusiasm and great allure through the seasons with the locavore food and wines of that special spot, paying tribute to the culture, the integrity and the uniqueness of that extraordinary place."

Louisa Hargrave, author, syndicated columnist, and president of WineWise

"Savoring the Hamptons, is bursting with flavor. Through the seasons, from spring into winter, we share her delight in discovering the East End’s cornucopia of food and wine"

"Lehrer's new cookbook is an awesome compendium of coastal cooking from the true culinary insider of the Hamptons."


Library Journal, 4/15/11

“Lehrer provides a great variety of recipes for year-round pleasure, e.g., Fettuccine with Wild Mushrooms, Wheat Berry Salad with Sugar Snap Peas and Cherry Tomatoes, and East End Clam Pie. Beautiful photographs illustrate why the Hamptons are a favorite vacation spot. Resources for artisans, farms, restaurants, and vineyards are listed. In a foreword, Alan Alda offers more than praise for this cookbook in an ode to the Hamptons and the people who live and cook there.”

The East Hampton Star, 4/20/11
Savoring the Hamptons,’ Silvia Lehrer’s beautiful, comprehensive cookbook featuring everything utterly delicious about the North and South Forks of Long Island, is a book that needed to be written…gorgeous photographs…Regions like Tuscany, Napa Valley, and the South of France have long inspired cookbooks celebrating everything these places have to offer. The North and South Forks have now gotten the book and the recognition they deserve….This is the cookbook for those who revere and respect Long Island’s East End. It is the book to send to friends and family far away, with the inscription ‘This is where we live, and this is why we live here.’”
