Peanut Butter – It’s the simple pleasures in life that make me happy. Peanut Butter has got to be one of the most simple foods (yes, it’s a food) and yet it’s one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted. I eat it swirled into my oatmeal with bananas, on Ezekiel bread with fresh strawberries, in stews, thai dishes, on a spoon straight out of the jar… yes, I went there. Peanut butter flows through my veins and my life wouldn’t be the same without it.

From Beer to There: Petit Verdot & Greenport Harbor’s Black Duck Porter

As cold snaps begin to descend upon us here on the North Fork, we look to find solace in heartier beverages.

These two hearty souls are the topic of today's...

In the NoFo: Top 3 Cozy Winter Spots on the North Fork



I’m not too sure at this point whether or not summer actually happened. It’s mid-December. How did we get here!? The patio is empty, the awning has been put away. Crowds are winding down in the tasting room, and many of our low-key wine club members/locals are finally coming out of hiding (hi guys!). You might even catch a glimpse of me standing still for more than two seconds. For all of us in the industry, the winter is for catching up. It’s for taking a breath and taking care of...

Five Favorite Things – Becca Rock

1) Bicycle Helmet: I ride my bike EVERYWHERE in Brooklyn and now that I’ve been commuting this way for years I don’t know how I ever lived without it. I’ve never been one for subtlety when it comes to accessories and the moment I saw this helmet it was a done deal. I really knew I was winning at safety fashion the first time I saw a six-year-old wearing the exact same one while riding a Razor scooter.

2) Rewined Candle: I’ve always been big on the concept of certain scents bringing...
