First Annual Edible Business Conference

The new Food Lab at Stony Brook Southampton presents the first annual Edible Business Conference June 5-7th, bringing together today’s leading thinkers in food business, media, and policy. The conference is organized around the interests and needs of people working at all links in the food chain—from farmers to foodtech startups, investors to next-wave food enthusiasts, policy makers to agribusiness executive.

BreadThe panels, presentations and other events at the conference are as much about economic development and successful business models as they are about the latest trends and techniques in delivering sustainable farm-to-table, healthy and delicious food and beverages. This inaugural event kicks off with a tasting at the Southampton campus on Friday night, featuring food and drink makers assembled by Edible East End magazine and entertainment by DJ Carlos Lama. Saturday’s agenda includes engaging discussions and presentations on food business, meat and seafood, and the alcohol industry, informative and unusual tastings, and a meal prepared by East End chefs. Sunday features a morning networking session as well as a discussion of socially-purposed food businesses.

Attendees will have access to affordable accommodations on campus, as well as guides to enjoying food and drink experiences around the conference. Tickets for the three-day conference are $259. For more information, visit thefoodlab.org or contact Kathleen.Russo@stonybrook.edu.

Worth The Trip: Stone Creek Inn

I recently headed out to Quogue with my boyfriend’s family to celebrate his birthday at the Stone Creek Inn. We’d been once before, about two years ago, and I couldn’t remember much, so I was excited to try it again. I must admit, about half way through the drive, we all wondered why we decided to go so far for dinner, (about 45 minutes from Sag Harbor) but once we had our first taste, we all knew it was well worth the trip.

401584_303190346386468_1037186245_nI would describe the dining room (rooms, actually) as “fancy-cozy.” The atmosphere is inviting, (maybe not super inviting to young kids) comfortable, classy, and a great place to share a meal with family or friends.

The menu stood out to me at first glance because of the abundance of options, something kind of distinct from most Hamptons’ restaurants. Everyone likes options. There’s an appetizer for any taste, and Stone Creek makes it easy to share…or, not. (I chose not ;-))

Soon after being seated, we received shots of tomato soup (nothin’ wrong with a little gift from the chef!) It was delicious; creamy, fresh, and flavorful. I decided to start with a roasted beet & baby arugula salad, one of three salad choices. Other starters included grilled octopus, mussel & chive ravioli, duck meatballs, tuna or steak tartar, and a variety of cheese plates, to accompany Stone Creek’s renowned wine list. It’s clear that each dish and beverage is carefully thought out and often change with the season. Although I like to be able to depend on menu staples when I’m a returning customer, I love the refreshing reminder that entrees change with the season to utilize the best local in-season goods.


The tuna tartare looked amazing and, according to two at our table, tasted just as good too.  My salad was good; it hit the spot and the yellow beets added a fresh sweetness. I liked that it was served in a bowl, as opposed to on a plate, a minute detail that makes for easier cutting. I’m a fan of eating salads out of bowls and I like that Stone Creek is too.

The food came out timely, not too fast or too slow. The service is also great, our waitress was helpful and kind, but not overly chatty; she got the job done, well. More than a few entrées stood out to me; local roasted chicken with sautéed greens and honey balsamic jus…yum. Although I typically opt for seafood (and Stone Creek offers quite a seafood spread) the herb and mustard crusted rack of lamb caught my eye and when the waitress recommended it, I was convinced. I eat red meat very rarely, so when I do, it’s got to be good. And it was.

The lamb was perfectly cooked, tender, but nice and charred around the bone. The sautéed spring greens and crunchy baby carrots underneath were equally delicious. Props to the chef (that’s Christian Mir.)

I opted out of dessert, but the chocolate decaf tea intrigued me, it was good, an interesting twist on an after dinner drink. Overall, this visit to Stone Creek was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while, and the company agreed. The birthday boy ate every last bite of that strawberry cake.
