The East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation will be hosting a cooking demo, tasting, and book signing with Chef John Ross on Friday, July 1st at 7 p.m.
From cooking at home to writing his third book, The Poetry of Cooking
, Chef John Ross has done it all. A professional chef since 1965, he was the chef and owner of Ross' North Fork Restaurant in Southold for 27 years, and is considered a pioneer in the farm-to-table cooking approach. The columnist, author and chef graduated from The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University
. He served as the director of the restaurant management program at Suffolk Community College, and has been featured as a food columnist for the Times/Review News Group
for the last 8 years.
The Poetry of Cooking
, published in 2015, is Ross' third cookbook. The book is organized by the seasonal availability of ingredients, with a section for each month of the year. Ross also included a poem to begin each chapter and what he refers to as "a prime meal indicative of the month." The recipes are easy to follow and can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The North Fork is excited to welcome Chef Ross for a summer of fun, beginning on July 1st. The event at The East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation will feature a cooking demo by Chef Ross, followed by a tasting and book signing. He will be cooking his signature Cedar Grilled Lobster Stew with Scallops - the book's featured July recipe. Guests will be able to explore the Museum's exhibits and watch the sunset over Greenport Harbor as they sip on local Long Island wines and enjoy the stew.
Admission to the event $12 and proceeds support the Museum.
The Museum is located on 3rd Street in Greenport. For a full calendar of events featuring Chef John Ross, visit www.chefjohnross.com.
