The Amagansett Food Institute (AFI) and the Southampton Historical Museum are pairing up this August to host what will surely be one of the most delicious events of the summer! On Thursday, August 25th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., the two local staples will be presenting a special "Lost Foods, New Foods: Artisan Cuisine & Wines on the South Fork" event at the Sayre Barn at the Rogers Mansion in Southampton.

The evening will focus on new chefs and food producers that are based on Long Island, who are revitalizing the dining scene by reaching into the past to focus on crops, food, and ways of production used in generations past.

Guests will be invited to try the food and wine made through these back-to-basics ways, as the AFI and Southampton Historical Museum present an array of the best local food, wine, and beverages that are anything but basic in flavor!

"Southampton's locavore movement began 10,000 years ago when Paleo-Indians came to Long Island to hunt wildlife. The Shinnecock Tribe planted corn, beans and squash and English pioneers introduced wheat, oats and domestic farm animals," said Southampton Historical Museum's executive director Ted Edmonds. "This event celebrates our ancient traditions with native foods and the rapidly growing food artisans located on the South Fork."

The event will focus on "reintroducing the diversity of local foods historically available on the East End," including bread from local grains, locally produced cheese, heritage vegetables, local meats, and more. Food and drinks will be provided by local haunts, such as Around the Fire, Joe & Liza's, Carissa's Breads, Hamptons Aristocrat, and more.

Tickets for the night of fine dining will be $125; proceeds will benefit the many local programs run by the AFI and Southampton Historical Museum.

The Sayre Barn at the Rogers Mansion is located at 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more information on the event, or to purchase tickets, visit www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.
