Invite a good mix of people that you know will get along. 2. Set the table the day before. 3. Make something you have made before and are pleased with the result. Think simple—you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen all night. 4. Play mellow music in the background (not too loud). 5. Have enough drinks to serve. 6. Make sure there is enough ice available. 7. Create mood lighting—we all look so much better in soft candlelight. 8. Light a scented candle in the bathroom. 9. Use linen napkins (please!). 10. Don’t even think about doing the dishes. Nothing kills the momentum of a party as much as a host disappearing into the kitchen. There is always later (or the next day).

  2. 2. Ramps are wild onions, sometimes called wild leaks or wild garlic, with a mild garlic taste and very woodsy aroma. Both the buds and leaves are edible.They are only in season from April to early June and can be stored for up to a week in your fridge, wrapped in some damp paper towels. For longer storage, coarsely chop the stalks and freeze. You can also air-dry the leaves and use as a spice. w Ramps and Watercress Soup with Yogurt This mild and creamy soup is such a great appetizer. Serves 6 2 tablespoons butter 3 leeks, thinly sliced 10 ramps, thinly sliced 1 cup water 1 cup chicken stock 1 cup milk 1 large potato, peeled and cut into cubes Salt and pepper, to taste 1 bunch watercress, washed 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup plain yogurt Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add leeks and ramps and sauté until tender, approx. 8 to 10 minutes. Add water, stock, milk and potato. Bring to a boil and let the soup simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add watercress and Parmesan; cook 3 more minutes. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the soup into serving glasses (about 1 /3 full); add a layer of yogurt. Fill glass with the rest of the soup. w F o o d + S t y l i n g b y P a u l l o w e | P h o t o g r a P h y b y e l l e n S i l v e r m a n They MighT look SMAll And innocenT To you, BuT TheSe liTTle “wild oneS” Are Big when iT coMeS To TASTe And SMell.

If you can, try making your own bread crumbs—it will bring the flavor up a couple of notches. Serves 4 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for serving 20 ramps, chopped 2 teaspoons red chilie flakes Pinch of salt 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs 1 pound dry linguine Heat oil in a medium pan and add ramps. Sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add red chilie flakes and salt. Cook pasta al dente in salted water. Drain pasta and add to pan. Toss gently. Divide pasta between 4 plates. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Paul’s tips! Try making bread crumbs using brioche bread for enhanced flavor. Break the bread apart with your hands and crumble into small pieces. Place on a baking tray and bake at 300°F, until dry and a bit golden, about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container. 26 | S w e e t P a u l .

Cotton tape* Start with 3 sweet peas together, then place 3 and 3 sweet peas around the middle to form a spiral. (If you place them that way instead of just adding them together, they will fan out more nicely and appear fuller.) Bind them off with a piece of string.

I filled this one with a whole bunch of sweet peas and placed it on an old chair with a piece of coral for that vintage feeling. What you’ll need: One chair Vintage glass cloche Snow peas Coral Fill the snow peas inside the cloche; spray a little water inside so that they will last a few hours. Place it on the chair and decorate with a piece of coral. top Can you tell which flowers are the real ones and which are fake? If you guessed the pink sweet peas as real, you’d be right! All I did was fasten sweet peas on the top with small safety pins. Unfortunately, the flowers will not hold for hours and hours, but they will last long enough to make a statement and for you to be the talk of the party. Spring Blooms.indd 69 4/28/10 11:01:33 PM AheAd of the Curvearchitect Michael loMont designed an eco-friendly house in sagaponack for his faMily without sacrificing coMfort by Deborah Snoonian | photographS by eric Striffler Modern Kids | Michael and Nancy Lomont outfitted their eco-friendly Sagaponack home with midcentury-modern furnishings. Daughters Marielle, 3, left, and Laina, 5 (opposite), lie on a Mies van der Rohe Barcelona daybed at the top of the stairs. all in one | On the first floor, an open rectangular space contains the kitchen, living and dining rooms. In the living area (this page), an Eero Saarinen side table sits next to a pair of vintage early 1970s Danish lounge chairs. Just beyond, a covered porch fil- ters afternoon sunlight. See Resources. nippy winter months the concrete floor absorbs the sun’s heat and releases it at night. The Lomonts bought many of the Danish and midcentury-modern furnishings for these rooms through eBay. “That’s part of the re-use side of sustainability,” Michael says. The living space feels larger than it is thanks to a deck on the south side, as well as a separate covered porch west of the living room that filters the afternoon sunlight. (Two porches—why not?) Lomont says the public spaces are his favorite part of the house: “The details are very simple and it has a real Zen presence in its simplicity.” The layout was designed in part for efficient zoning of the heating and air conditioning system. Thermostats are connected to timers and operate only when rooms are in use. “It doesn’t make sense to burn energy when you don’t have to,” Lomont says. clean Slate | A red IKEA chair brightens a corner in the generously sized guest bedroom (left), which can be closed off when no one’s visiting. What Wood you Use? | The wood flooring (above) is made of regionally harvested quartersawn oak with an oil finish. Whenever possible, Lomont used sustainably harvested woods certified through the Forest Stewardship Council. Modern Zen | Italian leather bar stools (below) line the kitchen counter. cabinet Member | Looking into the master bedroom (opposite), an Eames Eiffel Tower chair is tucked into cabinets that were designed by Lomont and crafted by Dune Woodworking in Amagansett. See Resources. 56 hamptons cottages & gardens hcandg.com 06.15.2007 Outside, the landscaping saves both water and energy. Since the house is close to the street, a large front yard was unnecessary. Mature trees both shade the house in summer and prevent the site’s topsoil from eroding—a common prob- lem in overdeveloped suburban areas. Aside from a small patch of turf where their children play in the backyard, the area around the house is planted with native and drought- tolerant flora requiring little maintenance or irrigation. Lomont did pay a premium for some of the more com- plex (and largely invisible) green features. To keep the house free of energy-sapping drafts, he used foam insulation that was blown into the wall cavities rather than conventional insulation cut to fit and installed by hand. The geothermal heating and cooling system uses water pumped through a system of underground pipes to remove hot (or cool) air and transfer it deep into the earth; solar panels installed above the covered porch provide enough energy to power this system. Lomont estimates that each of these tech- niques costs 20 to 25 percent more than standard materials or systems, even with rebates from the Long Island Power Authority (for the geothermal and solar systems) and state and federal rebates and tax incentives (for the solar panels). Still, he isn’t too concerned; he figures they’ll make up the difference over time with lower utility bills. Though Lomont, his wife Nancy and their two chil- dren, Marielle and Laina, moved in last summer, he doesn’t consider their house finished. “Any architect who tells you he’s completely happy with a home he built himself is lying,” he says. This fall he plans to install a green roof, as well as additional solar panels. “This is a work in progress. The technology is changing rapidly and the prices are com- ing down, too. The next generation of products and tech- nology will help more people do this.” That may be true. In the meantime, Lomont’s efficient and unpretentious family home is already way ahead of the curve. children’s hour | Marielle, left, and Laina (this page) play in their bedroom, one of two that they share. It’s outfitted with a bed from West Elm. To maintain healthy indoor air, Lomont used low-VOC paints from Benjamin Moore. take cover | Teak furniture from Rumrunner in East Hampton sits on the covered porch (opposite top left), whose roof is lined with solar panels. Up on top | All of the roofs are made of durable zinc-coated aluminum (opposite top right), which is recyclable at the end of its 75- year life. let there be light | The master bedroom (opposite bottom) faces east to take advantage of the early morning light.

This is stirred into the milk with a propeller-like agitator. As the mixture ripens, the culture consumes lactose and turns it into lactic acid. The addition of rennet, a curdling agent, causes the mixture to gelatinize. After this happens, Ludlow begins to separate the gloppy curds from the watery whey with a curd harp, a simple frame supporting a series of thin wires. When the curd becomes firmer, it is removed from the steam kettle with a basket and emptied into cheesecloth-covered molds, where it remains for 24–48 hours. nice texture | The cheesecloth (this page) prevents air spaces from marring the cheese’s surface. See Resources. 66 All cheese starts with milk, of course, and Ludlow prefers milk from Jersey cows because it has a high fat content (five percent) and a better fat-to-pro- tein ratio than that of other breeds. After the milk is transferred from the milking buckets to the bulk tank, it is cooled from its natural 101 degrees down to 35 degrees. Ludlow then pumps the liquid into a 168-gallon steam kettle, where it is heated to 90 degrees. After adding a bacterial cul- ture to the raw milk—roughly three teaspoons per 60–80 gallons—Ludlow mixes it with a propeller-like agitator and lets it sit anywhere from 90 min- utes to three or four hours, depending upon the kind of cheese being made. Soft ripened cheese, for example, requires an hour and 45 minutes, and cheddar needs about four hours. (The culture or combination of cultures, along with a “post-ripening treatment,” determines the cheese variety.) As the mixture sits and the culture consumes lactose, turning it into lactic acid, Ludlow adds an enzyme coagulan called rennet, which turns the liquid into a gloppy, gelatinous mass. Then he uses a curd harp—a simple frame supporting a series of thin wires—to cut the mass into small cubes (about 3/8 inches). This causes the liquid, or whey, to be released from the solid, or curd. H then stirs the mixture as the whey is released and the curd becomes firmer. Finally, Ludlow removes the now-rubbery curd with a scoop and dumps it into cheesecloth-covered molds where it sits for 24–48 hours. When remove he rolls the cheese in salt, which improves flav and encourages mold and fungi to grow on t surface, creating a rind that seals the moistur inside. Then the aging begins. Mecox Bay Dairy now produces five cheeses, all made from raw, unpasteurized milk. (By law such cheeses must age for at least 60 days before sale.) Atlantic Mist, a creamy cheese similar to Camembert, is aged for 60 days an has a white rind. Sigit, a gruyere cheese, ages anywhere from 14–16 months and has a nutt flavor. Shawondasee, a semi-hard variety who name derives from Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha”—in Part II, the “Father of the Winds of Heaven” gave the “South Wind” to his son, Shawondasee—age up to eight months and has a natural rind tomme and a mild flavor with a slightly fruity finish. Mecox Sunrise, a “washed rind” cheese (so-called because the mold and fungi is washed away during the aging process to allow non-harmful bacteria to flourish, thus creating a more pungent, “smelly” cheese) ages 60–90 days. New this year to Mecox Bay Dairy is a cheddar, which can age up to four years. Aside from his brother Harry’s farm stand, Ludlow sells his cheese at several Hamptons locations including Green Thumb in Water Mill, Bob’s Village Market in Bridgehampton, Village Cheese Shop and Schmidt’s Market in Southampton and Cavaniola Gourmet and IGA in Sag Harbor. But there are certain varieties he can’t sell. “I have severa cheeses that I call faux pas,” Ludlow says, dryly. “But in cheese making, even the mistakes taste good.” sweet release | Heifers (left) mingle outside of the barn housing the milking room. rolling Along | After removing the cheese from the molds, Ludlow rolls the wheels in salt (opposite top left) which improves flavor and encourages mold and fungi to grow on the surface, creating a rind. nice scent | Smellier cheeses are washed with a salt and water solution (opposite bottom left) to remove the mold and thus encourage non-harmful bacte- ria to grow, which increases the pungency. Aging gracefully | Cheeses age on shelves (opposite top right) anywhere from 60 days to four years. Big Variety | Mecox Bay Dairy offers five different kinds of cheeses (opposite bottom right), includ- ing a cheddar, which is new this year. See Resources.
