The Beach in East Hampton and a Paella Dinner

Last week I told you about how I was honored at the James Beard Foundation’s summer gala, Chefs & Champagne held out on the beautiful East End of Long Island.  That event was so much fun, despite the incredible heat of the day.  The following morning, I woke up early to walk along the ocean, which is so very magnificent.  I always enjoy looking at the stately homes that sit upon the dunes.  Later that evening, I hosted a party for a group of friends.  Chef Pierre Schaedelin, created a fabulous paella and it’s always so much fun to watch him create this meal.
