Attending Ricky Lauren's Book Party

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a very special book party.  Ricky Lauren, the wife of fashion icon Ralph Lauren, was celebrating her fourth book, The Hamptons:  Food, Family, and History,” at the flagship Ralph Lauren Women and Home store on Madison Avenue in Manhattan.  During the past forty years, the Lauren family, (Ralph, Ricky, Andrew, David, and Dylan) have shared homes in four different parts of the Hamptons:  Southampton, Amagansett, East Hampton, and Montauk.  Each of those homes is presented in this book, along with favorite recipes, Ricky’s watercolors, photographs, and written family history.  It’s really quite charming!
