A Guest Blog from Gabe on His Vacation to the Galápagos

During this year’s summer excursion to the Galápagos with my daughter and grandchildren, we met a lot of fun and interesting people, including 11-year old Gabe. Gabe was also visiting the Islands with his family, and like myself, is an avid photographer. Here is a selection of his favorite photos and thoughts from the trip.

My summer vacation in the Galápagos was very exciting. We spent about two-weeks on a boat, and it just happened to be the same one as Martha Stewart! I was glad to become friends with her grandchildren, Jude and Truman, and their friend, Max.

I enjoyed all the activities, especially walking on the Islands and taking pictures of the many landscapes and wild animals. I loved visiting the "Chinese Hat", a tiny island just off the southeastern tip of Santiago Island - it got its name because it has the shape of a down-facing Chinese hat. Most of the animals were easy to photograph. Sometimes the sea lions got a little aggressive, but they were still my favorite animals to visit, along with the green sea turtles.

I took a lot of photographs - these are just some of my favorites. Enjoy.

Dinner at Daniel

The next time you’re in New York City, and want to treat yourself to a very special and most luxurious feast, go to Daniel - you will love it.

Earlier this week, several colleagues joined me for a wonderful dinner at Daniel, the extraordinary flagship establishment owned by my friend and celebrated chef, Daniel Boulud. Daniel is one of my favorite restaurants and one of New York’s most prestigious dining destinations. The Michelin-starred Relais & Châteaux member serves award-winning, contemporary cuisine inspired by the seasons and rooted in French tradition.

At Daniel, we enjoyed many spectacular dishes that included mouth-watering canapes, fresh oysters and sea scallops, and a delectable selection of desserts. Enjoy these photos.

An August Harvest and My Newest Book

This time of year is always fun at the farm because there’s so much to harvest in the vegetable garden. I look forward to having a new supply of farm-grown produce to use in cooking and in salads.

Today, I am also bringing a lot of vegetables to our New York City offices for my next Facebook LIVE at 430pm ET. Be sure to join me - I'll be making blistered eggplant with tomatoes, olives and feta cheese from my NEW cookbook, “Martha Stewart’s Vegetables". And, I'll be giving away several copies to select followers and viewers. I am so excited about this new book - it is an indispensable resource for selecting, storing, preparing and cooking your favorite vegetables. It will be in bookstores September 6th, but you can also pre-order your copy today!

My vegetable gardens at my Bedford, New York farm are looking great. Here are photos from yesterday's harvest. Enjoy - and get your questions ready for today's Facebook LIVE!
