Elegant North Fork Dinner Party

When there's a dinner party on
the agenda, the Markel girls are 
cooking in Orient
Time for a time-out on the North Fork of Long Island. This August the Markel sisters (Carol, Susan and Jeanne) got together at Jeanne's house for a few days of relaxing, shopping, scrabble with our brother, David, and preparing a dinner party.
 The most important part of the visit,
seeing Jeanne's wonderful dog, Fern.
 Jeanne planned an activity.
A visit to the North Fork Flower Farm.
Susan stands amid a field of Zinnias.
 This is the bunch we brought home.
 On our first night we dined at Caci in Southold.
Joining us were David and his daughter, Samantha.
This is Caci's heirloom tomato salad with basil sorbet.
It is heavenly.
 No sister time is complete without shopping.
We spent a day in Sag Harbor on the South Fork.
 Susan and Jeanne in a Sag Harbor shop.
 Shopping for berries at a Southold farm stand.
 The table is set for our dinner party 
at Jeanne's house.
 The chefs are busy preparing the night's menu.
Classic Gougeres
Chicken Soutine with Black Olives
Local Green Beans with Toasted Almonds
Corn, Feta Cheese and Tomato Salad
Blueberry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream
 A tranquil evening on Peconic Bay
with our guests, Ekta and Mark. We are enjoying
 our gougeres and Ekta's tuna tartare.
Jeanne made us Negronis.
Dinner is served Chez Markel.
