Bestselling author Julie Salamon was at the school last Wednesday to talk about her most recent book, “Mutt’s Promise,” which has been endorsed by the Humane Society for its message. She is an animal rights activist and she talked to our students about the creative process, literary matters and puppy mills.
The apprenticeships have been going full steam in Charlie Freij’s class. Students will continue to work in the community until Monday, November 21. In the weeks following the apprenticeships, students will write essays and create presentations about their experience as an apprentice.
The long-term culinary arts apprenticeship has been a real success. So far chefs Mike Ruggiero, Eddie Schall and Sarah Phoon from Nick and Toni’s in East Hampton have led the group to make chicken marseille, cornbread casserole, flourless chocolate cookies, and a plethora of sides. Chef Colin Ambrose from Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor made turkey burgers, fries, salad and apple crumb cake with our students. Last week Joan Turturro from the Orient Inn on the North Fork madee paella.
