Private Chef Chronicles: Summering in the Hamptons (Part 2!)
Well, today is Monday here in the Hamptons. All day. Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop. You know, the super exclusive, utterly fabulous loop of summertime in the Hamptons. I ran into Gwyneth Paltrow the other day at yogalates, and we chatted about the benefits of getting weekly facials and the state of our hydrangeas over nonfat soy lattes.
Nope. That didn’t happen.
What did happen is that I cooked things. I went ahead and cheffed. Privately. I’ve officially been a private chef for 4 weeks now, and this is all I have to show for it:
The good news is that I’m still alive, am still getting paid to cook, and have decidedly mastered the art of the grilled vegetable.
Also, I get to spend my days off sleeping late, doing — or, um, trying my really, really hardest to do — crossword puzzles (Thursdays are hard, yo), and drinking chocolate milkshakes with my gorgeous Grandma.
