The Hamptons are synonymous with parties: Whether it’s dinner on the dunes, post–horse show cocktails, or even family-style barbecues, from Memorial Day to early autumn, Long Island’s East End is truly the playground of the rich and famous. With her new book, Hamptons Entertaining, Annie Falk invites us into the seaside communities’ most beautiful estates. Eighteen lavishly photographed parties are featured, offering a wealth of inspiration for table settings and menus, along with entertaining tips that will serve for any occasion. More than 80 recipes—from a Watermelon Margarita and Cold Peach Soup to Lobster Salad on Buttery Crostini and Panamanian Chicken Pot Pie—highlight seasonal ingredients and local produce. A move from summer to fall serves up desserts like Pumpkin-Spiced Crème Brûlée and Apple Crisp with Caramel Drizzle. Tastemakers

include a glittering array of financial titans, media moguls, and even a former mayor of New York City.
