In 1980, Anna Pump opened the Loaves & Fishes Food Store and ever since, the store has served fine prepared foods for takeaway to Sagaponack, East Hampton and its extended Hamptons community. The family has grown and so too have the family’s businesses and culinary repertoire, with the addition of the Bridgehampton Inn & Restaurant in 1994 and the Loaves and Fishes Cookshop in 2003.
The Loaves & Fishes Food Store in Sagaponack remains a homegrown business to this day — in the kitchen you will find Anna’s daughter Sybille van Kempen, alongside her own son, Stefan.
Now van Kempen is excited to announce a new farm-to-table cookbook series featuring local Long Island farms with all new recipes from the Loaves and Fishes kitchen. The Loaves & Fishes Farm Series will include 12 volumes — one for each month of the year — with new recipes from the gourmet food store.
Following the success of her “Bridgehampton Inn and Restaurant Look + Cook Book” in 2019, van Kempen teamed up with chef Licia Kassim Householder to celebrate farm-fresh ingredients and take a closer look at the generations of farmers who grow them. Each volume visits a family farm with dynamic photographs, highlights six of their finest seasonal ingredients, and includes 20 or more recipes.
Flavorful summer favorites include Beet Horseradish Smørrebrød, Zucchini Chicken Burgers, Heirloom Tomato Tarts, and crowd-pleasing desserts such as Strawberry Almond Galettes, Cherry Hand Pies and Nectarine Kuchen.
To be released in seasonal trios, the series kicks off with the summer months — June, July, and August — on sale beginning July 9. The fall trio — September, October, November — will follow in September 2020. The summer collection of three volumes is currently available for pre-order on LoavesandFishes.us for $50.
