You probably know her as the co-host of Unique Eats on the Cooking Channel. Or perhaps you've read her cookbook, Forking Fantastic! Maybe you've even been lucky enough to partake in one of her famous backyard dinner parties as a part of the Sunday Night Dinner supper club.
Regardless if you have met our neighborhood celebrity chef and hostess while gathering seasonal goodies at Astoria markets, this summer is the perfect time to enjoy a farm-to-table meal prepared by Tamara Reynolds herself. As she is presently shopping a pilot of a new t.v. show featuring her and her adorable husband, this might be the last summer to dine with her before she becomes a household name... though I have a feeling she'll always keep Astoria close.
