Cedar Grilled Lobster Stew

Chef John Ross, author of The Poetry of Cooking will be appearing at The East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation in Greenport, New York on Friday, July 1st at 7pm. The legendary North Fork Chef, restaurateur, manager, educator, columnist, writer and home cook will be firing up his ‘little green egg’ grill and cooking Cedar Grilled Lobster Stew with Scallops. There will be tasting samples of his signature dish (along with local wine) prepared from his newest release, The Poetry of Cooking. The book illustrates how easy it is for anyone to cook delicious, healthy meals from fresh, locally sourced ingredients any month of the year. This event will be a testament to that.

Set against the backdrop of the Greenport Harbor, the event will offer guests the experience of an authentic Long Island summer experience at a Museum steeped in the area’s marine history. Sampling a taste of the abundance the local waters have been offering for years gone by, guests will also enjoy the architecture, history lessons, and exhibitions on display inside and out.

$12.00 Museum Admission charge for the event.  All are welcome to enjoy the evening, which is bound to be a memorable event for anyone who attends.


Released in the Fall of 2015, The Poetry of Cooking, Ross’ third cookbook, is organized by seasonal availability rather than ingredients, adapting many of the recipes from The North Fork Chef column Ross has written for The Suffolk Times and Riverhead News Review since March 2008. Divided into the twelve months of the year, each section of the book begins with a food-related poem selected by Ross and is followed by what he describes as a prime meal indicative of the month. Other recipes follow along with photos taken by Ross and other local photographers.
