Time For Tea Taste Of The Upper West Side

If you know me, you know I love a good tea party. When I heard about a Mother's Day Afternoon Tea happening at The Hempstead House in Sands Point, coincidentally the home where my grandmother grew up, I knew it was meant to be. So, my family and I 28

Nonstop Dabbles Heavy At MMF

By Kitty Merrill

“One guy, cooler than the next.” Fans might use the refrain from “Get the Girl,” to describe the members of Nonstop to Cairo. Surely, the crowd crammed into Amityville Music Hall last January for the launch of NonStop’s latest album, Dabble Heavy, would.

Perched atop the drum set platform in the sold out venue, Alex Turner had a bird’s eye view of audience members singing along even as the newly released cds went on sale for the first time. Fans already knew the words to their songs, how did that feel? “It felt like a dream,” Turner replied.

“It was a wonderful feeling, I must say,” founding member Nick Diamond offered. “It was something that’s always been missing . . . to have that on that night, it felt like we’d accomplished something.”

Independent / Kitty Merrill August Harris and Nick Diamond at the Memory in 2014. Nonstop to Cairo returns to the Montauk Music Festival this weekend.

They’ve accomplished plenty since the late 90s when Diamond (guitar, vocals) began jamming with bassist Matt Ezzo in high school. Fellow Baldwin native August Harris (vocals) joined the pair and since 2009 Nonstop has toured the East Coast developing a cult following. Turner and Andrew Joseph on lead sax round out the quintet whose sound could be described as some ska, some hip hop, some funk, and a heaping helping of charisma and juice.


Dabble Heavy is an aural portrait of all those traits as well as a glimpse at an array of emotions that comprise the human condition. There’s party tunage for sure, but the disc also brings depth -- a little angst in “Get the Girl,” a little frustration in “Not Allison,” a little insecurity tinged with hope in “Chicken in My Oats,” as in, “I wake up every day as if the sun believes in me.” The latter song is a fan – and music critic’s -- favorite. Afropunk contributing writer Nathan Leigh called it one of the band’s best. He said Nonstop is “one of the few ska bands to do something really new with the genre in at least a decade.” Everyone had a hand in crafting the songs on Dabble Heavy, Diamond explained. “Matt or myself would bring a song idea,

the initial structure. But it doesn’t become a song till we sit with it with everybody and everybody puts their flavor on it.” An uber-proficient percussionist, Turner contributes tasty beats that never overwhelm, adding subtle layers to each song, keeping the energy, as he’s fond of saying, “Wayup!”

Ezzo is a spectacle at shows. With a trademark huge grin behind sexy nerd glasses, he weaves through the audience or jumps across the stage, a dervish with a guitar. On tenor sax, Joseph underwrites Nonstop’s singular sound. At the Music Hall in January, he helmed a horn section featuring guest musicians. On Dabble Heavy this versatile musician provides the foundation upon which colleagues erect exuberance. Harris’ flavor – “Keeping cool, spitting fire through the sound byte”— draws listeners to another standout Dabble Heavy offering, “Influenzska,” with classic rap bravado foreplay to Diamond’s crystal clear evocative vocals.

“Always give them more than they expected. Coming with the live in your direction. Surely to be legends on our exit.”

Maybe their Montauk Music Festival debut in 2012, opening for buddies Oogee Wawa (MC Jess Lee jumps in for a verse on “Intro”) at The Point in 2012, wasn’t the stuff of legend – unless you were lucky enough to be there, or part of the sweat soaked bachelorette party dancing with Harris and Ezzo.

Members returned to close out the festival at the Memory in 2014 and this weekend, there are seven – count em, seven -- opportunities to see them at the MMF. Don’t miss what Good Times magazine called, “A one way ticket to first place.” Nonstop to Cairo plays Atlantic Terrace (5 PM), Memory Motel (7PM), and Shagwong (12 AM) beginning Friday. On Saturday find them back at the Memory at 7 PM, and Tauk at midnight. Sunday they’ll hit the pavilion on the green at 1 PM and finish out the weekend at Zum Schneider at 7 PM.

Local Mom’s Treats At Hampton Coffee

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

A big part of Hampton Coffee Company’s business philosophy has always been supporting local business. On the shelves at any of their locations you will find great products from local small businesses like Simply Made mugs and Copia Bars. Hampton Coffee has recently added a delicious afternoon dessert selection. One that is made with a lot of TLC.

Locally-baked and handmade “Zuzi’z Zookiez Linzer Tartz” are available at all four of Hampton Coffee Company’s family-owned espresso bars and cafés throughout The Hamptons.

A local mom from Westhampton Beach named Zuzana, with a sweet tooth and a love for baking, has created Zuzi’z Zookiez, which include deliciously delicate linzer tart cookies. Zuzi’z began as a


home-based business but has since moved into the Stony Brook University Business Incubator in Calverton as her treats have gained more fans and her company has grown. In the kitchen Zuzana zests lemons by hand, cracks eggs one-by-one separating the yolks from the whites, and mixes the rest of the linzer tart ingredients

- appropriately calling the bright batter “Yellow Heaven.” Once the batter is rolled-out, Zuzana cuts it by hand and bakes each batch to perfection. The tarts get their raspberry filling spread by hand, and then they’re sandwiched together and individually dusted with confectioners’ sugar.

Recipe Of The Week by Chef Joe Cipro

Gemelli With Duck Confit Ingredients 4 duck legs 1/2 c sugar 1 c salt

1 tbsp black peppercorns (ground) 1 tsp star anise (ground) 10 tomatoes

2 cloves of garlic sliced thin 1/4 c olive oil

1 lb dried gemelli pasta

1 c mâché leaves (washed) grated Parmesan

1 cup diced butter nut squash 1/2 sliced leeks 2 tbsp butter

1 gallon duck fat or canola oil will work in a pinch

When the duck legs are ready, remove them from the oven and use a slotted spoon to remove them from the hot oil. Place them on a towel and let them cool until they can be handled. When they are cool pick the duck meat. 

You are now ready to cook the pasta. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta stirring often

for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a large sauté pan. Add a bit of olive oil and sauté the leeks and squash. When the squash gets a bit of color add the sauce, then the duck. When the pasta is cooked add the pasta and the butter. Garnish with the mash and grated cheese. Enjoy!

Japanese RestauRant and sushi BaR

Salt and pepper to your liking

Method You will start the night before you are going to serve this dish. The duck legs need to sit in the cure overnight before you confit them. Start by mixing the salt, sugar, and spices together then generously coating the duck legs. Cover and let sit in the fridge over night. 

When you are ready to begin cooking, set your oven to 350. Wash the excess cure from the duck legs and pat them dry. Find a large oven proof vessel to cook the duck legs in. Submerge them in the fat. Either duck fat if you can find it or canola oil will work fine.  Place in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes, just to get the oil up to temperature. Reduce the heat to 275 and let the duck legs cook for three and a half more hours. 

While the duck legs are cooking you can dice the leeks and squash.

Go ahead and make your tomato sauce by first cutting the top off the tomatoes. Put them in the oven with the duck legs for 15 minutes. When you remove the tomatoes from the oven, allow them to cool for 10 minutes, then simply peel the skin off. Crush them with your hand, then on the stove top in a large sauce pot. Heat the olive oil and garlic but do not brown the garlic. Put the tomato into the pot and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.
