Instagram is so full of #EEEEATS these days, it’s hard to scroll through your news feed without salivating — especially in the summer, when shots of fresh produce are more popular than selfies. It's the perfect motivation to get over your fear of cooking from scratch and wow your own followers with foodie-approved snaps.
...Except, we're no Danny Amend. So, we teamed up with Ford to invite our friends from The New Potato over to the R29 Montauk Beach House for a lesson in DIY organic cooking. Never ones to avoid a kitchen (even when it's not their own), sisters Danielle and Laura Kosann hopped into a Ford Escape and hit up the town's produce stands for the best locally grown ingredients. Oh, and they shared their secrets to navigating the markets on (where else?) Instagram, so anyone can DIY these dishes.
Not only did they earn their keep for the weekend with an amazing spread, they convinced us that even we can serve up a 'gram-worthy meal using just local ingredients. Ahead, they walk you through their farm-to-table adventure. Get inspired to cook up a dish to remember — seconds (and thirds) are highly encouraged.
