Sound View in Greenport is offering a new kind of afternoon delight. It’s Instagram Live with cooking and cocktail classes from The Halyard Restaurant, hosted by Executive Chef Stephan Bogardus and General Manager Derick Erwee. The four sessions last approximately 10 to 15 minutes each.
“We are really taking our connection to community to the next digital level to substitute, as best we can, the human-to-human energy,” owner Erik Warner said. “In times of self-isolation, folks are becoming lonely and looking back to the places they have great memories. We are going to do everything we can to be there. We can’t just turn off the lights during this period of darkness.”
Each session allows those tuning in to ask questions as they learn new techniques and insider facts about the North Fork region.
“We want to do everything we can to keep the community engaged with each other. We hope this effort provides a platform for everyone to come together during a time of social distancing using the most social activity we all know, drinking and eating,” said general manager Derrick Erwee.
The lineup begins this weekend on Saturday, March 21, with a cocktail class on Gin and Shrubs, followed by a cooking class guiding through a French Style Organic Omelet with Ira’s Biodynamic Greens (from KK’s the Farm) on Sunday, March 22. Next weekend, the fun continues on Saturday, March 28, with a cocktail class on Tonics and concludes on Sunday, March 29, with a cooking class on Vinaigrettes and Salads. All classes begin at 4 PM and will also be available through IGTV and Instagram Live for 24 hours.
“While we cannot welcome you to the restaurant, we can share some ways to still have a good time and help you pass the time while learning about how we operate,” Bogardus concluded.
