Hilary's Table

I love the site Hilary's Table.  Hilary is a Rye resident who started her business after graduating from the Peter Kump's Institute of Culinary Education and working in some of the finest New York restaurants, such as The 21 Club, Sign of the Dove and Lespinasse.  She wrote a wonderful book and recipe box, "My Wonderful A-Z Recipe Book/Box"  Hilary offers cooking classes, consultations and more.   Her recipes are amazing and she so generously offered to share them with you during the next few months!  I cannot wait.  Her latest offering is Farmers Market Fritatta.
