Hamptons Private Chef Shopping Secrets

There are two kinds of Hamptons hosts. There are those who understand the importance of talking about lunch over the first cup of coffee. And then there are the hosts who welcome traffic-weary travelers with a box of dried spaghetti and an offer of “help yourself.”

I don’t want to fall into that latter category, and I’m sure you don’t want to be there, either, so celebrity chef and caterer Alex Goldman of Five Senses Catering is here to help make sure it doesn’t happen to any of us.

Classically trained and charismatic, Goldman is the go-to chef for everyone from Madonna to Liza (and many others known by one name only). He has a particular affinity for the Hamptons, as he grew up in Quogue and maintains a house there that he uses as a base for his business during the season.

Whether you have a private chef at your disposal or you’re dancing in the market aisles solo before getting underway in the kitchen—which can be so much fun!—your Hamptons home is going to be the place guests will want to call their home away from home…once you embrace Chef Alex’s essential guide to stocking your kitchen for every summer weekend. It’s all about the food, and here are his go-to spots:
