Southampton, N.Y. – A monthly Live Zoom cooking show will take place in the kitchen of one of the last, private Gilded Age estate in Southampton. The program takes place on the first Thursday of every month beginning Thursday, June 4 at 11:00 am. The first Zoom program will feature how to make a rhubarb pie using organic, home grown produce and is hosted by the Southampton History Museum.

The program features Mrs. Peter A. Salm, also known as The Countess von Salm-Hoogstraeten, and her private chef, Brian Hetrich. The vast kitchen is located inside the Port of Missing Men which was built by H.H. Rogers, Jr., whose father was the richest man in 1910.

Chef Brian is a raw vegan chef, Master Grower, speaker and author from West Palm Beach, Florida. He’s been living and counseling others on the raw food lifestyle for over 13 years. “In my practice, I emphasize the harmonious integration of body, mind and spirit,” he says. “I feel very strongly in using superior nutrition combined with the judicial use of select herbs, pure water, sensible exercise, effective detoxification protocols and other lifestyle factors in order for anyone to realize superior health.”

The Countess has a well-cared for, organic vegetable garden which is the major source of produce for all meals served at the estate. Like Brian, she promotes healthy living and consumption for her family and guests at the estate. She often generously lends her home to organizations she believes in, including the Peconic Land Trust, Southampton History Museum and others.

Tom Edmonds, executive director at the Southampton History Museum, says “Mrs. Salm is an enthusiastic preservationist for nature and culture in Southampton. This cooking show offers a unique experience for natural food and history lovers inside one of the most majestic, historic homes that I know of.”
