The North Fork Table & Inn is hitting the books this summer. The iconic Southold restaurant has teamed up with NY Times best-selling author Judy Blundell for the launch of her new novel, The High Season (Random House, May 22), which is set on Long Island’s North Fork. The collaboration will include culinary events with the author and a special High Season Getaway for two at The North Fork Table & Inn.
The package, which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, includes:
- 2 nights accommodations
- 2 dinners (a chef’s tasting and a 3-course)
- Lunch at the North Fork Food Truck
- A complimentary cocktail
- A copy of The High Season
- Wine tasting
- Full breakfast
(Cost: $1000 per couple)
On July 1, there will be a Brunch and Book event where Blundell will sign books, do a reading, and answer questions as guests enjoy the best brunch on the North Fork. (11:30 am, $75 per person). And on July 5, families are invited to dine alfresco at the North Fork Food Truck, with delicious fare such as lobster rolls, burgers, banh mi and Claudia Fleming’s famous cookies. Blundell will mingle with guests and do book signings. (5:00 p.m., $30 per person).
The partnership is a logical one for Blundell. Not only is The High Season set on the North Fork, but she has been visiting the area since she was a child. “I am so delighted to be partnering with The North Fork Table & Inn,” Blundell says. ” Their history of commitment to local farms and purveyors has been a guiding light on the North Fork. Sit me down in their dining room with a glass of wine and their risotto fritters and you will not find a happier human on the planet.”

About The High Season:
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and Ruth Beamish, her not-quite-ex-husband and their teenage daughter are packing up their belongings in their home overlooking the sea. In order to keep the house, add to the college fund, and save for retirement, they’ve put off a divorce and rent out the house. When an elegant new renter arrives, Ruth’s life is turned upside down, and the whole town finds itself on the brink of tumultuous change in the midst of one unhinged, unforgettable summer.
