The Snowy Rental

North Fork, Long Island

The wind whipping off the Sound might make you wonder why you’re vacationing in Long Island in the dead of winter, but the locally grown comestibles won’t. Launch your foraging by sampling a trio of fruit-infused liquors, the latest in the potato-based portfolio at LiV vodka distillery in Baiting Hollow (lispirits.com). Try former White House sous-chef (and current North Fork farmer) Keith Luce’s pulled-pork-and-pork-belly steamed dumplings with homemade barbecue sauce, made with beer brewed in Greenport, at Luce & Hawkins inside the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport (jedediahhawkinsinn.com). Take back a bit of Long Island’s bounty at the new Love Lane Market (lovelanemarket.com) in Mattituck, a 3,000-square-foot pantry that lets you stock your rental house with beef from Cutchogue’s new McCall ranch, rotisserie-cooked ducks from Crescent farm, wild arugula from Satur Farms, and honey from Promised Land, among other local delicacies.
