'The Hamptons: Food, Family and History' by Ricky Lauren

So reveals Ricky, his wife of 46 years, who, in her new hybrid cookbook-meets-history-meets-family album, "The Hamptons: Food, Family and History" ($40, Wiley), serves up, among other things, a delicious slice of the Lauren family lifestyle in the Hamptons, where they have summered for decades.
