Northforker TV is organized around the four verbs that best sum up our content: eat, drink, live and breathe. 

Each episode — we’re producing three for this first season — features segments about some of the people and places that make you want to eat, drink, live and breathe on the North Fork.

You can watch the full 19-minute episode above then rewatch your favorite segments below. For more about what’s in this second episode or to watch the first episode, see the guide below.

Eat — Baking Pie at Orient Country Store

Since 2011, Miriam Foster and her husband Grayson Murphy have owned the Orient Country Store, much to the delight of hungry regulars and those looking for a quick bite following a ferry ride from New London.

In those seven years, Foster, who previously worked as a baker and chocolate maker, has made a name for herself locally with her baking.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, she recently showed us how she makes her pumpkin pie and shared her recipe for our viewers. Follow these steps to impress the friends and family you’ll be spending the holiday with this year.

Taste Test: Apple Pie

Northforker staffers Michelina Da Fonte — our reigning taste test champ — and Cerria Torres square off in a battle to see who the true expert is on apple pie. Served slices from Briermere Farms, Hallock’s Cider Mill and Breeze Hill Farm & Preserve they had to guess which one came from each place in this recurring segment featuring locally sourced products.

Drink — Mastering Lattes at Bruce & Son

After taking a trip last year to Australia, where breakfast is king, Bruce & Son owners Scott and Kassata Bollman realized they wanted to up their latte game.

They took a course on making lattes and hired beverage manager Paul Mejia, who also serves as a barista.

We visited the Greenport brunch spot to watch Mejia in action and to showcase the restaurant’s latest offerings.

Bird’s Eye View: Mattituck Inlet

The North Fork looks so beautiful from the ground, but what does it look like from up above? In this recurring segment, our Michael Vee flies his drone over various places across the region. For November, he captured images from high above Mattituck Inlet.

Live — Handmade in Cutchogue

Customers at local shops like White Flower Farmhouse in Southold, have marveled the last couple years over the work of artist Treva Elwood of Cutchogue.

Using a sewing machine and her own two hands, Elwood crafts beautiful stuffed animals that have become a great North Fork holiday gift item for folks looking to share a locally crafted product.

See more of her work at etsy.

Breathe — A North Fork Fall Scene

It’s hard to go out anywhere on the North Fork these days without admiring the work of chalk artist Kara Hoblin.

The founder of the North Fork Art Collective has designed signs and menu boards for many restaurants and wineries that are certain to capture your attention when you’re in their presence.

We asked her to create for us a North Fork fall scene and we’re raffling it off to one lucky viewer, with the proceeds going to Cornell Cooperative Extension’s SPAT program.
