Fresh Corn From Pike Farms Stand

Ina stocks up on corn from this stand, then sautes the kernels with butter, salt and pepper. "It's the best corn anywhere," she says. Others agree: When developers threatened to take over Pike's land, locals banded together to save it. 82 Sagg Main St., Sagaponack, NY; pikefarms.com

Roasted Chicken From 1770 House

Ina's go-to dish — roasted organic chicken served in a natural jus — is just the thing to order at this centuries-old inn. "When you've had a hard day, there's nothing like going to the pub with a good friend and settling into a corner table," Ina says. "All is well with the world." 143 Main St., East Hampton, NY; 1770house.com

Grilled Fish From Duryea's Lobster Deck

This outdoor spot is a local favorite. "Everything is absolutely delicious," Ina says. "Their grilled fish has incredibly flavorful seasoning. You go out by the water and feel like you're in Greece. Jeffrey has to come here at least once a week." 65 Tuthill Rd.; Montauk, NY; duryealobsters.com

Shrimp and Swordfish Curry From Loaves & Fishes Gourmet Take-out

Whenever this dish is available, Ina makes it her Sunday dinner. She's supporting a friend: Owner Anna Pump once worked at Barefoot Contessa. "Loaves & Fishes is one of the best specialty food stores in the country," Ina says. 50 Sagg Main St.; Sagaponack, NY; landfcookshop.com

Neal's Yard Dairy Cheddars and Stilton From Cavaniola's Gourmet Cheese Shop

"The owners make you try everything" at this shop, Ina says. "The cheeses are always perfect." They make panini, too; try the one with Brie, Parma ham, apples and honey mustard. 89-B Division St.; Route 114, Sag Harbor, NY; 631-725-0095
