It’s a berry! It’s a pear! It’s superfood! We are talking about the Persea americana, member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae: the avocado. Its name comes from the Aztec word “ahuacatl,” which means testicle. Oh, dear.
The featured speaker at Wednesday’s A Night Out With event — a collaboration between the Golden Eagle Studio and Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton — will be Jane Martin, a multimedia artist. Wainscott Main Wine and Spirits will hold a workshop focusing on rosés on Wednesday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The class will introduce students to rosés produced outside of the Provence region of France, the area most associated with the wine. Advance registration is by calling the store.
