I am so flattered to be this month’s Hamptons Magazine cover girl! You can check out the article here.
Fun fact about this shoot: I was about 3-months pregnant when I showed up on location, but had not told anyone yet. When the stylist showed me all the clothes he had pulled for the shoot, it was a rack full of (very skimpy) bikinis – they wanted it to be a bathing suit shoot! I debated whether I should keep my mouth shut and just do it, but I was definitely not feeling body confident (my first trimester was an epic “bloat-mester”). Lucky for me, the entire Hamptons Magazine crew were incredibly understanding when I told them the news, and the stylist had a few (very flowy and forgiving) dresses on set – phew! I am not sure other magazine publications would have been as cool about me changing the entire direction of their cover shoot at the last minute, so I am incredibly grateful (and relieved) to the Hamptons Magazine team for their flexibility and support! I hope you enjoy the article and photos by Andrew C. Stone. Here’s the beginning of the article — click through to read the rest!
ELETTRA WIEDEMANN TALKS HER EASY-TO-FOLLOW COOKBOOK, BECOMING A MOM, AND RECEIVING AN INVITATION FROM OPRAH

Worldly, wise, creative, and original, the 34-year-old Bellport resident has positioned herself as a new-guard food star, offering spot-on food-prep and wellness insight as the blogger Impatient Foodie. Wiedemann also happens to be a supermodel, having posed for top photographers and walked on high-profile runways for more than a decade. Meanwhile, she found time to pen her new cookbook, Impatient Foodie: 100 Delicious Recipes for a Hectic, Time-Starved World—a must for on-the-go cooks everywhere. While this bounty of brains and beauty might make another person insufferable, Wiedemann speaks from gratitude rather than ego as she recounts her parallel careers. “Something I’m continuously surprised by is how I can do things that initially feel impossible,” she says. “I always think I know nothing at the beginning [of a project]. But I do know. This book taught me that I am capable of a lot more than I think I am.” … Click this link to read the rest of the story!
