The Hamptons are rich in culinary talent. And Anna Pump is at the top of that list. Her influence on local cooking and eating reaches back to her arrival here in the late 1970s. Born in the town of Tarp, Germany, Anna and her late husband, Detlef, came to the United States with their two children in the 1960s. The family first settled in New Jersey where Detlef had a brother. Offered a house in Southampton for two weeks one summer, the two fell instantly in love with the area, which reminded them of Tarp. Even the potato fields felt familiar. Tucked up next to the Danish border, the town has the Baltic on one side, the North Sea on the other. The couples’ two children, son Harm and daughter Sybille were off to college so their parents went home to New Jersey and came right back out looking for a house. The one they found and lovingly saved from ruin is the same house Anna lives in to this day.
