    Kathleen King, who has forged a baking empire with her goods now sold under the Tate’s Bake Shop name, garnering accolades from foodies such as Ina Garten and Rachael Ray, will sign copies of her new cookbook, “Baking for Friends,” at the mint-green painted shop on North Sea Road in Southampton on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m.
    “Baking for Friends” includes gluten-free, low-fat, vegan, and nut-free recipes among the categories of muffins, pies, tea loaves, cookies, and party cakes, to name just a few, along with tips on stress-free baking. It is Ms. King’s second cookbook, after a 2006 release, “The Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook.”
    Those who attend Saturday’s event will be able to purchase an advance copy of the book and to taste some of Tate’s sweets, as well as to enter a drawing for a chance to win a KitchenAid stand mixer.

Zucchini Pepper Soup
    Anna Pump’s recipe for zucchini pepper soup, which was included in the “Hamptons Long Island Homegrown Cookbook,” will be prepared during a free cooking demonstration at the Loaves and Fishes Cookshop in Bridgehampton on Saturday. It will take place from noon to 2 p.m.

More Summertime Soup
    Produce from the Peconic Land Trust’s Quail Hill Farm will be used to make the soup that will be sold at the trust’s next “Souper Tuesday” at the Amagansett Farmers Market. Each cup of soup costs $6, which will benefit the land trust’s conservation efforts.
    The event, from 5 to 7 p.m., will include live music, tastings of local wines, and a chance to chat with farmers and Peconic Land Trust staff. It will not take place if it rains.
