Dear Hudson Valley friends,
I'm pleased to say that my new book, Food Lovers' Guide to the Hudson Valley, is now available! The publisher is Globe Pequot Press; the price is $16.95. Writing this book was a lot of fun. I got to discuss not only the best restaurants across six counties, I also got to write about all the many specialty shops, farmers' markets, and other great foodie places in our region. Plus, I got to write under my own name, a rarity for me.

I became aware of the word “locavore” within the last two years, mostly because I was accused of being one. It is not surprising that I hadn’t heard the term, considering that the word was coined only seven years ago. According to the website locavores.com, “A locavore is a person interested in eating food that is locally produced, not moved long distances to market. The locavore movement in the…Continue

When I tell people about my culinary adventures in canning they seem to wonder why I go to the effort. Now I realize that the readers of the HVFN site are interested in their food sources and enjoy good comestibles, so I might be "preaching to the choir" - here are my thoughts.
To eat locally all year round

To be frugal
To preserve meat from my husband's hunting adventures ( no…Continue

I'm getting started on a project on our region's agriculture and how effectively it connects to the people who consume it.
I was hoping to start some discussions here to find contacts and identify needs.

I had sat staring at the picture of this recipe since last week. Last week things just got a little too hectic to post and then there was yesterday, which ideally might have been just the day to do this. The kids dance class got cancelled leaving me with a nice pocket of time. But, somehow I started and edged and…Continue

I belong to the Rhinebeck Community Gardens and rightfully so every member must put in so many hours a month to maintain the Garden area. Yesterday was my work day and I shoveled mulch in to wheelbarrows for about 2 hours. Needless to say I really hurt my back and spent most of the night laying on a heating pad wishing there was such a thing as a spine transplant.
But because deep down inside I am a masocist I cannot stop thinking about food and gardening; even while in…Continue
