Many thanks and gratitude to all who participated and attended the ‘Taste of’ Hudson Valley Bounty Dinner, what a wonderful evening of collaboration and talent! The evening was a locavore’s dream as more than 300 people feasted on numerous delectable dishes such as, Vegetable and Goat Cheese Lasagna, braised Lamb and Ratatouille, Zucchini bread and crispy Smoked Ham, local artisan cheeses, wines, beers, handmade chocolates, ice cream and pies. With over 55 of our farms donating their fresh products to our collection of talented chef’s there was at least one treat for any taste bud. Each tasting proved what amazing and delicious things can happen when terrific chefs are paired with our members’ delicious local ingredients and products.
