Our region boasts some of the finest chefs in the country. And we want to get to know as many of them as possible here on Food Friday. Today we are on with Chef Dan Smith of John Andrews Farmhouse Restaurant in South Egremont, Massachusetts.
We still have a bit of summer left, but there’s no denying the fall harvest is right around the corner. Our region’s bounty is rich, and we have some guests in the studio today who can talk about the best ways to take advantage of it. Michele Youngs, Bill Bensen and Barbara Chepaitis of the Honest Weight Food Co-Op in Albany are here to answer your questions, and we’ll have some treats in store.
I scream. You scream. We all scream for….you guessed it, ice cream! This sweet treat is a hallmark of summer, and universally enjoyed the world over in many different flavors, colors and forms. From soft-serve to gelato, black cherry to death by chocolate, we’ll have you screaming for ice cream by the end of this show. Paul Nasrani of the Adirondack Creamery joins us in the studio today.
Today we’re going to explore the world of hard ciders with three regional distillers. From the tart and tangy, to the sweet and crisp, this refreshing effervescent beverage is the perfect way to whet your whistle on a hot summer’s day. Jason Grizzanti is co-owner and Master Distiller of Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery located in Warwick, NY. Casey Vitti is co-founder and cellar master at Awestruck Ciders in Walton, NY.
