Foodies On Parade: Taste of Hudson Valley Bounty Dinner

brian Scott Baldinger reports from Chatham. “Bring a bib,” Berkshire Farm and Table’s marketing director Angela Cardinali (pictured here with Nudel’s Bjorn Somlo of Lenox), advised this reporter before attending The Taste of Hudson Valley Bounty Dinner at the Columbia County Fairgrounds on Monday, August 5. Neglecting to do so, he ended up with a delicious variety of smatterings on his shirt from more than 20 restaurants and 30 farms, this year including those not only from the Hudson Valley but also from the Berkshires, right over the county line from Chatham. (Which makes sense: “farm-to-table” restaurants in the Berkshires get 50% of their local ingredients from New York State, and no doubt there’s a lot of vice versa going on there as well.) Some of the delectable souvenirs brought home on said shirt: John Andrews’ milk braised Willow Brook Farm pork shoulder and succotash; Helsinki Hudson‘s cornbread with Fix Brothers Fruit Farm white peaches; and Carlucci Simons Catering‘s swiss chard pancakes with basil coulis.
