Speak to local residents and you will quickly discover that food—good, fresh, earthy food—has been engrained in the fabric of this region for centuries, but in recent years numerous New York City chefs have gravitated upstate, creating an explosive culinary scene that rivals any global city. These epicurean masters are attracted to the Hudson Valley for its farm-fresh ingredients and rural sensibility.
