My gourmet products are now available at Gill's Farm Market

My gourmet products are on the shelf as Gill's Farm Market opens for the season!

Gill's is a local farm market located on Route 209 South in Hurley, New York that sells fresh produce grown on their farm- some items picked early in the morning the same day it hits the shelf for sale- now that's fresh!

You've got to try their asparagus. It's larger than what I've seen in the supermarket and very tasty. I prepared it on the grill using a vegetable grilling basket and was pleasantly surprised at how it retained its flavor and crunch. In addition to asparagus, the spinach is also in now. You can also purchase beautiful potted flowering plants at the on-site greenhouse for Mom this Mother's Day or that special graduate.

Stop by and visit Loretta, Cindy and the rest of the friendly staff at Gill's Farm Market whenever you're headed south on Route 209 through Hurley, New York.

Eat healthy, eat farm fresh,

My gourmet products have sold out at 2 local stores!

Wow! My gourmet products have sold out at Woodstock Meats and my Caribbean Hot Sauce has sold out at the Emerson Country Store. Very exciting news!

I was back in the kitchen at the Reservoir Inn Restaurant in West Hurley, NY bright and early in the morning (2 AM) on Tueday and I made more inventory. I plan to deliver more gourmet products to Kevin at Woodstock Meats by the end of this week (4/23). I expect to make a delivery to the Emerson Country Store next week but I'll keep you posted on that.

Thanks for all your support,


My gourmet products are now available at J & J Gourmet Café & Catering

You can now purchase my gourmet products at J & J Gourmet Café and Catering located on Market Street in Red Hook, New York.

Owners Jen & Joe had a dream over 17 years ago to bring a Café to the community that offered unmatched catering services, a place where visitors could sit and stay awhile. They've achieved that dream in J & J Gourmet Café and Catering which offers a variety of gourmet sandwiches made fresh to order. Hot and cold beverages and baked goods are also available. Special menu items prepared in my gourmet products will also soon be available as well so be sure to ask about these specials when ordering. A variety of items including vegetarian options are available for your catered event. Call Jen or Joe for more information about catering services at 845 758 9030 or visit them online at Taste the difference.

I met Chef Jen back on 2003 at the Hudson Valley Foodworks, a gourmet food commercial kitchen facility in Poughkeepsie, NY. It's exciting to be able to collaborate with her now.

Shop local, eat local, do business locally!

3 new stores added this week!

Great news - I've added 3 stores to the list of outlets where my gourmet products can be purchased.

My gourmet sauces and condiments are now also being sold at Woodstock Meats, Fleisher's and The Emerson Country Store.

Woodstock Meats at 57 Mill Hill Road is conveniently located on the main road through Woodstock. You'll find Kevin the owner behind the counter most days. He's friendly and helpful if you need assistance selecting the right cut of organic meat. Sandwiches at the deli counter are made-to-order and you can also purchase groceries. Visit Kevin and all the folks at Woodstock Meats whenever you're in the area. They work hard to meet your needs and I know you'll enjoy your visit.

Fleisher's Meats located at 307 Wall Street in Kingston is a meat market specializing in grass-fed & organic meats. When they started Fleisher's Meats in 2004, owners- Joshua and Jessica Applestone envisioned an old fashioned butcher shop providing meat sourced locally that was free of hormones and antibiotics and full of real farm flavor. Today, Fleisher's Meats is a nationally acclaimed butcher shop with offerings that make them pretty unique (hey even have a Butchery Apprentice Program). In addition to meat, you can purchase a variety of stocks and soups as well as eggs, milk and other farm fresh items. Fleisher's Meats provides home delivery meat service to New York City and they are committed to consumer education. It's a beautiful store and whether you're a hearty meat eater, new to meat or just returning to meat, Joshua, Jessica, Erica and all the folks at Fleisher's will help you pick what's right for you.

The Emerson Country Store is located at 5340 Route 28 in the Emerson Resort & Spa complex. It's beautiful inside and out- tall mountains and winding streams combine to provide breathtaking views outside. An elegant inviting space full of interesting books, delicious sweet treats, appealing & unique gourmet foods and wonderfully warm and friendly people await you inside. Stop by and check it out but plan for an extended visit :) Give into your temptation to enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat while watching Bobby Flay on the big screen TV as he prepares one of his scrumptious creations. It'll be hard to decide whether to eat inside or enjoy the wondrous views outside at their outdoor seating area though. Either way, I know you'll enjoy your visit to the Emerson Country Store. There is an amazing kaleidoscope on the grounds which will certainly grab the kids attention. Naomi, CEO of the Emerson Resort and Spa has got a great team at the Emerson Country Store who will surely make your visit memorable.
