Culinary Connections: Farm to Restaurant Workshop and Networking Opportunity

February 18, 2013

Culinary Connections: Farm to Restaurant Workshop and Networking Opportunity

Local food sourcing, freshness, and seasonal eating continue to be driving trends among restaurant and dining entities in the region. Farms in the Finger Lakes are better positioned to serve restaurant accounts with local vegetables, fruits, and specialty foods. Chefs have the opportunity to work with farmers to coordinate volumes, products, quality expectations and consistency. Farmers are still striving to connect with local chefs and help create high-quality working relationships.

This workshop and networking session is a chance for culinary professionals to connect with some of our regional farmers to get fresh, local grown produce on their menus. Panels of farmers and chefs will explain how they are making beneficial culinary connections through communication and insights.

Workshop fee: $10.00 per person, includes handouts, networking and refreshments.

Hosted by the Cornell Vegetable Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension, in cooperation with Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty.

Announcements

Cucurbit Downy Mildew Confirmed in WNY

Cucurbit downy mildew has been confirmed in Cattaraugus County and southern Ontario County (near Naples). There have also been reports from MI, OH, PA and Ontario Canada. If you're planning on spraying cucumbers to control downy mildew, now is the time to do it!

Characteristic disease symptoms are angular, pale green areas bounded by the leaf veins. They will turn yellow and later necrotic. Under high humidity conditions sporulation will occur on the lower leaf surface. Apply targeted fungicides tank-mixed with protectant fungicides weekly and alternated among available modes of action (FRAC code), starting when there is risk for a specific crop based on forecasting program. Refer to the Cornell Vegetable Guidelines for a complete list of products available. For more information, contact Robert Hadad or Darcy Telenko.

Assisting Western New York Vegetable Growers

Western New York is a national leader in vegetable production and the largest vegetable producing region in the state of New York, contributing an estimated $280 million to the state's economy each year. The region grows a diverse set of crops including tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, pumpkins, cabbage and peppers on large acres, and another 50 crops on smaller plantings.

The Cornell Vegetable Program's video, "Meet the Cornell Vegetable Program" provides an introduction to our team of specialists and how we assist vegetable growers throughout the region. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba.
