Culinary Connections: Farm to Restaurant Workshop and Networking OpportunityFebruary 18, 2013
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.

Late Blight Confirmed in Many NY CountiesLate blight (LB) in potatoes and tomatoes has now been confirmed in the following counties: Allegany, Erie, Genesee, Madison, Livingston, Ontario, Schuyler, Tompkins, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates Counties. Several of these are new counties confirmed last week. New samples with LB are coming in all the time. It is likely now present in all counties in Western NY, the Finger Lakes Region, and Central NY.
The continued wet weather has been very favorable for development. The majority of LB samples from the area that were tested have been the US23 strain, sensitive to mefenoxam fungicides (Ridomil, other materials). The only exceptions remain in Allegany County, where the mefenoxam sensitivity of the LB is unknown, and one sample each of US24, with variable mefenoxam sensitivity, in Erie and Wyoming Counties.
If you think you might have LB contact Carol MacNeil, John Gibbons, or another Cornell Vegetable Program staff member. LB DSS users: If you need assistance contact Ian Small or Carol MacNeil.
