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

Cornell High Tunnels Website Redesigned

The Cornell High Tunnel website has been redesigned to help farmers profit from the use of high tunnels to extend their growing season and produce higher quality vegetables, fruit and flowers. The site contains information on the different types of structures and the resources for high tunnel profitability. Events, Tweets by Judson Reid, and the latest blog articles are accessible as well.

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. Watch the video now!
