New York’s Third Annual Cider Week is being held October 18-27 and we are ready to celebrate! Hard cider was an American tradition until the early 20th century, when it was lost to Prohibition and urbanization. Glynwood’s Apple Project has been working to increase the profitability of the region’s apple orchards by galvanizing a regional hard cider industry.
Slow Food Metro North has chosen to honor Tarry Lodge, Westport, owned by the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group, an industry leader in sustainability, for their support of the local foodshed. Tarry Lodge sources local ingredients to be spotlighted on their seasonal menus and is committed to sustainability initiatives ranging from a no bottled water policy to a food composting program.
In celebration of National Pollinator Week, Slow Food Metro North, Audubon Greenwich, and the Fairfield Green Food Guide are pleased to present Taste the Terroir of American Honey. Honey bees play a vital role in our food chain, pollinating one-third of the food we eat and producing a wide range of artisanal honeys. Red Bee Honey founder, beekeeper and author Marina Marchese will take guests on a tasting journey to discover the unique sensory qualities (terroir!) of 7 single varietal U.S. honeys featured in her latest book, The Honey Connoissuer, and how to best pair them with food.
