Catskill Cuisine is a new culinary festival taking place across the very lovely grounds of Bethel Woods, infamous site of Woodstock in 1969. Drawing on the rich local fare and farms, including fresh produce and craft beverages, it will be a showcase for the epicurean bounty of the beauteous region, which has become a magnet for NYC’ers looking to escape the city. Big name chefs will be making special guest appearances, including Geoffrey Zakarian, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson, and Food Network star Alton Brown.
“Catskills Cuisine” takes inspiration from local fare, farmers, and restaurants, featuring celebrity, notable and local chefs participating in tastings, demonstrations and hands-on experiences to immerse visitors in the county. It will be a time to bring visitors, music, and cuisine together, while allowing local culinary experts to shine and be inspired by other accomplished American chefs. – Bethelwoods Center for the Arts.
