The greatest restaurants, the freshest farmers markets, amazing wineries, and the finest culinary school in the world await you in the Hudson Valley. If you are looking for a culinary adventure, the Hudson Valley is the place for you.
Anchored by the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), the world's premiere culinary school, the Hudson Valley is a mecca for great chefs who benefit from the abundant farm fresh bounty of the area and the high level of culinary talent the school offers. Fine dining in a grand space, there are 4 restaurants to choose from. Grab a savory lunch at the Apple Pie Bakery Cafe, and enjoy either French nouvelle at Bocuse, farm to table dining at American Bounty, or Tuscan cuisine at Caterina De 'Medici.
The CIA also offers culinary classes. Whether it is weekend classes or a week long book camp, you can hone your culinary skills with folks like you who are passionate about cooking.
The Hudson Valley culinary experience continues with our abundance of family-owned farms that welcome you to pick-your-own produce, make purchases from their farm stands, or join them during family-oriented festivals. The Hudson Valley vineyards offer you to taste their vintages from local grapes, and perhaps stay for a picnic or concert.
Hudson Valley's homegrown farm fresh artisanal products are available at the many farmers markets in the area. Several towns host these weekly, and sometimes year round. Or, try our many specialty food shops, where you can pack your picnic basket for your day in the country.
And it all comes down to the restaurants. Check out our recommendations: http://www.journeyinn.com/great-food.php
