It was a beautiful October late afternoon/early evening. The cheese and first course were held on the lawn by the Heritage Vegetable garden where guest could take a stroll among the vegetables, bringing their food and wine with them. Both cooking demonstrations were held indoor in the Museum Pavilion (it gets dark much earlier now).
Main Course, a leader in the sustainable food movement, uses small Hudson Valley purveyors to provide the freshest local organic produce, free range poultry, line caught fish and hormone free meats.
With the bounty of the Hudson Valley as his inspiration, Chef Bruce creates unique, contemporary menus, reflecting the innovation and creativity that has become Main Course hallmark.
Main Course was the caterer for Walkway Over the Hudson, Starry Starry Night.
Hoping to post recipes for the above dishes next Friday.

Instead of a tour of the Heritage Vegetable Garden, Locust Grove’s horticulturists Tim Steinhoff and Susan MacAvery held a Talk and Show of what is currently still growing in the garden and some root vegetables that were harvested previously
