Local Links


I had a lovely lunch with friends upstate yesterday. They served a delicious pork roast they got at Fleisher’s Grass-Fed and Organic Meats in Kingston with local fingerlings with herbs and broccoli rabe with lemon zest. Delicious!


For dessert? Blackberry tart with a cornmeal topping and a scoop of butter pecan ice cream.
Also amazing.


The fall foliage was gorgeous up there.


And with that, here’s what people were talking about over the weekend.

In the next day or so, I’ll be posting a video report from Tarry Lodge, too, which opened on Wednesday.
Anything else out there I missed?
