Hudson Valley Restaurant Week 2011: Meet Guest Blogger Kathleen McLaughlin


Hello fellow foodies! My name is Kathleen McLaughlin and I’m very excited to guest blog for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Originally from Putnam Valley, I now live in Stamford, Conn. and commute into lower Manhattan where I work for a financial software company.

I live for all things food and wine and love trying new restaurants. Food Network is my television mainstay (love you Ina!) and Wine Spectator is my go-to read every month.  In addition to eating out I love to cook at home with my fiancé who admittedly is the better chef (but I’ll never tell him that). I consider making pizza to be a form of art and love experimenting with new toppings. Try tortilla chips as a topping…trust me, it works!

I’m excited to recap my HVRW experience with you and hopefully find some new neighborhood favorites!
