Video: Tomato Harvest at Harvest on Hudson


It’s tomato harvest time! Tania Savayan, one of our videographers extraordinaire, visited the tomato harvest at Harvest on Hudson in Hastings-on-Hudson, where chef Vincent Barcelona and his staff put up 1,100 pounds of tomatoes to use in dishes at the restaurant throughout the year (until the next tomato harvest!). Take a look.

  1. Great video. A couple of corrections/comments:

    – not sure why the chef cooks his tomatoes prior to canning; I’m assuming he doesn’t use the sauce right out of the jar without manipulation / further cooking?

    – not sure why the chef re-tightens the lids/cans?


  2. Vince: I explained in detail when you asked that same question on our Harvest on Hudson Facebook page, I see you are familiar with Harvest seeing you website picture. Please feel free to contact me at Harvest so we can discuss in great detail what is that needs correcting and commenting on, I’m always happy to learn and listen. My direct office line is 914 478 6708 i’m looking forward to speaking with you.

    Best regards,

    Vincent Barcelona
