Food Talk: Away from the Big Apple; From Farm to Table

When my friend Alan Adelson invited me to his house in the Catskills for dinner to talk about his new documentary film project, we didn't hesitate.

Thursday night after work on MTA train to Poughkeepsie takes me and my partner to the heart of the Hudson Valley, where we picked up a rental car. 
For the next three days, we had enjoyed very much being vegan with the abundance of fresh farm grown vegetables to varieties of melons in the rolling hills by the Hudson Valley. 

We stayed at an organic vegan B&B  in the western Catskills.  Early morning breakfast consists of tofu "scrambled eggs" with corn and freshly picked berries and a glass of kale smoothie, with granola and blueberries.  One morning our aromatic tea concoction was a blend of purple sage, mint and calendula

  Fresh picked August plums and peaches
