Description: Hailed as the Napa Valley of the East, New York's Hudson Valley has become a major hub for local foods and agriculture -- and Laura Pensiero's acclaimed restaurants are at the center of it all. Customers from near and far flock to Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck (named one of Hudson Valley's best restaurants in Hudson Valley Magazine) and Gigi Market and Catering in Red Hook to dine on Laura's interpretations of traditional Italian dishes that highlight the bounty of the farms, gardens, and artisans of the Valley. 

A celebration of the food of the Hudson Valley and the people who grow and produce it, Hudson Valley Mediterranean shows how to use seasonal ingredients to create delectable, nourishing meals. Here are more than 100 easy-to-prepare and cost-effective recipes made with the best ingredients and a touch of Mediterranean flair, including: 

  • Gigi Potato Gnocchi with Northwind Farm Chicken and Pea Ragu 
  • Based Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower and Chard 
  • -Fava Bean and Fregola Salad 
  • Spring (and every other season) Lasagna 
  • Seared Salmon over Spring Trifolati 
  • Mr. Mink's Panzanella Salad with Fresh Herbs Strawberry Mascarpone Tart 

This local and seasonal food movement is happening throughout the country, and Pensiero invites everyone to bring these foods into their own kitchens and communities using regional resources -- because cooking with fresh food harvested nearby brings pleasure to eating and connects people to their family, friends, and community.
