Fresh Gnocchi Amatriciana with Gianni Scappin, Cucina Woodstock

It’s amazing to see how far the Hudson Valley dining scene has so rapidly evolved in just the past decade alone.  For us, Cucina’s opening was a gamechanger–raising the bar with its elegant yet simple Italian fare exquisitely and consistently prepared with quality ingredients.  No surprise that the chef in command there (and at sister restaurant Market Street, Rhinebeck) also happens to mentor aspiring chefs as a professor at [...]

Napoleons & Elephant Ears with Tess Kelly, Séraphine Bakery

The base for both Napoleons and Palmiers (aka Elephant Ears) is the oft-purchased / rarely home-made puff pastry dough.  Oft-purchased because time and technique preclude many a home cook from ever attempting on their own.  Puff pastry is made from a laminated dough whereby butter is put inside the dough, making a paton which is repeatedly folded and rolled out before baking.  The gaps that form between the layers [...]
