Welcome to Edible Hudson Valley, the quarterly magazine that celebrates the local, seasonal foods of the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
Here, in an area blessed with natural splendor and gloriously abundant food, seasons flow like honey, one into the next, each with its own distinct culinary personality and traditions. Whether it is the crisp snap of a just-picked apple, the warm camaraderie of a mountainside brewpub, or the luscious swirl of artisanal yogurt, the region is a mouth-watering, year-round feast of color, texture, taste and aroma.
And Edible Hudson Valley tells the story behind every delicious bite. We focus on the artisans, farmers, bakers, home cooks, fishers, chefs, vintners and others who energize our culinary community. More investigative journalism than food chat, more historical profile than restaurant gossip, we give voice to our region’s food inspirations and trends. And, in an area once known as the nation’s “Bread Basket” but now in transition, we’ll take a close look at the region’s culinary controversies and challenges, too.
Savoring the ten counties that stretch from the Catskills south along the river’s banks to the cliffs of The Palisades, Edible Hudson Valley is the definitive guide to discovering and enjoying food.
And as part of Edible Communities’ award-winning network of regional food publications, we serve up our local view with national perspective – an important combination for understanding today’s culinary choices.
Why? Because our readers are passionate about food. Full-time residents, weekend visitors or second home owners alike, they know that a community is enriched and sustained by the food it shares. Just as happy cooking a Sunday stew as discovering a new restaurant, they seek authentic, trusted culinary resources and experiences—and they find them in Edible Hudson Valley.
We invite you to join us as we share our culinary bounty, and help our region to remain one of the most blessed, beautiful communities in the world for generations to come.
