A renowned chef and nutritionist has the recipe for delectable meals with a healthy Mediterranean focus, featuring more than 100 recipes for flavorful, seasonal local food

Hailed as the Napa Valley of the East, New York's Hudson Valley has become a major hub for local foods and agriculture¬óand 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
Baked 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¬óbecause cooking with fresh food harvested nearby brings pleasure to eating and connects people to their family, friends, and community.

  • Wonderful Cookbook!

    This is a wonderful cookbook! Great recipes, beautiful illusrations, and some wonderful essays related to the cuisine of the Mediterrean and the tie-in with the Hudson Valley (similar weather, terrain). The recipes that Laura Pensiero presents here are delicious AND healthy (she's a registered dietitian, along with being a chef)! Great stuff!
