The Ultimate Westchester Food Lover’s Guide
Bread, meat, cheese, pasta, and more for the County foodie.
In the 1960s and ‘70s, music was the cool scene. Then the ‘80s happened and the Cool Kids were scrambling to find their next milieu. But starting somewhere in the ‘90s, and rising slowly yet steadily like a soufflé, food and drinks as a hobby, i.e., the pursuit of new food experiences, became where it’s at. Now foodie interests are represented in myriad forms, from the Food Network with its Top Chefs and Iron Chefs; on sites like Epicurious, Eater, and Chowhound, to farmers’ markets in every other town’s municipal parking lot.
This magazine covers dining frequently, so we figured it was time for a guide assisting food hobbyists whose interests include more than just the next hot chef’s table; instead, how to eat well at home and what to stock in your cupboards, refrigerator, freezer, bread box, and sweets shelf.
