"More than just a collection of recipes, "Finger Lakes Feast" is also a piece of reporting -- the story of a real food revolution now coming to fruition.... the quality of its fresh local food, its regional wine, and its contributions to American gastronomy ranging from Greek yogurt to great fruits and vegetables, from Wegmans groceries to Riesling to artisan oils.... "The Finger Lakes spirit is to make good eating casual, simple, unintimidating and relatively inexpensive".... "It's an enormously fun place to explore the craft of food." --Skaneateles Press
"Long renowned for its scenic beauty, New York's Finger Lakes region has recently become known as a food destination as well. Thanks to the farms and wineries in the area, an ever-growing number of high-quality restaurants are offering many styles of food.... Finger Lakes Feast offers highlights of the area's cuisine in five categories--breakfasts, soups & appetizers, main dishes, salads & side dishes, and sweets--and includes tips on how to find the best comestibles, from apples to yogurt, as well as the contributing restaurants." --Cornell Alumni Magazine
"The Finger Lakes region deserves to join the Hudson Valley, Long Island and Brooklyn on the list of New York locales known for their cuisine. Kate Harvey and Karl Zinsmeister make that case in the beautifully photographed Finger Lakes Feast, highlighting the area's flours and grains, seed oils, cheeses, meats, game, honey and maple syrup, and, of course, its rieslings in recipes from local restaurants.... There are also traditional Syracuse salt potatoes; marinated skewers called spiedies; and a first-rate pear bread that's more poundcake than bread." --New York Times 1/23/13

"Finger Lakes Feast" is aptly titled; it's a true feast for the eyes, as well as the palate. I'm so glad I purchased a copy, and I highly recommend it! It would make an outstanding gift for that special cook (or would-be cook) in your life.
"Finger Lakes Feast unlocks the delicious mystery and quirky history behind our local foods and flavors. Now everyone will learn what we locals know: our wines and foods are the perfect expression of the beautiful region they come from. They are simple, hardy, and full of life and flavor."
author of The Mighty Queens of Freeville, NPR contributor, and "Ask Amy" columnist
"Finger Lakes Feast captures the rich flavors of the region beautifully--it's the next best thing to experiencing a Finger Lakes feast for yourself."
--David J. Skorton
President, Cornell University
"Each recipe has the pedigree required for locavore status, and each dish just begs to be paired with a good local wine."
restaurateur, author, and pioneer localist
"A delightfully evocative and appetite-whetting exploration of place and pasta, of wine and remembrance, of blueberries and belonging, which adds up to not a cook's tour but an informative and unpretentious master chef's tour of one of the most culturally and culinarily rich regions of America."
author of Dispatches from the Muckdog Gazette
We have tried several recipes in "Finger Lakes Feast" and have enjoyed them all. It's an interesting mix of local upstate NY tradition, ethnic dishes, and new flavorful recipes.
