Cookbook author, Courtney Wade, lives on a farm in the Hudson Valley. Her new book, THE CATSKILLS FARM TO TABLE COOKBOOK, was recently published by 
Hatherleigh Press, Ltd. 


The book features the best produce and meats from local farms in the Catskills of New York. Using her knowledge of the region, her skills as a chef, and her experience as a photographer, Wade created this fabulous collection of delicious recipes with wonderful photographs of local farms and foods.


Thanks to the author and book publisher for allowing Hudson Valley Parent to share 5 great recipes with our Hudson Valley Parent followers. 

Use two or three of the recipes for a delicious meal: cucumber salad, new potatoes and pasta with blistered tomatoes.

Or have your children join you making home-baked blueberry muffins.

HVParent included each recipe in a convenient recipe card which you can print or download and save.

We have added the following 5 recipes cards:
  1. Cucumber salad. Great to serve alongside grilled chicken or pork.

  2. New potatoes with butter and herbs. The potatoes season is late June into July.

  3. Zucchini Swiss chard soup. This soup is enjoyed because of its lightness.

  4. Pasta with blistered tomatoes. Use the tomatoes by themselves or add as topping for a fish dish.

  5. Blueberry muffins. Great summer recipe to use with fresh berries or later with the frozen variety

All recipes are excerpted from The Catskills Farm to Table Cookbook by Courtney Wade. Published by Hatherleigh Press.
