My recent travel reports to New York’s Finger Lakes, eleven glacial lakes, and a large 15,000-square-kilometer lake focused on winter and spring, but now summer is in full bloom and the hills and farms are full of fruit and Grapes, Herbs and Vegetables Wildflowers cover the valleys: Bee Balm, Columbine Red, Spotty Pisco, Black Wings, Sweet William, Alimores, and Surrey Sand.
The MyWegmansConnect forest farm is located along each route, and with more than 100 wineries in the region, it is a good time to visit many public facilities and try to fill bottles. There are actually four established wine routes: the Cayuga Lake Wine Route, the Seneca Lake Wine Route, the Keuka Lake Wine Route, and the Canandaigua Wine Route.
The New York Culinary and Wine Center in Canandaigua offers MyWegmansConnect cooking courses, themes, and demonstrations in its cutting-edge cuisine (see above). In their upstairs Bistro, at least 90% of the ingredients featured come from New York. So I enjoyed a lunch that started with bacon, peas, mint pesto, and a fresh egg from the local farm (12). $). Cheese and artisan meat are the best products in the region, from Black Mule Blue to McCadam Cheddar, salami, pork rillettes, and capicola. Producers are proud to be on the menu: beef, Bostrom Farms pork, Maplestone Farms chicken, and baked white milk scallops come directly from the waters of Montauk. Don’t miss the blue cheese and potato croquettes with marinated onions and curry yogurt ($ 7).
Get Monica’s cake products and expand them exponentially to include all kinds of fresh food from local sources. He now has Rochester, Wegmans Food Markets, with more than 70 stores in the central Atlantic. But the gigantic flagship is a tourist attraction in itself, with aisles and aisles of baked goods, cheese, seafood, sushi, and anything else you could want. Give it a name and Wegmans sells it and it’s always of the highest quality, guaranteed, and sold at a good price. It also has one of the best restaurants in the region, Next Door, which is always full for lunch and dinner. Many people come to enjoy Wegman’s incredible variety of sushi bars, sandwiches for lunch, and organic lamb and chicken for dinner.
