Sample "Agriturismo" Dinner Menu
(Posted on Fridays)
While we can't put you up, we will strive to provide you with simple yet sublime rustic fare based upon local ingredients harvested at their prime.
Gigi Hudson Valley brings this charming, rural Italian tradition to the Hudson Valley with the introduction of its own “Agriturismo Dinners.” This allows farmers to reacquaint visitors with traditional Italian country living, including food grown and prepared right on the premises. Laura Pensiero, owner of Gigi Hudson Valley, wants to provide a similar enjoyable eating experience. “Our food typically uses lots of locally grown products, and we also wanted to challenge ourselves and make good use of our rustic-elegant space at Greig Farm. So, we decided to source ingredients grown right in our back yard; in Upper Red Hook, and nearby Columbia County. We find the best ingredients within five miles of our café, Gigi Market, on Greig Farm”.
Pensiero and her talented team, including Chef Wilson Costa, sources ingredients from nearby Migliorelli Farms, Mead Orchards, Northwind Farms, Montgomery Place Orchards, Hearty Roots Farm, Paisley Farm and of course, right outside its back door on Grieg Farm. Keeping the "agriturismo spirit" alive, all meals will be family style and rustic. There will be homemade crusty breads to enjoy, an antipasti course with farm fresh vegetables, and the option for local cured meats and cheeses. This will be followed by a main course of either a delicious pasta/risotto or local beef, pork or chicken along with salads and side dishes. For dessert, you can bite into ripe local fruit or rustic tarts, pies, cobblers, even homemade gelato.
Come and enjoy the bounty of the Valley.
