Every year, children flock to the Sylvia Center at Katchkie Farm in upstate New York to learn firsthand about where fresh food comes from—how to grow it, how to harvest it, and how to use it to prepare great-tasting meals. Now Sylvia’s Table brings these lessons and recipes straight from the farm to your kitchen in a deliciously unique cookbook for families. From Homemade Apple Roll-Ups to Butternut Squash Bread Pudding and from Spinach and Strawberry Salad to Grilled Tamarind Turkey Burgers and Baked Sweet Potato Fries, here are almost two hundred recipes that you and your family will enjoy.
Featuring recipes from “the friends of Katchkie Farm”—chefs like Michael Romano of Union Square Cafe and Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto; culinary experts including Food & Wine’s Dana Cowin; cookbook authors Giuliano Bugialli, Rozanne Gold, Deborah Madison, and, Sara Moulton; and many others—this is a family cookbook guaranteed to be loved by cooks (and kids) of all ages.
Please join us on Tuesday, October 15th at Sotheby’s for The Art of Cooking, a gala dinner and live auction to benefit The Sylvia Center’s programs. Part of the dinner will be prepared by TSC student chefs and chef instructors, and the event will honor Rachael Ray and the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, for their early and continuing support of our programs in NYC Housing Authority Community Centers. More details and the full invite coming soon!
We’d like to thank everyone who was involved with making our 6th Annual Farm to Table Dinner a lovely and successful experience!
