Digging Deeper: A Chef's Garden in the Catskills

Digging Deeper: A Chef's Garden in the Catskills

Scribners Catskill Lodge

Sat, Jun 22, 2019
10:30 AM

Melding gardening culture and farm strategy and making it all work on an exposed site at an elevation of 1,950 feet is the job of Scribner’s Catskill Lodge staff horticulturist, Andrew Koehn. Perhaps best known for his innovative work as the longtime Garden Manager at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, Andrew brings 40 years of experience to this project. Participants will learn why Andrew selected the varieties he did for 2019, and get firsthand and even hands-on insights into scheduling crops, organic growing techniques, soil considerations, and the garden's relationship with a professional kitchen. He’ll also talk about choices made—the good, the bad, and the beautiful—in creating this new garden.

The hotel chef will serve a garden to table treat and share a favorite recipe featuring garden bounty from the Lodge.

Scribner's Catskill Lodge in Hunter, New York, boasts a new 6,000 square foot formal kitchen garden with panoramic views of the Catskills, including the ski slopes on Hunter Mountain. Providing vegetables and herbs for the inn’s locavore restaurant, Prospect, varieties grown in this luxe space are carefully selected to combine peak flavor with exceptional visual appeal. To maximize health benefits in the garden and on the table, everything is grown organically. To warm up the soil on this mountain top and bring the produce within easy view of guests and easy reach of gardeners and chefs, everything is grown in 28-inch high raised beds.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
