The Hudson Valley has become synonymous with the type of idyllic landscape at the heart of the farm-to-table ethos. Tonight, local legends Tony and Leslie Balassone are bringing their nationally-acclaimed, European-inspired fare to the Beard House, crafting a menu with culinary comrade Philip Canapini that showcases the diverse bounty of the Valley’s lush fields and farms. Expect sophisticated yet whimsical dishes like Savory Éclairs with Herbed Pâte à Choux, Dad’s Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, and Basil Pesto; Rock Shrimp–Fennel Flan with Bouillabaisse Jus and Cremini Crisps; and Barbecue-Braised Pork Cheeks with Purple Chowchow, Yuca Frites, and Avocado–Coriander Crema, which transform the wealth of the land into edibles indulgences on the plate.
