I recently returned to Rochester, NY, after living in food and wine locations and traveling solo around the world filming cooking schools. Those videos can be viewed on Cookingtipstv.com with a companion e-book documenting my trip with the recipes accompanying the videos.
I left the Sonoma Valley after the fires devastated the area which will take years to recover. I decided the time had come to go back to my roots and explore the local food and wine producers here.
I’ve had friends send me Rochester food specialties and realized I missed those old flavors. The food and wine scene has exploded in Western New York and it will be fun to revisit old tastes and explore new.
I will be posting my findings and welcome you to join me along the way.
