Taste Niagara set for Saturday

Niagara Gazette — Taste Niagara 2013, an evening celebration of local foods and beverages, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the new Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, 28 Old Falls St., Niagara Falls.

Presented by the Niagara County Farm Bureau in association with the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County, the event is open to the public and will feature a station-style dinner, complimentary glass of wine or beer, a brief presentation and tours of the state-of-the-art Culinary Institute, home of Niagara County Community College’s culinary arts, baking and pastry arts program. A cash bar will also be available.

The fourth annual farm-to-plate dinner event is organized to showcase the surprising ease of year-round “local” eating.

Culinary Institute staff and students will prepare appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts using as many locally produced foods as possible.

The base ingredient list is surprisingly lengthy for cooks in Niagara County, especially in winter, according to Farm Bureau member Julie Blackman. Those items include: Fresh pork, beef and eggs. Cold-stored potatoes, cabbage, butternut squash, apples. Frozen summer-harvested produce. Honey, maple syrup, fruit glazes, walnuts. Milk-based products including cream, cheese and Lake Effect Ice Cream.

The dinner will be served station-style, for stand-up grazing or sit-down eating as diners prefer. Niagara Wine Trail wines and microbrews will be served as well.

Taste Niagara is moving to to the culinary institute after three years at the Tuscarora Inn in Lockport.

Tickets are just $30 per person and reservations can be made by calling 735-7791 or emailing niagcofb@yahoo.com. Free parking will be available in the Rainbow Ramp, located on the north end of the Culinary Institute.

Sponsors of the event include Tops Markets, Western New York Energy LLC, Bencal Farms, Amy Hope Witryol, Farm Credit East, Crop Production Services, Niagara County Soil & Water Conservation District, Buffalo Hotel Supply and Ross Rental.

  • NAD third person.jpg REVIEW: Meandering melodrama "Third Person," is structured like "Crash." Lightning doesn't strike twice for writer-director Paul Haggis with "Third Person," a meandering melodrama that is structured exactly like his "Crash," which undeservedly won the 2006 Academy Award for best picture over the much better "Brokeback Mountain." Haggis again tries to juggle multiple storylines, but this time the plot threads unravel and nothing we see or hear is very engaging.
