Chefs A' Field: Kids on the Farm
Ice Cream, from a Cow: Chef Bill Telepan & Daughte
Telepan Restaurant - New York, NY; Ronnybrook Farm - Ancramdale, NY James Beard Award winner Bill Telepan garners reviews that rave about the "clarity and focus of his food...elegant without gimmickry" (Gourmet) and that commend his cuisine for "[putting] its faith in fundamental virtues; its freshness, the pureness or punch of the flavors; the skill with which it's been cooked" (The New York Times) - so it is no surprise that a trip to the farm happens regularly. Accompanied by his daughter, as he often is, Chef Telepan heads out on a milking adventure with farmer Ron Ronnybrook in upstate New York. "Hopelessly out of date, and proud of it," says Ron while milking and making milk products the way his family has for three generations, in small batches, delivered at peak freshness, pasteurized and hormone-free. Recipes: Winter Beet Salad with Ronnybrook Yogurt-Dill Dressing; Fresh Farm Egg Fettuccine with Cauliflower, Black Pepper & NY Farmer's Cheese; Vanilla Winter Pudding with Caramelized Hudson Valley Oranges; Fresh Cows Ice Cream.
