Chefs for Clearwater returns to The CIA 10/14 | Sponsored | Culinary Events | Hudson Valley | Hudson Valley; Chronogram
Have a seat and take a stand! Join the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and co-hosts Chef Terrance Brennan and CIA Senior Director Chef Waldy Malouf for Chefs For Clearwater, at the Culinary Institute of America. The event takes place at the CIA on October 14 from 4 to 8pm. Chef Brennan is working with 5 local chefs to produce a five-course meal prepared with local, seasonal ingredients.

"For a chef, it's all about the ingredients, and for those ingredients, it's all about the soil,” chef Brennan says. “The chef can be an activist of sorts, but it comes down to taste as most important, and then for me, taking care of the people who provide our food by supporting them, buying their cover crops, and using their bruised tomatoes.” 

The event will support Clearwater's mission of protecting and restoring the Hudson River, its tributaries, and watershed. With modern pollution challenges, the health of the water is largely determined by the health of the land. More than five million people call the Hudson River watershed home, and guests at the Chefs for Clearwater event will be helping to preserve the natural bounty of our region for all of them—now and for generations to come. Our featured chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, ranchers, vintners, brewers, and cider makers have been invited to participate because of their demonstrated commitment to practicing and advancing sustainable agriculture and socially responsible business practices.


Our featured chefs are Chef Josh Kroner, Terrapin Restaurant, Rhinebeck; Chef Beau Widener, Crabtree's Kittle House, Chappaqua; Chef Jason Potanovich, Bocuse Restaurant, Hyde Park; Chef Brian Kaywork, American Bounty, Hyde Park; and Chef Kristina DePalma, The Roundhouse, Beacon.
We're delighted to welcome back Master of Ceremonies Tom Chapin, who will be joined by "The Bullish Farmer" John Ubaldo as guest speaker. Featuring music by the New Breaks, and live auction with Nicho Lowry.

Join us for an amazing evening at the CIA and taste the bounty of our land to protect our water. Reserve your tickets for this unique culinary event and check out our Instagram #chefsforclearwater.
