I love to recreate iconic Upstate New York Regional Dishes and “lost” recipes from businesses no longer with us!
Upstate New York Pecan Pie recipe from the Kopper Kettle Restaurant, a beloved family restaurant that was known for having the best pies in Rochester.
Chicken Francese, (Chicken French), is a popular Upstate New York Italian American restaurant dish that can easily be made at home. This recipe from Canandaigua features golden brown tender chicken cutlets nestled in a buttery, lemon pan sauce.
Inspired by a old newspaper clipping recipe for the house salad dressing from the Changing Scenes restaurant in Rochester, this creamy garlic parmesan salad dressing is super easy to make, and absolutely delicious!
Recreate the Northern New York roadside stand staple in your own kitchen! This sauce is a key ingredient for an Upstate New York Michigan, which is a red hot (usually Glacier hot dog) on a New England Style Roll, with meat sauce and onions.
Salt potatoes are an Upstate Summertime staple, they are great to take to a picnic as a dish to pass, and are easy to prepare, especially in the Instantpot! Not only do they cook cup faster, but the pressurized cooking results in a potato with an unbelievably creamy center. You’ll love making salt potatoes in your pressure cooker!
A rich, dense, dark chocolate bourbon pound cake recipe from Chef Paula Stadtmiller of Premier Pastry in Rochester.
Served at both Mario’s Pizza & Pasta and Mario’s Via Abruzzi Customers would often line up waiting for freshly baked rolls to be brought out directly from the oven to the salad bar.
