A Cullinary "Pop up": Westerly Canteen in Residence at Troutbeck
We're so pleased to announce that Chef Molly Levine and farmer Alexandra Kaindl of Westerly Canteen are leading our celebrated culinary program through January, while Troutbeck’s Executive Chef, 5-time Michelin Star recipient and 2021 James Beard Award Semi-Finalist Gabe McMackin takes leave with his growing family.
Westerly Canteen’s menus are inspired by years of cooking in California, the aperitivo tradition in Italy, the cave á mangers (wine bars) of France, and the growers of our food here in the Hudson Valley. Expect menus to reflect these playful, celebratory traditions in an honest, unpretentious manner.

DECEMBER ART ON VIEW: ERIC HIBIT, FLOWERS FROM CANADA
As part of our ongoing art collaboration with the Wassaic Project, Troutbeck is delighted to exhibit Eric Hibit, Flowers From Canada, a solo show curated by Will Hutnick.
As the name suggests, Hibit's show is flower-focussed, many in watercolor and some in acrylic, and is inspired by time spent intimately observing flowers in a Canadian public garden, before others were allowed in. Hibit's floral curiosity dovetails gracefully with Troutbeck's long history of horticulture.

NEW YEAR'S EVE
Troutbeck is returning to its pre-pandemic sense of fun with a New Year’s Eve party for grown ups only in its historic Manor House.
The evening begins at 8pm with sexy starters such as oysters and raw bar; crudités and cheese boards, which will give way to small bites like risotto with truffles, short rib with chimichurri and mustardy biscuits with smoked ham, served easy-to-eat while merry-making. Plentiful and satisfying late night food—think sliders and grilled cheese—and sweets will follow.
Guests will enjoy a select open bar for the evening including a Champagne toast at midnight, music for fun and dancing, and rollicking special entertainment.
