New York City may be a renowned global food hub. But just north of the Tri-State Area lies the rich, verdant Hudson Valley — home to wonderful farms, cheese producers and craft distilleries (plus restaurants that use the local products to their full potential). A new cookbook, Hudson Valley Chef's Table, is a compilation of recipes from beloved restaurants from Westchester to Columbia counties.

This rich lamb meatball recipe comes from chef Mike Abruzese at Polpettina in Eastchester, NY. Did we mention the Hudson Valley has some of the best foie gras on earth?
