Having lived in the Finger Lake region of New York State for years,
why not pen a book on the experience? Anyone who has been to the
region knows of the beautiful landscape, the delicious award-winning
wines, and a slower life that makes trips there so enjoyable.
Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Keuka Lake Wine
Cake, The Spiedie and Harvest Carrot and Walnut Soup.
Each recipe is preceded by facts concerning upstate New York. Some
them are amusing, others are very interesting, but in every case,
learn to appreciate this area much more.
These recipes make you feel as if you have traveled
to the Finger Lakes on a weekend trip.
