From the New York Times' Dining Section...

Welcome to the Country: Columbia County as a food destination outside of NYC that can be re-discovered again and again and again. (How many times have you been?)

A New Tasting Menu in the Baby Section: The $3.6 billion a year business of baby food.

PLUS...

Organic Produce, Artisanal Bread, A-List Farmers: No Dean & Deluca yet, but in Litchfield County, CT, a New Yorker will feel at home with the selection of sophisticated foodstuffs.
