“A Farm-to-Table Eatery Takes a Leap of Faith…How We Came to Support NYS Wines” with Tim Hardiman

The Tailor and the Cook restaurant has been one of the brightest spots in Utica’s rich culinary nightlife for the past decade. When it was conceived, owner and executive chef Tim Hardiman envisioned offering provocative cuisine and top-notch service in a comfortable atmosphere. They endeavored to do this in a location and neighborhood rich with local history. Obtaining local products is of the utmost importance to The Tailor and the Cook. Sourcing ingredients from New York State farms allows them to cook with the seasons and serve the freshest and most creative dishes. In turn, this business model enhances the environmental and economic health of the community. Tim will talk about how they came to recognize and promote the unique quality of New York State wines. You will learn about cool climate viticulture, the wine varietals of NYS, and much more about the wine industry of New York and how it became a passion project for Hardiman and a core tenet of the mission of his business. 

Year after year, expert speakers in our popular Saturday Series draw an audience from far and near. Participants leave with knowledge they can use in their own gardens, yards, and homes. Some events include demonstrations. The Hamilton College campus is an accredited arboretum; please consider time to explore if you attend one of our events.

All events in this series are free and open to the public.  Directions and (parking behind Ferguson House, Map #48)
