Hosted by Chef Brett August, Cooking in the Catskills is a podcast (and forthcoming cookbook) that explores the history & current pulse of the Catskill Mountains through the lens of food.
Chef August dives deep into modern cuisine, as well as the history of food & hospitality in the Catskills — from the “Borscht Belt” bungalow colonies of the 1950s/60s to contemporary farm-to-table. Cooking in the Catskills celebrates the Catskill Mountains and what makes them so uniquely beloved through conversations about food, history, family, and the personal stories of his guests.
