New York Culinary Arts
New York State offers a wide variety of world-class culinary institutes and schools taught by renowned world masters using the finest in equipment and ingredients.

The Adirondacks & the Lake Champlain Valley of Upstate New York & Vermont have long been known for their truly unique & varied cuisine ranging from fresh caught native brook trout cooked over an open campfire to world class dining at five star resorts.

In the internationally acclaimed City of Saratoga Springs, diners can choose from over fifty exciting restaurants with menus featuring everything from spicy Mexican foods to hearty homecooked meals. If romantic candle light dining in a Great Camp setting appeals to you, the beautiful Saranac Lake and Lake Placid region offers an unparralled experience. Because of the abundant fish and game found throughout the Adirondacks, visitors have the opportunity to sample such native culinary delights as smoked
venison, roast duck, and fresh rainbow trout.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of some of our most popular travel destinations including Saratoga Springs, Ballston Spa, Glens Falls, Lake George, Ticonderoga, Old Forge, Blue Mt. Lake, Canton, Watertown, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid (host of the 1932 & 1980 winter Olympics) and the City of Plattsburgh. In neighboring Vermont, experience the beauty of Lake Champlain and the Lake Champlain Valley featuring the historic communities of Burlington, Shelburne, Charlotte, Vergennes, Middlebury, St Albans, and the Grand Isles of NW Vermont.
