CIA to Host Hudson Valley Regional Fest

Poughkeepsie — The 2006 Taste of the Hudson Wine and Epicurean Arts Festival will be held Nov. 5 at the Culinary Institute of America.

The event, a fundraiser for St. Francis Hospital and Health Center, is among the most noted food and wine events in the region. About 40 restaurants and purveyors from the Hudson Valley and beyond will be featured, along with wines and foods prepared by the region's best-regarded chefs.

The event celebrates all things culinary and will include auctions, demonstrations, book-signings and appearances by chefs and wine experts. New this year are several Hudson Valley specialties, such as eau de vie, liqueur, fruit wines, beer, chocolate, cheese and ice cream.

Proceeds will benefit the $9.4 million expansion of the hospital's Trauma and Emergency Services. It is sponsored by the St. Francis Health Care Foundation and M&T Bank.

Reserve tickets are required and range from $150-$200, a portion of which is tax-deductible. Call 431-8707 or visit for more information.
