WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Four of the region’s top chefs will reveal some of their culinary secrets on Saturday, June 6, in the NewYork-Presbyterian Chef Demo and Farmers Market Tent at Westchester Magazine’s 5th Annual Wine and Food Festival.

Sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian, the tent will be part of the Grand Tasting Village at the Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla, a new signature event of the four-day festival.

Guests will revel in the best of Westchester’s food and wine scene, with a special focus on the farm-to-table approach to cooking that emphasizes the use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

The tent will open at noon, followed by a chef demonstration of cutlery and cookware of J.A. Henckels International at 12:30 p.m.

The master chef cooking demonstrations will focus on a range of cuisines including Latin-American, contemporary American, farm-to-table, and gourmet pizza.

The chefs will work their culinary magic on a stage, with a full demo kitchen provided by Thermador as they teach the audience their techniques and provide samples of their unique dishes after each demonstration.

Here's the demonstration schedule:

  • 1 p.m. - Rafael Palomino, Sonora, Port Chester
  • 2 p.m. - Peter X. Kelly, Xaviars Restaurant Group, Yonkers
  • 3 p.m. - Leslie Lampert, Café of Love, Mount Kisco
  • 4 p.m. - Bruno DiFabio, Amore Cucina, Scarsdale (DiFabio was recently judged on "Chopped")

Visitors to the NewYork-Presbyterian Chef Demo and Farmers Market Tent can also browse a Farmers Market, new to the event this year, which will feature 10 vendors selling vegetables, meats, cheeses and baked goods from the Hudson Valley.

Some of the vendors will be John Boy’s Market, Plum Plum’s Cheese, DoReMe Farms, Larchmont Charcuterie and Meredith’s Bakery.
