Epicurean Road Rally & Farm Tours

Greetings Rally Fans,

Planning for the 2010 Fall Road Rally is underway. The Fall date is to be announced. I think everyone will very much enjoy the pit stops we have in mind for this one. If you attended past rallies, you got to experience a re-vamped version of the rally…less miles, more time to spend at pit stops, and the new, much loved, alphabet scavenger hunt game. Oh, and don’t forget the mind boggling clues – you’ll have your fair share of those as well! If you have never participated in a Road Rally, this is the year to consider it. Great per person price includes a buffet breakfast at the Canal House, a trip through the beautiful Catskill and Hudson Valley, interesting pit stops that provide tasty tapas, games and trivia and ending the day back at the Canal House with a Champagne and Hors d’oeuvres Reception. Prizes, including a grand prize of two seven-course dinners at the Canal House, will be awarded to the cars with the most points.

Reservations are required and should be in no later than one week before the event. Once the date has been established a registration form will be available.

Hope to see you then!

Elizabeth Mowry opened the sealed manila envelope and pulled out the instructions for chef John Novi’s Epicurean Road Rally. Her son, Albert Novak, had already fired up the engine in his dark green Jeep Cherokee, parked out side Novi’s Depuy Canal House in High Falls, New York. “Start your engines, crank open the sun roof, and let’s go!”, Mowry said, reading from the instructions.

It was immediately clear that this was not just going to be another road rally – it was going to be a day filled with delicious foods, fun and excitement and a tour of the Hudson Valley. Appreciating sites one does not normally have the time to stop and admire…so…start your engines and put on your seatbelts.
