Signing, Drinks & Tastings

Fri, Apr 7th, 2017 / 5:30–7:30PM

Part cookbook and part guidebook, Project No. 258 is soulful, useful, funny, and utterly unique. It provides a vividly uncompromising look at the ingredients, techniques, and collaborators at the heart of a great Hudson Valley restaurant. Join the authors, restaurant owners and book designer for food, drink and a signing of the newly released book.

Project 258 is the result of writer-photographer Peter Barrett’s three years spent as artist-in-residence at Fish & Game, from the restaurant’s inception, documenting James Beard Award-winning chef Zak Pelaccio and his team’s processes and chasing their outstanding ingredients up the supply chain to their local sources. It digs deeper into what “farm to table” really means and, through its transparency, reinvigorates the overused term.

Designed by Sarah Rainwater Design, the casebound book is 348 pages, sized at 12 x 9 inches with 370 color photos, 27 illustrations and one map. It's worth a closer look. Limited copies on hand at the event for $50. The RISD Store will carry the book thereafter.
