Healthy Living Meat Dept. at The Saratoga Food and Wine Festival

Saratoga’s most celebrated culinary event is here – and Healthy Living is enthralled to be a sponsor! We’re extremely proud to be involved in our first ever Saratoga Food and Wine Festival by providing premiere ingredients, wine tastings, and delicious catered foods for this spectacular event. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find from Healthy Living’s fabulous Meat Department at the Festival!

THE CONNOISSEUR’S TENT, where we are extremely proud to be the exclusive culinary purveyor! Our dedicated and inspiring staff will be there with bells on to provide ticket-holders with a spread so epic you’ll think you’ve flown to France!

Where there’s cheese, hors d’oeuvres, and wine, there must too be meat; we’ll have our fabulous Meat Buyer extraordinaire Paul Hoffman here sampling some of his favorite charcuteries, sausages, and more! He’ll talk about sourcing local meat and discuss our butchering techniques; he’ll delve deeply into the nose-to-tail method and show you how Healthy Living’s Meat Department strives for zero waste and maximum flavor. This will be in The Connoisseur’s tent, too…with all the absurdly tasty food inside, it’s more than worth the cost of admission! Tickets (only 200, act fast!) for the Connoisseur’s tent are $60 extra; there will be live music, living-room style seating, a relaxed atmosphere, and a practically unlimited amount of food.
