Food from Hudson Valley Grocery Store to Star in HBO Series
A Hudson Valley grocery store cooked food for a Hollywood A-lister and shared its recipe for a meal that's going to be featured on HBO.
On Wednesday, Adams Fairacre Farms announced its Poughkeepsie Prepared Foods team cooked for the HBO series I Know This Much Is True starring Mark Ruffalo. The miniseries has filmed all over the Hudson Valley recently.
Ruffalo, who lives in the Hudson Valley, is playing twin brothers and serving as executive producer in the limited series based on the best selling novel by Wally Lamb. Oscar-winner Melissa Leo and Rosie O'Donnell, Archie Panjabi, Imogen Poots and Juliette Lewis also star in the miniseries.
"Our chicken cacciatore will likely make its on-screen debut during a cooking scene set in the 1930s, according to a crew member," Adams Fairacre Farms wrote on Facebook. "Great job, chefs!"
Adams also provided a detailed recipe for the chicken cacciatore so you can try it at home.
