Custom Picnic Baskets are the most recent addition to The Croff House’s Specials and Packages. Partnering with Talbott and Arding – Hudson’s premier purveyor of prepared foods, cheeses and desserts – beginning May 1 we will be offering guests the opportunity to pre-order custom “picnic baskets” created from a selection of the chefs’ daily creations. In a recent article Plan the Perfect Hudson Valley Picnic in Hudson Valley Magazine Mona Talbott, one of the shop’s chef owners, is quoted:
“Picnics are so much about the senses; you have the beautiful sunlight, the wind in the trees…you don’t want to just chow down on a sandwich.”
Mona offers suggestions for items she believes are just the thing to create the perfect outdoor meal from cheeses and pates to chocolates and cookies (“a piece of cake would be too clumsy”). Talbott and Arding changes their offerings daily and can put together a delicious collection sure to suit a wide range of tastes; everything prepared using fresh, local ingredients and inspired by the flavors of France, Italy and North America.
If guests want we are also able to arrange wine or champagne to add to their al fresco feast through Hudson Wine Merchants. We wish we could also arrange music and great weather, but some things are out of our control.
The Croff House is pleased to be able to offer this wonderful service to enhance our guests’ experience in Hudson.
