Food, Fact & Fancy"
Having lived in the Finger Lake region of New York State for years,

region knows of the beautiful landscape, the delicious award-winning
wines, and a slower life that makes trips there so enjoyable.

Cake, The Spiedie and Harvest Carrot and Walnut Soup.

learn to appreciate this area much more.

to the Finger Lakes on a weekend trip.
