Zakary Pelaccio and Jori Jayne Emde left New York City to pursue a more idyllic life in the Hudson Valley. When the couple have the occasional break from their restaurant, Fish & Game, they host grilling parties—one payoff of all their hands-on work in the garden.
It is summer.
Jori Jayne and I lovingly tend the Fish & Game gardens along with an alternating roster of restaurant staff. Our efforts are not in vain, as evidenced by the brilliant colors hiding beneath a canopy of green leaves, soaking in the Hudson Valley sunshine. Although our climate suffers harsher vicissitudes, we share the same latitude as Barcelona, and, come summer, the intensity of the sun reminds us of this geographical kinship.
