Adirondack Hors D’Oeuvres Tour Results Long Lake

Participants in the 2012 Hors D'Oeuvres Tour Long Lake

On Thursday, February 16, 2012 the Town of Long Lake opened it’s doors for a special evening out celebrating the Chef’s of Long Lake.

Four year-round restaurants in Long Lake, NY located in the Central Adirondacks were charged with creating three appetizers which could be from their current menu or created especially for the event. Each guest was served exactly the same appetizer selections and voted on a scale of 1-7 using criteria including: presentation, uniqueness, combination of flavors, pleasing to the palate and originality. Voters were asked to try not to be swayed by personal taste and to consider if the food is well prepared, cooked properly and tasty. Awards are given out to each restaurant recognizing the best appetizer for each location.

Over 40 judges were shuttled around Long Lake starting at 6pm and were home by 10:30pm to try 12 different appetizers. Guests hailed from Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, Newcomb, Syracuse, Columbia County and Long Lake. Everyone carefully critiqued and commented on the food served, the most common comment, “I wish I had more room!”

With 100% participation from our four year-round dinner service venues the 3rd Long Lake Hors D’oeuvres tour was a complete success. Participants raved: “Good, wow, comfort of home taste, tender and lovely, could make a meal out of this one.”

Venues for 2012 are The Cellar Restaurant and Pub, The Adirondack Hotel, The Long Lake Diner & Owl’s Head Pub and Quackenbush’s Long View Wilderness Lodge.

“This is the third year for this event and we’re so excited to have four incredible venue’s participating,” reports Alexandra Roalsvig, Director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism for Long Lake. “For $25, each guest will dine on three delicious appetizers from each restaurant and vote for the best appetizer at each location. The Long Lake Little Bus will provide free door to door transportation. Long Lake has always had a reputation for staying open in the winter and this year is no exception. We have terrific venues, a great group of chefs and great businesses keeping our town vibrant, even when Mother Nature has chosen not to be as cooperative as we’d like to see.”

Guests register and purchase tickets in advance from the Long Lake Parks and Recreation department by calling 518-624-3077. Coming from another town? Park and ride. Call ahead and the bus will meet you at your parking spot. The order of venue’s is selected at random prior to departure. Guests are handed a voting card and each restaurant has a half hour to serve before the guests move on to the next location.

“It’s always a challenge for our kitchens to suddenly get slammed with several orders at once. We take orders, mix the cocktails and deliver the plates as soon as we can. Our dining room remains open to regular business, so we’ve got two teams on deck to make the event happen.” says The Cellar Restaurant and Pub co-owner Michelle Hamdan. “Our goal is always to deliver the fine quality our guests expect and in our third year of competition, we have a system down and it’s all part of the fun.”

Every guest becomes the judge and vote on a points system considering presentation, quality, taste, texture and originality. Comments are encouraged. “We want people to let us know what they like and don’t like. We want to deliver the best we can. Feedback is always welcome” says Adirondack Hotel manager Margi Salhoff-Holton.

Newly installed Chef Dustin Traynor has been at Quackenbush’s Long View Wilderness Lodge since 2011 having worked at Beacon Hill and the former Long Lake Blarneystone. This is his first year for the competition and he’s eager to put Quackenbush’s on the map. Jim and Paula Piraino of the Long Lake Diner are ready to roll up their sleeves and get back in the game this year. “We have surprises up our sleeves. We look forward to seeing everyone come out. “

Adirondack Hotel Head Chef Matthew Newby is excited to try some new ideas for 2012 has this to say about the event, “I support local food sources as much as possible, and seek to promote the Northern New York Area and the Adirondacks in particular with our vendors to support the members of our small food community.” Chef Eric Hample of The Cellar is known for his homemade, original sauces and his ability to find the right combination of flavor to bring to the table.

Matt DeLaMater, author of Adirondack Eats, a regional Adirondack Dining Guide, looks forward to the evening out, having visited and reviewed over ninety Adirondack restaurants in the last year. “The hors d’oeuvres tour gives local chefs a chance to raise their game for the local community, who, for their part, gets to have a fun time sampling creations and casting their votes.”

Advanced Tickets are $25/$30 day of. Reservations are requested by Monday, February 13th to ensure the restaurants have enough time for delivery.

Each participating restaurant will be recognized for the best hors d’oeuvres served at the individual establishment. Winners will be announced on Friday, February 17th, 2012.

All the restaurants will be open for regular dining service the night of the Hors D’Oeuvres Tour.
