In an effort to bring the bustle back to Catskill, business owners and community members are working together by lending goods, services, and space to one another. One of these communal efforts is Catskill Action Team's grassroots restaurant recruitment project, Catskill is Cooking.

Applicants submit their restaurant concept, menu, and resume to the judges, who are also local chefs. The judges include Max Cenci from Hudson's Ca' Mea, Ana Sporer from Ruby's Hotel in Freehold and instructor at the New York Restaurant School and the Institute of Culinary education, and Luc Moeys from Oriole 9, Yum Yum, and Love Bites in Woodstock, Kingston, and Saugerties.

The chosen contestants will compete in a summer tasting event on Main Street and the winner receives a turnkey restaurant on Main Street with 3 to 6 months paid rent courtesy of the Catskill Local Development Corporation. The Catskill LDC will also help the winner develop a business plan and find funding from county resources. The chef-judges will serve as mentors to the fledgling restaurant owner. For details, email catskilliscooking@gmail.com.
