Spencertown Academy Art Center's Conversations with Neighbors presents a talk with acclaimed culinary experts and Columbia County residents Zak Pelaccio and Ruth Reichl on December 14. Best known for launching the Fatty Crab and Fatty `Cue eateries in New York City, Pelaccio launched the über farm-to-table Fish & Game in Hudson. Purchasing the entire animals, Pelaccio uses every part, while making his own condiments and buying only local plates, bowls, and furniture. Reichl, former editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine, is the host and executive producer of the two-time James Beard Award-winning series "Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie." The culinary giants will discuss heightening and harnessing the use of local foods in dining practices. A reception featuring local fare will follow the discussion. $20.
