The Culinarians' Home, New Paltz

December 2016 -

The Culinarians' Home in New Paltz, New York was originally the home of the maitre'd, of the Waldorf Astoria, Oscar Tschirky.  It became a retirement community for chefs, and now for several years has been an assisted living facility, open to the general public.  Terry Newman, the administrator for the past 27 years, showed me around the inside of the house, and told me some of the history of the place, which I quite enjoyed.
