As the leaves change color, and the temperatures drop, the chef is preparing a special, seasonal meal inspired by the Hudson Valley on Oct. 15 in Milbrook, N.Y.
“The beauty of Millbrook reminds me of a European winery,” Sosa tells PEOPLE. “The inspiration behind the menu is to create a meal pulling from the accumulations of my travels and taking the aesthetic of the vineyard, the beauty of the wine and infusing them with my food.”
Sosa will cook a tasting menu – it’s $125 per person – in association with Bull & Buddha restaurant. Among his offerings: curried apple soup and duck pastrami with cherry confit to start.
The three-course meal will also feature spiced pumpkin pie soup; slow-roasted salmon with charred eggplant and sweet and sour cherry; and pork belly with old-fashioned mustard, apple and ginger chutney.
