Join us for a book signing on October 28th at 10am with Nancy Fuller, host of a” Farmhouse Rules”, a cooking show on Food Network. Copies of her bestselling cookbook will be available for signing and purchase after her talk and food sampling.

Born on a 500-acre dairy farm in upstate New York, Nancy Fuller’s childhood instilled in her a love and respect for food, farmers, and the land where it is grown. After completing her education and in the throes of raising her farm family, Nancy purchased a local 1950s motel, added a restaurant, which eventually led to a successful 25-year career as a caterer. She honed her cooking style and received her training by feeding a family of eight, three times a day, seven days a week. In 2006 Nancy invested in her husband David’s company Ginsberg’s Foods, the largest independent food distribution company in the Hudson Valley. As co-owner and Executive Vice President of Ginsberg’s Foods, Nancy’s greatest influence has been to emphasize the importance in expanding the availability and quality of fresh, in season, products from the local farmers within the community. Nancy hosts an in-kitchen show on Food Network, Farmhouse Rules.

Finishing its seventh season, Farmhouse Rules has inspired millions of viewers with her personal mission to put the family back at the dinner table. Nancy’s natural charisma on camera has quickly established her as a staple on Food Network’s weekend line-up. Filmed on location at her 18th –century farmhouse, the show also provides Nancy another vehicle to advocate for the region’s hard-working farmers continuing to promote the farm to table movement, which she has long supported.

The recipes, food, friends and family on her show embody her philosophy of feeding others with simple delicious meals from the heart. Nancy serves as a judge for Food Network’s hit series Holiday Baking Championship, Spring Baking Championship, Clash of the Grandmas, Guilty Pleasures and most recently, Dessert Games. The shows have garnered over two million viewers and have been renewed for additional seasons. Nancy has also made appearances on Home & Family (Hallmark Channel), Today Show, Rachael Ray Show, The Chew, The Kitchen, In the Kitchen with David (QVC), and Wendy Williams. Nancy’s debut cookbook, published in October 2015, was featured multiple times in People Magazine, made the USA Today Best Seller List, and the Wall Street Journal’s Best Seller List. True to Nancy’s style her cookbook, titled Farmhouse Rules, highlights the area she loves and calls home. Nancy crafted recipes that are near and dear, influenced by personal stories, and feature her easy, “chop chop in the pot,” entertaining style.
