Zakary Pelaccio is chef/owner of Fish & Game in Hudson, New York.
Zakary's approach to food is not only a product of time spent with chef luminaries like Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller, but is also heavily influenced by his travels across Western Europe and his time spent traveling throughout Asia and living in Malaysia.
Pelaccio is a passionate member of Slow Food, for which he edited a Slow Food USA eating and drinking guide to New York City, and is an ardent supporter of using fresh seasonal products from small, local farms and regional artisans and merchants. Zakary is also on the advisory board of Heritage Foods USA, a new company focused on resurrecting rare and near extinct breeds of animals indigenous to the United States.
