2015 Rensselaerville, NY

September 12, 2015 – September 13, 2015


This annual gathering is the Woodstock of food—an intense, weekend symposium designed to raise the bar on how food stories are told and to connect generations of food-inspired artists, writers, web producers, documentary filmmakers and broadcasters. Every year, LongHouse focuses on a single story to create a multi-media Pop-Up Food Magazine that allows participants to experience state-of-the-art food stories in short, documentary films, live interviews, photography, music, radio broadcast, spoken word, fine art, web-based mapping and hands-on cooking.

LongHouse 2015 delves into the Chinese American Experience with a series of unexpected stories, presentations and performances.

LongHouse Food Revival | September 12 & 13

Full Weekend Registration: $250

Located on a historic dairy farm in upstate New York, the LongHouse Food Revival combines original multimedia presentations, great discussions and insight from leading thinkers in food media today. It’s a place to make new friends, forge new connections and cook up new ideas. Our meals are one-time, unscripted happenings that emanate from our Live Fire Cooking Arena — you won’t experience anything like this anywhere else. People leave LongHouse Food Revival with full bellies and full minds.

The weekend will kick off with a lunch of chun-bing, Northern China’s version of a burrito, crafted from scratch and made-to-order by the young kitchen powerhouses from Junzi Kitchen of New Haven, CT.

After lunch, we’ll gather in the barn for our Pop-Up Food Magazine, a series of multimedia presentations, original documentary films, presentations by authors, bloggers, publishers and producers, as well as spoken word and cooking demonstrations, to set the stage for an afternoon of discussion. The experience has been called magical by more than one hard-bitten veteran of the nation’s food media corps.


Live Fire Feast Only: $125

Chef and author Kian Lam Kho stands at the helm of a team of fearless chefs to orchestrate a spectacle of stir-frying, braising and steaming, offering a Chinese take on the bounty of the Hudson River Valley.


Food Flea Only: $25 (includes breakfast)

Join us as we cook 400lbs of Nueske’s bacon, and then mingle with 50 food entrepreneurs, farmers, artisans, and food book publishers at our country marketplace. Retail therapy! Authors will also be signing copies of their books.
