About the Farmer’s Market Director: Pascale Le Draoulec
Pascale Le Draoulec is delighted to bring her brand of farmers market to NYBG, one of her favorite places in New York. Ms. Le Draoulec also manages the Hastings, Irvington, Chappaqua, and Bronxville farmers markets, which all have a reputation for being well-curated weekend hubs of their communities.
Before running farmers markets, Ms. Le Draoulec was a newspaper reporter for 18 years. She spent most of those years writing about food, and from 2001 to 2007 she was the lead restaurant critic at the New York Daily News where she won a James Beard award for her reviews.
She is the author of American Pie: Slices of Life and Pie from America’s Back Roads (Harper-Collins, 2002), which chronicles her cross-country road trip in an old Volvo 240 named “Betty” in search of her American roots—and people who still make pie from scratch.
A first-generation American, Le Draoulec was raised in California, in a decidedly French household obsessed with all things “food.” A hard-driving rain always meant foraging for plump snails in the backyard, purging them in a bucket of salt overnight in preparation for escargots a l’ai et au persil.
Ms. Le Draoulec learned to cook (and to make goat cheese and pluck a chicken) while living on a dilapidated dairy farm near Normandy in her 20s—long before there was anything chic or trendy about farm-to-table cuisine. Markets are her happy place.
