PA Live! Blog of the Week: La Cascina

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is La Cascina (http://oldtiogafarm.wordpress.com/).

La Cascina is the journal of Old Tioga Farm, located in Stillwater in Luzerne County. On that property Justin and Dillon Naylor operate a farm-to-table restaurant in the tradition of Italy, in a stone farmhouse that dates to 1831. While the blog, which has been publishing since September 2010, provides extensive information about the restaurant, it also provides plenty of background material about the guiding principles of and attitude towards food that are so important in making Old Tioga Farm much more than a simple farmhouse restaurant. The posts on La Cascina  reflect the old-world charm of the farm and restaurant. The Naylors will even share the occasional recipe!

Seating at the restaurant at Old Tioga Farm is extremely limited. Reservations are required and must be made months in advance of any planned visit. But you don't need a reservation to visit the blog La Cascina, which is open year-round! If you're someone who enjoys artisan-crafted food made and served in the finest traditions of the Italian countryside, Old Tioga Farm is definitely worth a visit - and so is La Cascina.
