We asked what you liked most about our first iteration of More Than a Meal and you answered…

“It's all about the vibe, isn't it? Good food in a place whose history and soul is powerfully tangible - and where the organization's efforts remain centered around nurturing appreciation of that history and supporting its everlasting impact on the present and future of music and the arts.”

“Loved our server [Bethel Woods Staff Member] who wasn’t really a server, loved the food, the setting and the ability to walk around the grounds.”

“Food was outstanding. Setting always warms my soul”

So now, we are adding five more meals and amping up the menu, music, and experience - unleashing the culinary talents of Chef Jasper Alivia.

 

DINNER WITH A SOUNDTRACK: HAWAII IN CONTRAST

During the 1960s, a market was created to make Hawaii a signature travel destination, but today, it is a state of stark contrasts. The only island state, Hawaii is also the only U.S. state located outside of continental North America, and the only state that was formerly a sovereign nation.  Hawaii in Contrast will provide you a culinary experience on the history of Hawaii, featuring traditional and fusion dishes from this Pacific paradise lost.

About Chef Jasper

Born in the Philippines and raised in American Samoa, Jasper Alivia did not initially plan for his life to be so intertwined with food and restaurants. He moved to Philadelphia to attend Saint Joseph’s University where he received his B.A. in Economics. Quickly he realized that cooking was his calling and soon left a promising job in finance to work in restaurants in Philadelphia. He later moved to New York City to attend the French Culinary Institute, and put in work and training at some of the highest rated restaurants in town, including Savoy and Park Avalon.

Now calling the Catskills home, his hope as the Executive Chef of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is to provide high-quality food to complement the Center’s variety of programs, and to source ingredients locally, highlighting regional cuisine with global influences.
