Almost 25 years ago, two friends with a passion for cooking opened The Main Course, Etc. with one clear ambition –– to share the foods they loved with the community they loved.
Behind a small storefront in Cold Spring, NY, they set up a commercial kitchen, outfitted it with pots and utensils from home, and set to work cooking.
