Today's ride on the foodie-go-round


• Nominations are being sought for the "Rising Star Chefs" competition, part of the 7th annual Albany Chefs' Food & Wine Festival: Wine & Dine for the Arts, perhaps the longest title for any such event on record. It is scheduled for January 14-16 at the Hilton Albany. The process to select young chefs from the region to compete for top honors in their division goes through the "Table Hopping" blog on You can get all the details, rules and timetable by going to that site.


• The Three Stallion Inn and Montague Golf Club in Randolph, VT, are up for sale for a combined asking price of $4.15 million. Owner Jessie "Sam" Sammis, 77, told the Valley News in an interview, "I’m along in my years, and I want to spend some time with family and travel. My wife and I have been running the inn for 44 years.” He also has put up 688 subdivided acres in the neighboring Green Mountain Stock Farm on the market for a total of roughly $5.2 million. The inn, known for its catered events, conference facilities and weddings, is located at 665 Stock Farm Road.


 • If you just can't get enough different brands of bottled water, you'll love this news. A brand called JUST water, packaged in Glens Falls in a former church, has signed an agreement with Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service to distribute its products from the Capital Region to the Canadian border. The product, sourced from an Adirondack watershed and purchased from the City of Glens Falls, already is sold in the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest, and the South, according to a map on the company website.
