Daniel Boulud, one of the culinary world’s leading lights, was raised in Lyon, France, but has called New York home for over three decades. When he’s not overseeing his restaurants in seven cities across the globe—including the Michelin-starred New York City flagship, Daniel—he has spent many happy hours in upstate New York and Western Massachusetts. The soul-restoring trip he devised, through the scenic rolling hills of upstate New York and Massachusetts, is deeply personal to him—especially the first stop, Glenmere Mansion, “which holds a special place in my heart,” he says. “It was at Glenmere that I had the most magical weekend marrying my wife, Katherine.” This special eight-hour journey through pine-ringed lakes and the Berkshire and Adironack mountains has it all: fresh air, birdsong, summer-camp activities—and of course, magnificent food.
