For Thanksgiving, a big group of my family members (18
people!) is going to stay at Kutscher's, in Sullivan
County. I've never been there; can anyone who has give
me advice re: the food there?

    spent many vacations there, many yrs ago. Went back 4
    yrs. ago and saw some changes. Much has stayed the
    same. As far as the food, you do not go there for the
    food alone. It's good, and plentiful. Get used to
    ordering your entre, with "a side" of another entre
    for "a taste". That's common there. The hotel was
    still kosher when we were there which means, no
    smoking in the dining rm on friday nite or sat. (The
    Sabbath) No cooking on sat for breakfast.eggs are
    poached, lots of smoked and pickled fish on Sat. AM
    and dairy lunch on Sat.(salad platters etc.) Lots of
    things doing during the day and evening.Indoor pool,
    classes speakers. Enjoy!!!

      Oh, my gawd! Memories of family weekends at
      Kutscher's come rushing back. I sincerely hope, for
      your family's sake, that things have changed since I
      was a kid and used to go there with my folks in the
      '60s. Huge tables in the enormous dining room, huge
      menus, incredible amounts of food, and most of it
      completely unremarkable. If I remember correctly, the
      big draw was the variety and the amount of Eastern
      European Jewish (not kosher) food for the money, not
      necessarily the quality. But I have to assume that
      things have changed there in 30 years. Anyway, you'll
      be with your family and will be able to share the
      experience, good or bad. I just hope you all have a
      good sense of humor!
