5 Questions with Lauren Rose

What is your favorite Saratoga restaurant and what is your favorite thing to order there?

My schedule varies from day-to-day and because I love fresh, healthy food you are likely to find me “grazing” at Putnam Market. I am addicted to their Kale salad, crave their baked broccoli, and find the quinoa-based energy salad simply irresistible!

What is your favorite local Saratoga event?

As a family, we look forward to the Farmer’s Markets moving outdoors. With two major Farmer’s Markets in town, there’s really no excuse for us not to buy and eat locally grown produce. Buying what’s in season forces me to be more creative when it comes to planning a meal, plus I find it calming and centering to stroll the market stalls with a cup of coffee in hand.

What is one thing you have always wanted to do in Saratoga but still have not done?

It is absolutely crazy (and a tad embarrassing to admit), but I have never been to the Ballet Gala. It’s been on my list of key events every single year since I moved back to this area ten years ago, but something always comes up. Will this be my year? I really hope so.

Your perfect weekend would always include…?

Quality time outside with my family. We love to hike, camp and this year will be our first year rock climbing together in the Adirondacks. I can’t wait!

If you were a cocktail what would you be?

I’m a wine drinker, but if there is a cocktail that marries wine, coffee and dark chocolate – that’s definitely me.
