Norwegian chef Henning Nordanger's take on American comfort food


Located in the upstairs space above the historic Heinle’s General Store in Cochecton Center, Henning's Local is a place for everyone, from the smallest get-together to the largest celebration. The experience calls to mind the simple pleasures of food one finds at an inn in southern France or at a local Italian trattoria, while retaining the relaxed and rustic atmosphere of the Catskills. 

To showcase his love for good, honest food, Henning has built long-term relationships with many regional sustainable agricultural practices and businesses, including farms, bakeries, wineries, distilleries, and various culinary artisans.

Henning Nordanger was born and raised in Bergen, Norway. Escoffier-trained, he worked in several large hotel restaurants and mountain resorts throughout Norway, and for the King of Norway on his royal yacht. After coming to the United States almost 25 years ago, he began cooking in New York City, both in restaurants and as a private chef. Since 2006 he has lived in Barryville in Sullivan County and opened Henning’s Local in 2012. In 2020, he will open a second place in Round Top (located in Greene County in the northern Catskills) in collaboration with Round Top Productions, with a focus on food-related events such as cooking classes, pop-up dinners, and collaborations with chefs, bakers, and farmers from the region.
