Andes Hotel featured on cooking show


Andes — On Thursday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m., on the popular Cooking Channel show, “Hook, Line & Dinner” hosted by Ben Sargent, for culinary and fishing enthusiasts, watch the process of catching, smoking and cooking local Catskill Mountain eel with two of Delaware County’s own.

With a crafty recluse, Ray Turner, in the Catskills on the Delaware River in Hancock, Ben rebuilds a weir and learns to fish for and smoke eels. He searches the local area and takes his catch to a savvy chef and owner, Ed O’Neill, at the beautiful Andes Hotel where he prepares an amazing chowder and Provencale that make eel something everyone will want to eat.
