A Cure for Cabin Fever!Feb 10th, 2012 | By NEF staff | Category: Uncategorized
This winter, we’ve enjoyed mild weather in New England — a lovely and welcome change! But that doesn’t mean we’re immune from Cabin Fever. There are cold snaps, head colds, dark days, and a smattering of snow here and there. The groundhog has seen his shadow, so we’re in for six more weeks of winter . . . a perfect time to curl up with the latest issue of Northeast FLAVOR.
What better way to warm up on a cold, dark day than with a bowl of chowder? We’ve got soul-warming choices for you to try including our classic New England Fish Chowder featured on the cover. Our scallop story will make you long to visit the islands (well, Nantucket), but if that’s not enough tropical island time for you, come with us as we experience the culinary pleasures of the Dominican Republic.
Something old is new again as we test Dutch ovens, give Brussels sprouts a bit of sprucing, and sample old Kentucky (bourbon, that is.) Our farm-to-table story highlights the great dishes being created in the Berkshires, and our pasta stories (both regular and gluten-free) will help you carbo-load as you get in the last of your hibernation. We chat with Michael Symon, and challenge the idea of stocking a wine cellar. We go green to show you greenhouse gardeners that laugh in the face of cold weather, and preservationist gardeners who are not only honoring the past but teaching the future.
So settle in, eat well, and we’ll see you in the Spring!
