“Weekends with Yankee” Episode 502: Common Ground

In this episode of Weekends with Yankee, Co-host Amy Traverso heads to Siena Farms in Sudbury, Massachusetts to experience the best fall produce New England has to offer. Amy meets well-known farmer Chris Kurth, whose crops are a source of inspiration for his wife, Ana Sortun, the James Beard Award-winning chef-owner of Boston restaurants Sarma, Oleana, and Sofra. Amy and Ana prepare a fresh-from-the-garden meal of crispy Macomber turnip and potato latke and serve it up with apple amba and maple labne, an unusual twist to a classic dish. Moving south, Co-host Richard Wiese heads to West Cornwall, Connecticut, where he makes some new furry friends at Country Quilt Llama Farm. Richard feeds these gentle animals who then guide him on a walk down a picture-perfect trail. Back in her kitchen, Amy turns another fall veggie into a surprising and delightful treat, Glazed Chocolate Potato Doughnut Muffins.
