In this episode of Weekends with Yankee
, we travel to Massachusetts to experience the unique and incredibly colorful tradition of cranberry harvesting, which the Gilmore family of South Carver has been doing for generations. Then, bring your appetites as we head to Portland, Maine, where we’ll take you inside some of our favorite restaurants in this food lover’s paradise. Last but not least, we go off the beaten path in Vermont to explore Greensboro, which Yankee
magazine editors call “the best little food town in New England,” and visit a cult brewer and a cheese maker that rank among America’s best. Back in her kitchen, co-host Amy Traverso spins out an ale and cheddar cheese dip that makes the most of these classic Vermont ingredients.
