Episode 207: By the Shore

This week on Weekends with Yankee, we spend an idyllic summer day on the shores of Cape Cod and stop in at the Chatham Bars Inn, named a 2017 Yankee Editors’ Pick as “Best Family Lodging” in the state. There, we experience the ultimate farm-to-table dinner, featuring local seafood and an array of vegetables just picked from the hotel’s own farm. Then cohost Richard Wiese heads to Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay for a surfing lesson, and learns why there’s such surprisingly good wave action in New England. Lastly, it’s into the woods to forage mushrooms with chef Evan Mallett, multiple James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef in the Northeast and co-owner of the Black Trumpet in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Back in the Test Kitchen, cohost and Yankee senior food editor Amy Traverso cooks up roasted carrots with herbed yogurt sauce – yum!
