On this episode of Weekends with Yankee
, we join cohost Amy Traverso at the Thompson House Eatery in Jackson, New Hampshire, where husband-and-wife team Jeff and Kate Fournier are continuing the restaurant’s legacy as a landmark in the community. There, Amy helps Jeff whip up his famous watermelon steak, along with the house-special Brussels sprouts. Heading south to Potter Pond in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, cohost Richard Wiese meets Perry Raso, owner of Matunuck Oyster Farm and Bar. Perry is a leader in the shellfish aquaculture movement, growing delicious oysters while improving local water quality. Next, we visit Wiggly Bridge Distillery in York, Maine, where David Woods and his son, David Jr., create small-batch spirits in their handmade copper stills.
