In the Kitchen With “Weekends with Yankee”

Apple, Cheddar, and Caramelized Onion Pastry Bites

In “Back to Our Roots,” Amy Traverso is in Boston following in the footsteps of culinary legend Julia Child. Back in the kitchen, she pays homage to Julia by making these sweet and savory Apple, Cheddar, and Caramelized Onion Pastry Bites.

Glazed Chocolate Potato Doughnut Muffins

In “Common Ground,” Amy heads to Sudbury, Massachusetts, to celebrate fall produce at Siena Farms with owner Chris Kurth and his wife, noted Boston chef Ana Sortun, who shows Amy how to prepare a fresh-from-the-garden meal. Back in the kitchen, Amy bakes up an inventive treat, Glazed Chocolate Potato Doughnut Muffins.

Amy Traverso’s Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings (Malfatti)

In “Homegrown,” Amy joins Douglass Williams, chef-owner of Mida in Boston, on a shopping trip for locally stone-ground organic flour and the perfect bottle of wine for dinner. Back in the kitchen, Amy makes Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings, a favorite family dish inspired by their meal.

Rhode Island-Style Clear Clam Chowder

In “Only In New England,” Amy learns about the shipbuilding legacy of Essex, Massachusetts, and makes a stop at Woodman’s of Essex, birthplace of the fried clam. Back in the kitchen, Amy showcases fresh seafood by making Rhode Island–Style Clear Clam Chowder using a favorite easy recipe from Matunuck Oyster Bar in South Kingstown.

Blueberry Buckle

In “An Eye For Beauty,” we check out the Maine winery Bluet Winery, which is transforming the state’s iconic wild blueberries into sparkling wine. Back in the kitchen, Amy uses Maine blueberries to make a classic Blueberry Buckle. All videos created by Dylan Leavitt/Studio Dylan.
