Side Dishes

Each year, Santé Magazine,a national culinary trade rag published in Bennington, doles out awards to "outstanding" restaurants and resorts. This year's winners, announced in September, include three Vermont properties.

Christophe's on the Green in Vergennes won the "Innovative Restaurant" award for the New England region. This places the restaurant, which turns out unique-sounding dishes such as goose rillettes crostini and monkfish and crayfish flambée, in excellent company. Other honorees include New York City's highly touted davidburke & donatella, and - in the "Traditional" category - L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas.

The Reluctant Panther Inn and Restaurant in Manchester and The Inn at Weathersfield were listed, too - the former for its "Hotel/Resort Bar" and the latter for a commitment to sustainability.

Does "raw" cheese taste different from stuff made from pasteurized milk? Find out for yourself at The Inn at Shelburne Farms during an October 15 program called "Pasteurized vs. Raw: Myth and Reality."

After a seasonal buffet dinner, attendees will participate in a "blind tasting" of raw and "cooked" artisan cheeses. Jeff Roberts, author of The Atlas of American Artisan Cheese, will serve as master of ceremonies. Expect "lively" discussion about federal rules and regs to accompany the tasting. For reservations and info, call 985-8686.

foodie poll

How quickly do you judge a new restaurant?

  • If it's not good the first time I eat there, I won't go back.
  • I like to give new places a couple chances before I file a verdict
  • I try to take each dining experience on its own merits — all restaurants have off days!
  • I like to wait a while before trying new spots — so they can work out the kinks.
  • If a restaurant isn't perfect by its first anniversary, time to call it quits.
