Side Dishes: Leftover Food News

It was a sweet surprise for the staffers at Lake Champlain Chocolates, LLC., when they learned the company would be featured in Chocolate Celebration, a special, cocoa-rific edition of Cooking with Paula Deen. The two-page spread features pictures and a blurb about the company's history.


Craving al fresco eating? The Shelburne Farms Farm Cart will be opening for the season on May 10.

Like last year, the mobile resto will be serving it up from 11:30 to 3:30 daily. According to the property's food-systems coordinator, Phoebe Garfinkel, the menu will include "market garden salads," grilled cheese sandwiches and a seasonal panino of the day. There will also be a main dish du jour as well as flatbread pizza on Fridays.

Homegrown mesclun isn't the only green thing at the cart: All disposables are compostable, even the straws. To further reduce waste, Garfinkel explains, staffers will be mixing up iced tea, lemonade and seasonal smoothies in place of the bottled drinks offered last year.
