Vermont Food Producers Make National News 

Side Dishes

In its July 8 “Cheap Eats” issue, New York magazine named an unlikely pastry one of this year’s best new doughnut in the Big Apple. Rockville Market Farm’s butternut-squash doughnut, made by baker Barbara Nedd, came in second on the list of eight, which included no less a pastry than Dominique Ansel’s oft-pirated lemon-maple Cronut.

How did the Starksboro farm’s treat end up on the list? Farmer Eric Rozendaal heads down to Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg each Saturday to sell lemonade; sausage, egg and arugula gorditas; and the doughnuts that writer Hugh Merwin praises for “their unusual ocher exterior and delicate flavor.” Vermonters can also get them on Saturdays — at the Burlington Farmers Market.

The apple-based aperitif Orleans and its creators, Deirdre Heekin of Barnard and Eleanor Leger of West Charleston, had their moment in the Wall Street Journal last week. In a trend piece entitled “American Aperitifs: New Takes on Old-School Drinks,” writer Sarah Karnasiewicz called Orleans “rosy and bold, like a third cousin of Campari with a tart berry edge.”

The original print version of this article was headlined "Food in Black and White."

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.
