Side Dishes

Two Montpelier victuals received recent nods in the national press. A Montréal reader of Bon Appétit wrote the magazine to share that she “had the most amazing Portuguese eggs at Kismet in Montpelier, Vt.” She asked if the editors could help her recreate the dish — and they obliged with a recipe.


In an unlikely pairing, Three Penny Taproom was immortalized in the pages of Redbook — but not for its beer. In the article, called “39 Trending Cocktails We Love,” the magazine profiled the tavern’s Montpelier Mule, a blend of lemon vodka, ginger liqueur, ginger ale and a few other ingredients. The article paraphrases bartender Jake Jamieson as saying that “The Montpelier Mule is a little different from the classic Moscow Mule, just like Montpelier is slightly off-kilter from your usual capital city.”


This Saturday at Burlington’s Intervale Center, the Vermont Community Garden Network will host Feast for the Gardens, a fundraiser that brings together live music, apps and dinner from nika, Crop Bistro & Brewery, Guild Fine Meats and Half Pint Farm. Augmenting the fare will be an unusual beer brewed for the party by Zero Gravity Craft Brewery — one flavored with carrots, blue Hubbard squash, sweet gale and herbs harvested from the Intervale. Tickets are $80 and available through
