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."
