weekends with yankee
Flora and Fauna

This week on Weekends with Yankee, we spotlight the flora and fauna of New England. Starting things off is a visit to Vermont's Shelburne Farms, a historic property on the shores of Lake Champlain where teams of farmers and food artisans raise Brown Swiss cows and make delicious cheeses from their milk. Next, we travel to New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee to connect with top Boston chef Brendan Pelley, who shares the story of how growing up at his family's cabin there shaped his cooking style-which he demonstrates with some delicious lake trout prepared over a campfire. Then it's off to Connecticut, where co-host Richard Wiese casts for trout with James Prosek, a fisherman, artist, and author who celebrates the beauty of this revered fish in his work. Back in the Test Kitchen, cohost and Yankee senior food editor Amy Traverso makes a simple but elegant orzo salad with smoked trout.
