This week on Weekends with Yankee, we explore New England in wintertime, a season of snowy adventures and breathtaking beauty. We start off with a visit to historic Lexington, Massachusetts, the town where the first shots of the Revolutionary War forever changed the course of this country. While there, we cook up a New England artisan dinner with chef Stacy Cogswell at the Inn at Hastings Park, and put spotlight on some of the regional designers and food makers who represent New England craftsmanship and entrepreneurial spirit. Next, it's up north we go, to Nestlenook Farm in Jackson, New Hampshire, for a journey back to the winters of yesteryear on a horse-drawn sleigh. And with the holiday season in mind, we wrap up with some suggestions for great New England food gifts that can be made quickly and easily in the kitchen.

WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE is a 13-part travel and lifestyle series named for the long-running publication enjoyed by readers across America for more than 80 years.
With New England among the nation's top tourist destinations, the magazine-style program takes viewers on an insider's exploration of the cities, countryside locales and far-flung places in the quaint and scenic region.
The series is hosted by Richard Wiese, (Born to Explore) , an Emmy Award-winning TV personality, author and explorer who has traveled to all seven continents, participated in two expeditions to Antarctica, and cross-country skied to the North Pole.
Amy Traverso, a senior food editor at Yankee magazine who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay, joins Richard as co-host.
She highlights recipes, local flavors and the sense of community that make up the regions' food and dining scene.
WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE offers an "all-access" behind-the-scenes pass to the unique attractions that define the region, and the hidden New England that only locals know.
