In this episode of Weekends with Yankee, Co-host Amy Traverso heads to Siena Farms in Sudbury, Massachusetts to experience the best fall produce New England has to offer. Amy meets well-known farmer Chris Kurth, whose crops are a source of inspiration for his wife, Ana Sortun, the James Beard Award-winning chef-owner of Boston restaurants Sarma, Oleana and Sofra. Amy and Ana prepare a fresh-from-the-garden meal of crispy Macomber turnip and potato latke and serve it up with apple amba and maple labne, an unusual twist to a classic dish. Moving south, Co-host Richard Wiese heads to West Cornwall, Connecticut, where he makes some new furry friends at Country Quilt Llama Farm. Richard feeds these gentle animals who then guide him on a walk down a picture-perfect trail. Back in her kitchen, Amy turns another fall veggie into a surprising and delightful treat, Glazed Chocolate Potato Doughnut Muffins.

About Weekends with Yankee:

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.
