“The Restorer” — by Ian Aldrich (page 96): Maine resident Jon Wilson, founder of WoodenBoat magazine, has committed himself to a new career: supporting survivors of violent crime by facilitating meetings between them and their offenders.

The Guide

In the Travel section’s main feature, “Fresh Tracks to Cozy Inns” (page 36), writer David Goodman explores the delights of Vermont’s 300-mile Catamount Trail as he travels on cross-country skis by day and relaxes in cozy inns by night.

In the Home section’s main feature, “You Can Go Home Again,” by Ian Aldrich (page 46), artist Edie Vonnegut, Kurt Vonnegut’s daughter, settles into a renovated barn on the Barnstable, Massachusetts, property where she spent her childhood. In “New England’s Finest” (page 52), contributing editor Christie Matheson discovers beautiful wares crafted by the region’s artisans. And in Yankees “Antiques & Collectibles” column (page 54), Catherine Riedel writes about Waltham pocket watches — functional and beautiful timepieces dating back to late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In the Food section, Yankee‘s own Annie B. Copps praises the braise, a slow-cooking method that uses a combination of moist and dry heat to create flavorful and hearty culinary masterpieces (page 56). Recipes include: Maple, Apple, and Onion?Smothered Port Chops; Asian-Flavored Short Ribs; Classic Beef Brisket; Braised Fennel and Leeks; and Chicken Paprikash. This issue’s “Best Cook in Town” (page 64) is Provincetown, Massachusetts’ Ruth O’Donnell, famous for her Portuguese kale soup, which has nourished generations of her family and friends. And in the “Homegrown” column (page 68), “These Shrimps Are Real Shrimps” features Pandalus borealis, the Northern shrimp, a delicate, delectable variety available in Maine during the winter.
