The Summer Edition: Yankee Magazine's July/August 2011 Issue
DUBLIN, New Hampshire (July/August 2011)—Yankee Magazine‘s July/August 2011 issue, on newsstands June 28, features classic summer experiences in New England: hidden swimming holes, miles of beaches in Rhode Island, summertime at the lake, the rippling cry of a loon, harvest-to-table meals, and the simplicity of cooking with locally grown vegetables.
“I think we’ve packed every bit of summer into the pages of Yankee‘s July/August issue, except perhaps a tube of sunscreen,” says editor Mel Allen. “A time where life happens outdoors, this is also the season for which locavores wait so patiently. The earth is warm, and the produce we eat doesn’t need to travel more than a few miles from local farms to our plates.”
