The Guide

In the Travel section’s main feature, “Rites of Passage” (page 40), Yankee staff writers and contributors share their favorite traditions that mark the change of season in New England.

In the Home section’s main feature, “The New New England Heirlooms,” by Christie Matheson (page 52), Yankee highlights some of the region’s most exceptional artisans, who are creating prized masterpieces, guaranteed to be passed down from generation to generation. In “Inspired Ideas” (page 62), Terry John Woods shows readers how to make a rustic-looking coatrack out of old wooden shoe forms. And in Yankee’s “Antiques & Collectibles” column (page 64), Catherine Riedel writes about Plainville, Massachusetts’ Whiting & Davis, makers of mesh purses, which became genuine Art Deco sensations in the early 20th century.

In the Food section, Lisa Ekus-Saffer, who runs a media agency promoting chefs and their cookbooks, entertains her foodie friends at her 18th-century farmhouse (“Recipe for Entertaining,” page 66). Her guests feast on “Cumin- and Lemon-Scented Lamb Lollipops with Skordalia”; “Cold Asparagus Soup with Local Chevre”; “Wild-Salmon Roulades”; “Potato, Sorrel & Egg Salad”; and “Rhubarb-and-Mango Compote.” This issue’s “Best Cook in Town” (page 74) is Vermonter Marcia Maynard, who makes recipes inspired by her passion for maple sugaring. She and her husband run Cabot Hills Maple and sell certified organic maple syrup.
