Yankee Magazine's September/October 75th Anniversary Special Issue
The Travel section’s main feature, “The Top 25 Foliage Towns in New England,” by Michael Blanding and the editors of Yankee Magazine (page 40), reaches its conclusions based on hard data (in 14 categories), opinion, and lots of travel time. Fall in New England is more than just beautiful leaves. It encompasses a variety of experiences, from apple picking and browsing farmers’ markets to visiting unique shops and sampling great food. Let the debates begin!
The Home section travels back in time with “House Redux,” by editor-at-large Ian Aldrich (page 62). In 1950, Yankee presented its first “House for Sale,” a rambling old home in Groton, Massachusetts. Sixty years later, we revisit the property to see what’s become of it. In Yankee’s “Antiques & Collectibles” column, Catherine Riedel writes about the smooth lines and striking color of Heywood-Wakefield’s “Modern” furniture pieces, which have graced many New England homes since the height of their popularity in the mid-20th century.
In the Food section, Yankee highlights local ingredients and good home cooking, which have never been out of style. “Everything Old Is New Again,” by Yankee’s food editor Annie B. Copps, with additional research and reporting by Alex Tillotson (page 76), includes a sampling of classic New England dishes from 75 years of Yankee Magazine. The story previews Yankee’s Best New England Recipes “bookazine,” on sale October 5, 2010. Also in the Food section, this issue’s “Homegrown” column, by Annie B. Copps, focuses on rich and hearty beets–root veggies that hold a wealth of earthy goodness. Plus, in “Best Cook In Town,” home chef Beth Richardson’s passion for preserves lets her family and friends enjoy the bounty of her garden year-round.
