The February issue of Food & Wine magazine gives a nod to the localvore movement, by featuring two chef-advocates on either side of the country. Vermont's own Jeremy Silansky, chef de cuisine at American Flatbread in Waitsfield, shares his recipes for watercress salad with beets and roasted-garlic crostini; butternut squash soup with apple and smoked cheddar; and red wine-braised lamb shanks. No mention of pizza . . .
Beginning January 15, http://www.7nvt.com/7n/admin/listing.htm?establishment_id=587>Hen of the Wood in Waterbury will feature "Chalkboard Menu Mondays." At the slow start of the week, Chefs Eric Warnstedt and Craig Tresser will whip up entrées for under $20 that "celebrate our local farms and sustainable agriculture," according to Warnstedt. Patrons will also get a special deal on carafes of wine.
