Happening at Claire's and Around Hardwick

From the Kitchen: Steven has a succulent lamb shank from Winding Brook Farm on the menu this week, marinated in garlic, grilled just a few minutes and braised in red wine from Shelburne Vineyards and Champlain Valley Cider. It’s served with Pete's red onions, which are caramelized to bring out their sweetness, and corn polenta from Butterworks Farms with a dash of Bayley Hazen Blue Cheese. Finish your dinner with a nutty crisp of apples and the last of the blueberries from storage.

Thursday Music: Join us in welcoming jazz pianist Andrew Moroz at 7:30 on April 16.

Neighbors & Friends: Wendy and Harry Besett at Vermont Glass Workshop in Hardwick are the talented couple who brought us our unique stemless wine glasses. They’re preparing for Vermont Open Studios in May and craft fairs as far away as St. Paul this weekend. Keep up with them at or become a fan of Vermont Glass Workshop on Facebook.

Up and Coming: To mark Earth Day, St. Mike’s journalism students will premier their documentary Food Life: from seed to shelf next Wednesday, April 22, at 8:00 pm in the Hoehl Center on campus. The documentary, which features Claire’s, Bill McKibben, David Zuckerman, and other Vermonters, traces the evolution of the American food system, from “faceless food” to localvore.
