Local Food: From sweet to hot, peppers add complex flavors and depth to almost any dish - even chocolate! They are also one of Steven's favorite end-of-summer vegetables, starting to peak in his own kitchen garden as well farms throughout northern Vermont. Look for a little more heat, a hint of spice, some earthy crispness and depth in soups and sauces over the next few weeks. Some dishes will celebrate the pepper, others might add just a hint for a crisp bite, and of course there will be items on the menu without peppers.
Back to (After) School: Bar service, coffee and sweets are available every day at Claire's except Wednesday, along with free wifi. The perfect place for an afterschool meeting, to catch up on homework or a research project, or to just talk with friends.
Thursday Music: Jeremy Raboin is back, performing at 8 pm. Check out his distinct blend of rock and folk with a bit of country, brought together by his soulful clear voice. His music is available on myspace.
