Local Food: With all the snow that's finally falling, nothing will chase the chill away like a piping hot pot pie. Filled with a variety of earthy root vegetables including potatoes, carrots, and rutabagas, a splash of Shelburne Vineyard's Cayuga wine, and topped with a buttery, flaky crust made with cornmeal from Butterworks Farm, you can add to Steven's vegetarian pot pie with tofu from Vermont Soy, or turkey from Agape Hill Farm. This homey dish is a great way to take the bite out of a frigid day.

New Year's Eve is just around the corner and we'd love to celebrate with you at Claire's. Dinner reservations available from 5-9, and Rachael Rice and the Cosmic Americans will begin at 10:00 and play through the New Year. It promises to be a fun filled evening. Make your reservation today.

Celebrate the Season: There is still time to plan a holiday party with your friends at work or a family celebration. We can work with you for many different types of events, and our gift certificates are a popular gift that your loved ones can enjoy all year. We donate $10 to the NOFA Farm Share Program for each purchase of $100 in gift certificates for the Holidays.

Around the Galaxy: Thanks to everyone who came to enjoy our Judith Jones event last Tuesday. We were lucky to get a few more copies of Judith's book, The Pleasures of Cooking for One from our friends at Norwich Bookstore. You can also find other books from past Our Kitchen Bookshelf events that make great gifts for the food lover and cooks on your list. Our extended holiday hours give you more time to shop before dinner at Claire's - details on the web at

Music Notes: New to Vermont and Sterling College, folk singer/songwriter Chris Dorman joins us Thursday at 7:00.
