Crystal Brook Farm & Goat Cheese

If you want to see baby goats frolic through a field and learn how goat cheese is made, this is the place. The owner, Ann Starband, is a truly knowledgeable guide and can explain in detail each part of the process. Looking back at the visit a few friends and I made recently, I wish I had listened more; we spent most of the time enamored with all the goats!

Sailor Style Mussels

Seriously plump, steamed mussels in a broth that will have you looking for the whole loaf of bread.

Moules Marinières: Sailor Style Mussels in Wine Broth

After ordering my first bowl of Moules Marinières (French for mussels cooked in wine) with frites, I was confronted with the lovely task of slowing down to pick each mussel from its shell, forcing me to savor every bite. Once I got to the broth I felt like the mussels I had just enjoyed were merely jettisoned to reveal a bowl of sea-salty, creamy, wine broth that begged for dipping bread.

Roasted Garlic and Cauliflower Soup with Seared Scallops

SPOILER: This recipe calls for 2 whole heads of garlic and 4 pieces of bacon. Having said that, roasting the garlic mellows out its flavor. Instead it’s softer, sweeter, and nuttier. Pair this with the flavors of roasted cauliflower, the nutty tones of seared scallops, and some bacon, and you’ve got yourself a rich and delicious soup.

New England Fried Clams

The lobster roll’s sleazy cousin.

New England Fried Clams

Crunchy, salty, whole-bellied fried clams are New England’s guilty pleasure. There’s something irresistibly dirty about the mushy bellies inside the fried crunch of the outer batter. Taking a bite is like a first kiss; don’t think about the consequences.

Seared Scallops with Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato

I used to think the scallop bonbon was wrapped in bacon with a dollop of maple syrup*.

seared scallops with roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato confit

The sweet and nutty flavors of scallops are instead naturally drawn out with tomatoes and smooth roasted garlic. You’ll be popping these in your mouth like candy. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

*Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

These guys are covered in a rich mushroom cream sauce and topped with Gruyere cheese. Sage adds some nutty flavors to this savory appetizer.

Broiled Mussels with Mushroom Cream Sauce

My Midwestern roots finally came out with this recipe; I couldn’t hold back the cheese and cream any longer. People will say cheese shouldn’t be added to seafood, but this is my defense. The Gruyere pairs with the briny taste of the mussels, while the cream and sage sauce richens the dish and levels out the salt.
