A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_8821On our way to Vermont, we always stop at Simon Pearce. It’s about halfway and what a lovely place to stop and stretch our legs.

IMG_8822They don’t take reservations for lunch, but we arrived on the later side on Friday afternoon and there isn’t much of a crowd. A quick refreshing drink to start off a great vacation!

IMG_8823We all split the cheese plate with grapes marinated in orange juice. A little funky, but they’re tasty. The cheeses don’t disappoint.

IMG_8824Not wanting to eat something heavy and then get into the car, I order the prosciutto and melon salad, an interesting take on a classic – the melon has been pureed and chilled and added at the bottom of the plate.

IMG_8825The sesame seared chicken does not disappoint my friend – spicy apricot dipping sauce, pickled ginger, noodle salad makes this dish sweet and tender.

IMG_8827For dessert, we opt for the white chocolate mousse cake with raspberry puree. Delish! Love the cookie crust on this.

IMG_8826We also share the s’more with chocolate crème, graham crust, toasted meringue. Interesting – not in my top favorites of dessert, but tasty none the less.

IMG_8829After lunch we head downstairs to take a look from the porch that overlooks the water and catch a glimpse of one of the artisans blowing glass. It’s pretty toasty down here as the oven gets crazy hot, but it is an amazing process.

IMG_8834I can’t say enough good things about this place, it’s one of our favorites.
