Labor of Love

In this episode of Weekends with Yankee, Co-host Richard Wiese hikes New Hampshire's White Mountains in the company of the Ohut croos, O young men and women who pack food and supplies up steep trails to the famed rustic lodges along the Appalachian Trail. From there it's over to Grafton, Vermont, a quintessential New England village of covered bridges, white picket fences, and maple trees. The Grafton Village Cheese Company produces some of the best cheddars in the country, and we go behind the scenes to see how it's done. Then we jog north to taste some of the most sought-after bread in New England, made from local wheat that's milled on-site at Elmore Mountain Bread in Wolcott, Vermont. Back in her kitchen, Co-host Amy Traverso whips up some Vermont cheese gougres, an inspired starter for any meal.
