A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_8964We came up to Vermont and couldn’t wait to share this place with friends.

IMG_8965As fellow foodies, we knew Hen of the Wood won’t disappoint them.

IMG_8966The summertime is so lovely here. When we arrive, our table is not ready, so we are shown out to the back patio.

IMG_8970There are a couple of tables out here, and some other folks waiting to be seated.

IMG_8971The view is pretty amazing.

IMG_8972It’s nice to be outside.

IMG_8975When we sit, the first thing we order is a cheese plate. What we have been anxiously waiting for since we booked the vacation! Ascutney Mountain, Landaff, Pawlet, Tarentaise, triple creme ($7 each) come plated with hazelnuts, preserves and these delicious maple crackers that we just can’t get enough of!

IMG_8976The pork sausage appetizer, $12, comes with polenta and a fried egg. Simply delicious. Love the presentation.

IMG_8977The lobster appetizer,  $14, comes with  pickled rhubarb & crispy ham. Really delicious and decadent, can’t get enough of that lobster!

IMG_8978We all pick the short rib dumplings special ($25). The meat is tender and flavorful and the dumplings melt in your mouth. It looks like a small portion, but by the time we are done with the main course we are stuffed.

IMG_8979I say stuffed, but there is always room for dessert.

IMG_8980It doesn’t look pretty, but the pot de creme ($8) was rich in flavor, but light and creamy. An excellent way to end the evening. Love the ambiance, the service was excellent and the food is exceptional. Make reservations well in advance is you are going to VT in the peak seasons – as the restaurant is small and reservations go quickly!
