Voted one of the top 50 US restaurants by Gourmet Magazine, Arrows Restaurant is in an 18th century farmhouse overlooking prized flower, herb amd vegetable gardens on the edge of dense woods, just minutes from the rocky Maine coast. Acclaimed for their inventive, seasonal cuisine, service and old-world ambiance, Arrows incorporates their homegrown herbs and vegetables into magnificent creations inspired by Clark and Mark's international travels. For the garden salad at Arrows, they use whatever is best in the garden at the time. Herbs, field greens and even flowers have different flavors that will take a salad of simple lettuce from a monchromatic experience to the level of a rich, flavor tapestry.
The Burning Tree

One of our favorite restaurants in Maine is The Burning Tree, quietly nested in Otter Creek just south of bustling Bar Harbor. Owners Allison Martin and Elmer Beal specialize in delicious fresh seafood creatively prepared (like crab au gratin and fresh fillet of flounder dusted with ground sage and almonds in a heavenly cream sauce), and vegetables from their own organic garden. Chef Allison shared this special salad recipe with us.
While we are not avid football fans, we do enjoy making a special menu for the Super Bowl and making a winter-doldrum-breaker night of it. It’s almost always a cold, blustery night in northwest Connecticut. It’s fun to look forward to a roaring fire in the fireplace, special bites and drinks while we watch the half time show and the commercials with similarly inclined friends. Here, we tried to keep our New Year’s resolutions alive with a twist on buffalo wings. If you prefer, you can switch the grilled chicken tenders out for grilled jumbo shrimp. Or, get really wild and serve both.

This terrific cookbook offers selection tips, preparation instructions and hundreds of recipes for wonderful vegetable dishes. A lovely dish, this recipe captures some of the best flavors of summer in one light salad. For the best eye-pleasing results, use a mix of green and yellow wax beans. Serve with plenty of bread to sop up the juices from the salad.
Garlic croutons are awesome with Grilled Romaine, floating in Cream of Potato-Leek Soup or a top a classic iceberg wedge salad. They are so easy to make and so much better (and less expensive) than anything you could buy.
