Imagine squash ravioli with rosemary cream or prosciutto-wrapped sea scallops accompanying this fresh, zesty and healthy cabbage slaw. By her own report, Chef Allison is on a bit of a cabbage kick these days. This recipe is really good and easy to prepare. For reservations from mid-June to Columbus Day, call (207) 288-9331.

            Vegetable "Spaghetti"

              Here's a new twist on mixed vegetables. It works with any vegetables that can be cut into long strips, but I like to use ones of contrasting colors. This winter version works well as a side dish served with meat, and is a good starch substitute. (A summer version might combine yellow summer squash, red peppers, green peppers and onions.)

            Vegetable Tower

              Nestled in the foothills of the Absaroka Mountains in Montana’s Paradise Valley, Chico Hot Springs Resort is a rustic oasis where we floated in steaming hot springs, and feasted in their quaint 100-year old dining room. The service was impeccable and the food divine. Most of the produce was harvested from their own organic garden and geothermal greenhouses. We so enjoyed their signature Fennel Breadsticks, Vegetable Tower and irresistible Orange Flambe. If you can’t visit soon, you must get “A Montana Table: Recipes from Chico Hot Springs Resort” by Seabring Davis (ThreeForks, an imprint of the Globe Pequot Press).
