By Courtney DiFiore As a symphony of color fills the Green Mountains, the temperature begins to drop, foreshadowing the coming winter months. I begin to anticipate cool mornings and frost covered greens on the golf course but this year I’ve been duped!

The road we walk is one big hill and as fate would have it, the way home is all uphill. We walk or I should … Continue reading Furry Fitness
By Myra Foster. I don’t know about you, but Brussels sprouts have never been among my favorites. Until today. Caramelized on a Vermont Country Grillstone during a demonstration today at The Full Palette, this formerly suspicious vegetable will be the star of my harvest table.
