the rest of the New England potluck trip

Danny and Lu on Cape Cod_

We’re sitting in the home of our friends Tamar Haspel and Kevin Flaherty, on Cape Cod. This morning, they took us on their boat, out to their oyster farm, Barnstable Oyster. Last night, after we pulled into their driveway after 5 hours of driving the minivan down from the east coast of Maine, they greeted us with plates of fresh oysters and a sharp mignonette. These are our kind of people.

And this was after two days in Vermont, holding a potluck with good people in a barn, then visiting Danny’s culinary school and King Arthur Flour, and then two amazing days in Maine. (We have fallen in love with Maine.) We’ll share all the photos and stories as soon as we can, but we’re on a bit of a whirlwind with too little downtime to process everything here.

Besides, we have updates on potlucks in these remaining days of this incredible trip. We can’t wait to meet more of you soon.

September 23nd, RHODE ISLAND POTLUCK, 6:30 to 8 pm

We were set to have our potluck tonight at Blackbird Farm in Smithfield. If you are planning on heading there, change your plans. Unfortunately, the head of the farm had a family medical emergency last night and won’t be able to host us. Fortunately, someone wonderful came forward and offered us her home instead!

Thank you, Brandy McKinnon.

We want to send out a huge thank you and acknowledgment of the good companies that have come forward to sponsor this American Road Trip Potluck Tour for us all.

Attune Foods makes some of our favorite foods in the world, including their new quinoa-chia cereal, which we will be debuting on this tour. They do things right. 

Bakery on Main makes great gluten-free foods, including good granolas and bars. We’ll definitely take some of their instant oatmeal packets with us, for a good breakfast on the road.
