Home to artisan bakers, organic farmers, skilled cheese-makers, expert and creative chefs, Vermont is well-advanced when it comes to sustainable, organic and local farm to restaurant cooperatives. Offering tasty dishes using Cheddar cheese, ramps, goat milk, and apples, Vermont is also well known for its maple syrup, which is used in dishes such as baked beans and rhubarb pie. Perhaps Chef Doug Paine says it best, "Vermont cuisine is rooted in tradition but not bound by it. Vermont cuisine is expressive, creative and independent, but also honest and humble. Vermont cuisine is crafted with the highest sense of quality but not afraid to be rough around the edges."
