A Grilled Lobster Recipe for Summer - Earth at Hidden Pond

But for Danielle and Justin Walker, the owners of the idyllic restaurant and farm, Earth at Hidden Pond, in Kennebunkport, it’s part of a rich family legacy. “Our son, Jackson, is the sixth generation to live on the farm, which was built in 1750,” Danielle, who manages the front of house, says. “When my father was 13, he’d ride his bike down to the cove and go lobstering.”

Her father, Ted Johnson, is now 70 and still goes out on his red lobster boat (which he built from scratch by hand and named Jessie Danielle, for his two daughters) a couple of days a week—and Justin, as the executive chef for the restaurant, uses everything he catches in the kitchen. “He could bring in 80 pounds or 280 pounds, but we’ll take it. One of the ways Justin likes to prepare it is split, grilled and brushed with curry butter and pickled lime (see the recipe). Mount Washington Auto Road.

A historic vacation destination for the rich and famous, the island has been wonderfully preserved and remains a must-visit spot. Just outside the park on the north side of Northeast Harbor is the Asticou Inn, one of the oldest and most prestigious inns on the island, retaining much of its classic character and charm over the years.

The first thing we heard from most of our friends and family after finding out about our upcoming wedding was either “where are you going to eat after the ceremony?”

Woodstock, VT - 11.14 - Map & Menu

Or “where are you going to honeymoon?”. I suppose that maintaining a travel and food site sets a certain expectation in this regard, so I think most people were surprised when we’d respond that we hadn’t really given the latter too much thought.

It’s easy to forget that the yearly trips Michael, Orvis, and I take to Vermont every August started as little more than a late summer work trip in 2012.

At the time, we had lived in New England for four years and still hadn’t been to Vermont. Since that first wonderful trip to the Green Mountain State, we’ve been back a number of times, at various points throughout the year, and continue to fall even more in love with the state, but it sure is hard to beat our summer visits to Vermont.

Southern Vermont - Map & Menu. Meredith and I often post about summer “blowing by” or life feeling too rushed and busy, so in an attempt to slow things down a bit, disconnect for just over a day, and take advantage of some of the precious remaining summer, we recently took a somewhat impromptu overnight trip to southern Vermont. The trip was just what we were looking for, and in under 30 hours, we had the chance to visit some picturesque New England towns, try some unbelievable meals, cheeses, and desserts, and relax by the pool on a Vermont hillside – not too shabby!

When I eat lobster, I take no prisoners. All that’s identifiable in the carnage left behind are the eyes, antennae, swimmeretes (those feathery appendages on the underside of the body), and dismembered carcass. Finished, I’m literally dripping in lobster juice and goo.

The only place for such a messy operation is a classic lobster shack, a sometimes rough-and-tumble operation that’s usually within sight and scent of the ocean. I’ve dined at lobster outposts from Kittery to Eastport. Some serve only lobster, others a full menu ranging from hot dogs to blueberry pie. 26 of Maine's most beautiful places (to see before you die) - mainetoday.

Out and about: mount desert island. – Reading My Tea Leaves – Slow, simple, sustainable living. We spent the first half of our trip to Maine exploring Mount Desert Island. There’s so much that’s lovely to see on the island that you hardly need a guide, but we made it back a few favorite spots we’d visited before and discovered a few new ones that I thought would be nice to share in this place. Special shoutout to my favorite internet friend and neighbor, Emily, for her amazing insider tips.
