Pillow Talk from The Stanton House Inn

I’m going to cow to the demands of guests visiting us here at the Stanton House Inn and admit that yes, there are a lot of opportunities to pick apples here in Connecticut. I admit I’ve done it more than a few times, and it is a pleasant way to spend an Autumn afternoon here in Connecticut.

Get ready to be sick and tired of apples after eating and buying as many as you can. Find someone handy or a hipster to make apple sauce for you.

I must warn you, however, that like maple syrup tapping, it’s a bit of a drive from Greenwich. Most of the land down this way has been turned into expensive mansions, so you need to drive a ways from our environs.

OmNomCT

We’ve come across plenty of people in the food world who amaze us. Chefs whose culinary creativity blow our minds, oenophiles whose brains are virtually wine encyclopedias, brewers that can taste the slightest variation in their brews, and people who can give you a killer restaurant recommendation (with corresponding menu item) to any city in the whole frickin United States in less than 3 seconds flat. That last one describes the one, the only, Adam Richman. In terms of knowing all the great spots to eat across America, he’s a legend. From taking down legendary meals in Man vs. Food, to searching for the best sandwiches in Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America, to traveling across the country to find the best grub in The Traveler’s Guide to Life, it’s tough to find a more knowledgable dude.
