Winter Wonder Begins With Food Here in the Kingdom


The Winter 2021 Menu Guide from NEK Eats



Tucked away in the Northeastern most portion of Vermont is a world of culinary delights just waiting to be discovered.

Though rural and remote, the Northeast Kingdom is home to many fantastic chefs, both professionally trained and self taught.

The region was built on agriculture and dairy through small farms that were dedicated to producing food. And, it is still that way! Farm to Table, Vermont cheeses, farm raised meat, Vermont beers and wines, Vermont spirits, all made right in the NEK have become staples on the menus of local restaurants.

As winter snows coat the fields and mountains, as green becomes a sparkling blanket of white, as hiking, swimming, and kayaking give way to snowmobiling, skiing, and sledding remember…

There is always a delicious meal to be found close by!

Planning a trip to Vermont? Or, doing a bit of local winter adventuring?

There’s plenty to do in the Kingdom from December through April, in all kinds of weather and no matter the temperature! From December through the New Year live music events, special meals, holiday gatherings, Ugly Sweater Parties, Karaoke, and Holiday festivities abound. And many of these events are held in local restaurants.

As January settles in, snow is the name of the game! From January through March you can find some of the best weather for winter fun. Fresh snow falls often, skiing is in full swing. Snowmobile trails are open (as long as the weather holds). Ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and winter carnivals fill the weeks. Then sugaring season begins bringing with it Maple events, open houses, sugar on snow parties, and…

More Snow!

And there’s always Ice Skating, fort building, sledding, snowman making, and snowball fights to fill in those free moments.

So if you’re in Vermont, and looking to enjoy one (or all) of these activities, there is no better place than here in the Northeast Kingdom.
