weekends with yankee

WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE is a 13-part travel and lifestyle series named for the long-running publication enjoyed by readers across America for more than 80 years. With New England among the nation's top tourist destinations, the magazine-style program takes viewers on an insider's exploration of the cities, countryside locales and far-flung places in the quaint and scenic region. The series is hosted by Richard Wiese, (Born to Explore) , an Emmy Award-winning TV personality, author and explorer who has traveled to all seven continents, participated in two expeditions to Antarctica, and cross-country skied to the North Pole. Amy Traverso, a senior food editor at Yankee magazine who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay, joins Richard as co-host. She highlights recipes, local flavors and the sense of community that make up the regions' food and dining scene. WEEKENDS WITH YANKEE offers an "all-access" behind-the-scenes pass to the unique attractions that define the region, and the hidden New England that only locals know.

In this episode of Weekends with Yankee, co-host Amy Traverso is in the White Mountains, embarking on the coziest and most delicious kind of adventure: an inn-to-inn cookie tour. With Amy leading the way, we start at Snowvillage Inn in Eaton, New Hampshire; hop across the border to the Admiral Peary Inn in Fryeburg, Maine; and wrap things up at the Cranmore Inn in North Conway, New Hampshire. We get a taste of the holidays as we join in the excitement - and the big job - of baking thousands of cookies for this popular annual event. Next, we're in Montpelier, Vermont, where guest host and Yankee senior editor Ian Aldrich meets up with endurance athlete Mirna Valerio, also known as the Mirnavator. Mirna first gained attention for her blog, Fat Girl Running, and has written pieces for newspapers and magazines, as well as her own book, to advocate for diversity in the outdoors and to celebrate athletes of all shapes, sizes, and abilities. She shares how a Black, plus-sized Brooklynite found her way to - and a community in -Vermont, and takes Ian on a hike on one of her favorite trails. Finally, co-host Richard Wiese is in Portland, Maine, to discover how Sea Bags is giving new life to old sails. From a warehouse holding thousands of weathered sails to the waterfront shop where the sails are meticulously sewn into one-of-a-kind totes, we see how this sustainability-focused company embodies the essence of Maine.
