Winter Comfort Food

VERMONT: Shepherd's Pie

Quechee is known best for the nearby Quechee Gorge—"Vermont's Grand Canyon"(ahem)—and for the legendary Simon Pearce Restaurant. Originally opened in 1985 as the Glassblower's Cafe, the restaurant is part of the Simon Pearce glassblowing factory downstairs. An airy dining room is perched high above the rushing waterfall that powers the glassworks furnaces, and has large windowed walls that look out over Quechee's covered bridge. Pearce himself is Irish, and his kitchen offers such homeland comfort-food specialties as soda bread scones and Ballymaloe brown bread, beef and Guinness stew, and an unspeakably delicious shepherd's pie made from local grass-fed beef and topped with a savory cheese-enriched crust.
