In this issue you’ll find:
• A main house feature by writer Laura Perras and photographer John Mitchell about a charming Greek Revival home in northernmost New York State, which was built in 1862 and christened by its current owners with a name that tidily sums up their 20-year experience living there. “Based on the location of our house on Chazy Landing, and our fondness for it and its history,” wrote Perry Kurtz, “we decided to give it the name ‘Happy Landing,’ a pleasant conclusion to a long journey.”
• A fascinating look by Robert Pelletier into the history of lace curtains in the United States, combined with some practical tips on the display, care and cleaning for any lace curtains you may already have in, or be considering to purchase for, your home.
• Gardening maven Dr. Leonard Perry with a colorful way to brighten up the dark winter season: cut tulips.
• A story written and illustrated by Kathleen Recchia on a Lake Placid restaurant whose original approach to everything from tacos to sushi to mac ‘n’ cheese is putting a new spin on classic comfort food.
PLUS, Wine Traveler Chris Fasolino on an “ungrafted” version of Chile’s signature red wine; a Carriage House recipe from Chef Curtiss Hemm for making fresh ricotta cheese; and the second and last installment of Richard Frost’s rediscovery of Cuba.
