martha’s summer

JULY AUGUST “There’s nothing better than justpicked sweet corn. I grow many different varieties, including ‘Silver Queen’ and ‘Luscious’. I freeze the cooked kernels so I can enjoy them throughout the year.” —Martha FREEZING FRESH CORN 1. On a small baking sheet, stand a corn cob on one end. With a sharp knife, slice downward on all sides, keeping blade against ear to remove as many kernels as possible. Repeat with remaining corn. 2. Heat a large skillet over medium; add 1 tablespoon unsalted butter for each ear. When it’s melted and foamy, add corn; cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Spread on baking sheet; let cool.

ON THE ROAD THE DEEP SOUTH To create the menu for his new Seattle restaurant, JuneBaby, chef Edouardo Jordan rediscovered his roots. The Florida native drove through Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Alabama to fully experience foods he grew up eating. “The moments that stand out the most didn’t happen in restaurants,” Jordan says. At McLeod Plantation in South Carolina, “it all came together for me. I was able to take a step back from food to respect the history of the people who grew it.” Back on the West Coast, he’s channeling all that—plus flavors from his key stops, below—into every dish. junebabyseattle.com Nashville The Prince’s Hot Chicken line is worth it. “It’ll make your eyes water in the best way.” princeshot chicken.com Asheville In a former skating rink, Buxton Hall BBQ “does open pit right.”…

open season

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, my parents had a different idea of a vacation. While most of my friends were flying offto Florida or a far-flung beach, the four of us were climbing onto my family’s small boat and sailing around Lake Michigan. Come August, my father loved nothing more than leaving land—and his corporate job—behind. He’d chart a new course each year, and we’d pack the tiny galley with provisions for several days. On our first trip, we hugged the Wisconsin coast, docking in new-to-us towns, anchoring in bays overnight, swimming, fishing, and exploring. As we developed our sea legs (and I stopped getting seasick), we’d head the boat farther away each summer, often crossing the lake, tacking up the Michigan side and going clear into Canada. It wasn’t…

a celebration of acadia

Teach and Inspire Celebrating Acadia FROM MARTHA ALTHOUGH I AM A RELATIVE newcomer to Mount Desert Island, having purchased my house on the edge of Acadia National Park in 1997, I feel as if I have always been there. Like most of the homeowners on this magnificent island, I have become totally enamored of everything the place has to offer: the park, the woods, the moss, the sea, the granite cliffs and outcroppings, the ponds, the climate, the views, the other islands, the abundant seafood, and the diverse outdoor activities. Last year, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of Acadia with a series of events that ran the gamut, from lectures to cocktail parties and dinners to gala evenings, and even a four-day weekend of carriage rides chaired by my friend Gail Clark to benefit…
