A Guest Blog From the Berkshires of Massachusetts

Khalil Hymore, an Associate Food Editor for Everyday Food offered a guest blog from a trip he took to the Berkshires in Massachusetts this past summer.  I have actually spent a good deal of time in the Berkshires, as I used to have a country house there and it is, indeed, a lovely place to be.  Enjoy Khalil’s posting and also try his turkey and white-bean chili recipe in the October issue of Everyday Food.  You won’t be disappointed!

The Berkshire region in Western Massachusetts is a wonderful weekend escape for many busy New Yorkers, like myself.  The lush and rugged landscape is great place to enjoy many fun outdoor activities.  I recently spent a long weekend there, in the town of Great Barrington, with my husband, daughter, and cousins, hiking, berry picking, and of course, cooking!  We even visited an organic dairy farm and got to hang out with some newborn calves—a big treat for us city slickers!
