  • Against the Grain Guten Free Discover Gay Brattleboro Vermont Attractions Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern VermontATG’s Cookbook: AGAINST THE GRAIN COOKBOOK: ATG Co-owner Nancy Cain came to gluten-free cooking simply enough: Her teenage son was diagnosed with celiac disease. After trying ready-made baking mixes and finding the results rubbery and tasteless, she pioneered gluten-free foods made entirely from natural ingredients–no xanthan or guar gums or other mystery chemical additives allowed. That led her to adapt many of her family’s favorite recipes, including their beloved pizzas, pastas, and more, to this real food technique. In Against the Grain, Nancy finally shares 200 groundbreaking recipes for achieving airy, crisp breads, delicious baked goods, and gluten-free main dishes. For any of these cookies, cakes, pies, sandwiches, and casseroles, you use only natural ingredients such as buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, and ripe fruits and vegetables. Whether you’re making Potato Rosemary Bread, iced Red Velvet Cupcakes, Lemon-Thyme-Summer Squash Ravioli, or Rainbow Chard and Kalamata Olive Pizza, you’ll be able to use ingredients already in your pantry or easily found at your local supermarket. With ample information for gluten-free beginners and 100 colorful photographs, this book is a game changer for gluten-free households everywhere.

Guest Reviews

“Relaxed and renewed at Frog Meadow Farm”

This is my second visit to Frog Meadow. I attended a yoga retreat in February (led by the amazing Colby Smith.) I loved Frog Meadow so much, that I wanted to share it with my husband, so we headed up to the mountain for a few days. (From NYC’s Upper West Side, 3.5 hours.) We received a big, warm welcome from Scott and Dave and staff. It was like homecoming with friends!

First off, the house and property are beautiful and impeccably maintained. The house is incredibly warm, inviting, masculine, but not without a sense of humor. The rooms are beautiful, substantial, comfortable and very clean. The accommodations are so cozy and restful that afternoon nap in your, room, the living room in the hammock or outside by the hot tub should be required.

Speaking of the hot tub, the wood burning hot tub, is a unique and relaxing way to take in the amazing views of property and get to know your fellow guests. Lots of laughs, and good times with guys from all over. So relaxing!

Speaking of relaxing, do not miss the opportunity to spend time on Dave’s massage table. He is a master of his craft. He is skilled, intuitive, strong and gentle. You will leave the massage studio relaxed and refreshed…and ready for that nap!

Speaking of Dave, he makes a mean Vermont country breakfast. Everything is fresh, delicious and substantial. The breakfast table is covered with great food and the room is filled with talk and laughter as all the guys share war stories from their lives or their adventures in the neighboring towns.

Speaking of towns, Frog Meadow Farm is right outside of Brattleboro. We had great meals, did some shopping, some sight seeing and really got to enjoy the vibe of this pretty cool and funky town. Frog Meadow is very close to the Rock River gay beach as well.

I was sold on Frog Meadow after the Yoga retreat last February (and will be attending again in February 2018.) When we were driving away my husband said “It far exceeded my expectations and my expectations were pretty high.” Mine too!
