NORTHSHOREMAG.COM 10 JANUARY + FEBRUARY 2021 PHOTOGRAPHS, TOP TO BOTTOM COURTESY OF BLANTYRE, BY BRUCE PETERSON/ FOOD STYLING BY SUZANNE LEE, AND BY SHUTTERSTOCK As I write this letter, 2021 is just a few weeks away—a new year and the promise of a fresh start. While the pandemic continues to shutter businesses and keeps us from seeing loved ones, hope is on the horizon. Just yesterday, the first COVID-19 vaccines were administered to frontline workers at Boston Medical Center. And more help and hope are on the way. With brighter days ahead, we celebrate the Best of the North Shore Wedding Awards in this winter issue. While many nuptials were put on hold this past year, we still want to honor those businesses that help create the magic behind matrimony—no matter how small the wedding. I am hoping all of our BONS Wedding Award winners can once again start planning larger weddings for brides and grooms across the North Shore. It's exciting to think of the 2021 summer months being jam-packed with celebrations of devotion and love. Congratulations to all of our winners; we hope to raise a toast to you in person later this year. Also in this issue, we highlight a few New England weekend getaways that are following pandemic protocols. I was able to visit the historical, Scottish-inspired Blantyre in the Berkshires this past fall. A five-star country hotel, it is truly a magical and luxurious place. And since we can't visit Europe right now, Blantyre just might be the next best thing. We also offer ideas for skiing around New England. As we go to press, all slopes featured in this issue are planning to open for the season—with reduced crowds, of course. So please call ahead for any changes that might have been implemented. In addition, we feature a cornucopia of ethnic-inspired cuisine found around the North Shore—from Eastern European pierogi made by two sisters in Lynn to chef Graeme Gilchrist's ( formerly of Newburyport's Ceia) new Indian restaurant, Taj, in Gloucester, as well as the flavors of the Middle East at Karimah's Kitchen in New Hampshire, and some West African coconut treats from GoodieKrunch of Haverhill. We hope this issue provides you with ideas and inspiration for new dishes to try, places to visit, and cocktail recipes to sip this winter. Stay well! Nancy E. Berry, Editor WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU Send comments to the editor: Top to bottom, by the fire at Blantyre, hot rum cocktail, and no icing on the cake!
