Wrap Up Sugaring Season with These Maple Dishes

View as Map

Maple sugaring season brings New England from winter into spring, and it's about ready to wrap up for the year. Celebrate the sweetness by tasting maple-themed dishes while they last, from Clio's "Les Bois" dessert with maple, sumac, and white birch ice cream to TRADE's fried oysters and buckwheat waffles with spicy maple cream. Wash it all down with one of several bourbon-and-maple cocktails.
