Caliente! Food

The art of dining well is no slight art, the pleasure not a slight pleasure. Michel de Montaigne

One of my favorite things about living in the Mount Washington Valley is the ample selection of great, independently owned restaurants. I consider them one of the Valley’s finest assets, after all, who doesn’t like food?

It seems there is always a place to go depending upon my taste for the day; I’ve found myself at the Bangkok Cafe more times than I count after a day of climbing. Or at Chef’s Market for lunch and Flatbread for a little post-work social hour and some healthy, organic flatbread pizzas. It’s a wonder I even make to the grocery store sometimes. You can imagine how pleased I was when I found out the above mentioned will be providing some signature hors d’oeuvres for Caliente!

They aren’t the only ones though, the often bustling May Kelley’s and Delaney’s Hole in the Wall will be there. And to beat the November cold, Frontside Grind will be providing coffee (arguably the best in town) and the award winning, ever-popular White Mountain Cider Company will have hot cider and doughnuts on hand.

The Shannon Door pub and Wildcat Inn & Tavern (with assistance from Horsefeathers) will be contributing a great selection of appetizers from the Jackson side of the Mount Washington Valley.

But could it really be Caliente! without some south-of-the-border flair? Nope, so of course Conway’s Cafe Noche will be there for all of you who prefer a little spice in your life. I hope you will join us for Caliente! and share in the experience of enjoying some of the best food the Mount Washington Valley has to offer.

October 28, New food news: Look for tasty treats from the Shovel Handle Pub and Whitney’s Inn in Jackson…and some homemade items from Kismet volunteer chefs and bakers, including a birthday cake for Kismet (10 years old this year!), sushi, and a secret pumpkin flavored dessert that involves cream cheese filling.

Many MANY thanks to Anne Skidmore and the rest of our amazing events committee for getting out there to rally all of this wonderful food for you to eat on November 7 at Caliente!
