My epicurean interests began about the time I was responsible for feeding myself. What began as a requirement for sustenance quickly evolved into a passion for food and an opportunity to explore new flavors, smells and textures.
Interest in food became a profession… The Wild Flour Bakery was born in Whitefish Montana, providing Whitefish with creative pastries and breads. Tarts filled with fresh local fruits and VT maple syrup became our signature product. Crisp buttery tart crust mounded with fall Huckleberry’s, combined with an able dose of VT Maple syrup resulted from the cross pollination of local wild foods.
Maple Trout-Lilli lives in a yellow house at the top of fifteen broad stone steps. In her cheery kitchen she experiments cooking with maple. The ensuing recipes are as varied as maple syrup grades, so stock up on this year's crop.
