I don't usually find dining recommendations in books that come across my desk, but here's one that arrived in a new collection of recipes and essays by Vermont writers. The book is called "Southshire Pepper-Pot: A Literary Feast with Culinary Refrains.'' And the praise that caught my eye starts like this: "I am privileged to live within a moderate, if dangerous, bicycle ride from the best diner in the country. I'm not the first person to make this claim about the Benn. The Benn is not undiscovered, distant, or foreign..."

Writer Bruce Lierman goes on to describe the fare at the Blue Benn Diner in Benington, which, in a quick look at reviews from Michael Stern on roadfood.com to Frommer's, appears to be universally loved.
