I was once one of the lucky ones who spent a summer in Oaks Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard.

Beetlebung wasn’t there yet, only a small ice cream shop For those who are heading to the Vineyard, or have tasted Chef Danny Finger’s culinary creations,  I highly recommend Beetlebung Restaurant.  I will be back on Cape Cod in September. a magical month on the islands. Hoping to see you there.

Chef Danny Finger

This article and recipes first appeared in Vineyard Style Magazine.

Chef Danny once prepared a similar French toast treat for me in his family’s ski lodge in Vermont.

I can tell you first hand how sublime it tasted after our morning  walk through their enchanted forest.

Of course his Ski lodge French toast is topped with real Vermont maple syrup.
