The stifling heat thinned the crowd a bit, but neighbors still stocked up on fresh fruits, vegetables, goat cheeses and yogurt, bakery delights, and slurped cool italian ice!

Jeanne and Gerard live in Rochester. They perform to large and small audiences. Their music is both recognizable and accessible to young and old. Other accomplished musicians will often join them to form ad hoc bands that have as much fun as the audience!

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Tea & Cookies

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (you might like to substitute whole wheat flour or just use all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (I like to use Kerrygold Irish butter here, such a strong flavor)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • zest from one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2–3 cups blueberries


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. In a smaller bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients. Pour the dry into the wet, mixing until just combined. Let sit for about five minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, put a large skillet on the stove on medium heat. When hot and sizzling, grease the pan and ladle about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Carefully place blueberries into pancakes at this point, pressing them into the batter. Cook until bubbles are formed, flip and cook about 1 minute more. Keep warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.
  4. Serve with plenty of maple syrup, extra blueberries and a cup of strong coffee.
