David Lyon from the Boston Globe visited Jillyanna’s, a new culinary school in York County for the New England Travel edition column.
When I opened the car door and smelled wood smoke, I was pretty sure I was in the right place. When I began walking up the gravel driveway and saw a petite woman in a full baker’s apron heading toward the gardet with scissors, I was positive. Jillyanna’s Woodfired Cooking School stands on a woodsy residential road in Kennebunkport’s village of Cape Porpoise. Jill Strauss moved to the site 26 years ago; last fall shea dded an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven surrounded by a broad bluestone patio.
