Food Network asked VPR Cafe regular Melissa Pasanen to come up with a list of iconic Vermont eats and drinks and where to go to enjoy them.

Hundreds of miles and tastes later, here's what she recommended, from maple soft serves to fried lake perch to venison chili.

See photos and descriptions of all of Pasanen's picks in Food Network's gallery, "Green Mountain Grub: The Best Things To Eat In Vermont."

Melissa Pasanen is a freelance writer and the food editor for Vermont Life magazine.

The VPR Cafe is made possible with support from Kiss The Cook in Burlington and Middlebury. For those who love cooking!

Ric was a producer for Vermont Edition and host of the VPR Cafe.
