Serious Eats in Wellfleet, MA?

My husband & I are taking a weekend getaway to Wellfleet, MA on the Cape. We havent spent much time on the Cape and no time at all in Wellfleet and are looking for some good spots to eat.

We are driving down from Boston on Thursday afternoon and coming home on Saturday evening so a few days to much on something seriously delicious!

What are your favorite places to visit when you go?

Baking Bible??

I am an avid home baker with a desire to increase my baking skills. I have taken baking/cooking classes in the past but tend to find them a waste of my time. I often feel as if I could have saved the money and taught myself at home.

I am thinking that another route to take is to buy a really good, instructive baking cookbook and teach myself. Does anyone have any suggestions??

Learning to Make Good Coffee, Suggestions?

I have this dream of opening up a cozy coffee shop one day in my neighborhood.

I have the baking part down (my own personal skills and recipes are good, although I am taking classes to hone them), and I make good coffee with steamed milk at home, but I don't know how to make a good espresso based beverage- latte, mocha, cappuccino, etc.

Does anyone have an suggestions for learning such skills? Are there good books on the topic of coffee in general?

I live in Boston and would love if anyone knew of classes I could take in the area. Would anyone in the area be willing to teach me?

Freezing Bread Dough

I am thinking about making some bread dough that I could freeze in small portions and take out and bake when needed (fresh bread is so much better than store or several day old bread...). However, I am not sure whether I should let my dough rise the second time before or after I freeze it.

Any advice?
