New this fall will be a weekend culinary retreat at the farm; November 3-5. In addition to three cooking classes, there will be ample time to roam the farm, walk the trails help collect eggs and feed animals. The farm has its own herb garden and we will utilize fresh vegetables from our farm or local farms where possible and our own natural eggs, lamb, chicken, beef and pork.
Chef Eva will seek input for the class menus in advance of the retreat.The weekend will start with snacks and complimentary wine on your arrival Friday late afternoon or evening. Saturday morning (after farm chores for those that want to participate) will be a continental breakfast. You can participate in preparing the breakfast at your option. All of the classes are hands on and the participants will be divided into small teams to work on different menu items. There will also be demonstration of culinary techniques. The morning class will focus on using fresh vegetables and fruit for a menu that is lighter and healthy. There will be a break after lunch. The late afternoon class will be hearty and feature meat dishes, seasonal vegetables, a unique dessert and complementary wine. Sunday morning the class will focus on a farm house breakfast with a twist. The Saturday classes will be 3-4 hours depending on the complexity of the menu.
