Cooking School Weekends at the Inn & Our Signature Inn Recipes


On FEBRUARY 23-25, please join CHEF PETER for “FRENCH PASTRY AND DESSERT TECHNIQUES MADE TRULY SIMPLE”—Featuring flaky “Pate Brise” (pie pastry) and Rough Puff Pastry!  You will be making our famous Deep Dish Breakfast Quiche in three different styles, a classic French “Tarte Tatin” with local apples and homemade creme fraiche along with a Cherry Puff Pastry for your breakfast on Sunday.  We will also prepare an easy chocolate mousse triangle recipe from Lyon France—you will learn a fun chocolate technique along with a quick and easy mousse recipe to create a stunning dessert that we will all enjoy on Saturday evening after a fabulous dinner out at one of our local Foodie’s Favorite Restaurants.


On MARCH 23-25, CHEF PETER is conducting a second exciting class titled “WORKING WITH CHOCOLATE AND DESSERTS USING EUROPEAN METHODS”—Chef Peter will demonstrate and have you make French chocolate and European desserts!  You will make Chocolate Truffles three ways, an incredible Black and White Layer Chiffon Torte with rum sponge cake, plus Chef Peter will share the secrets of French Hot Chocolate “chocolat chaud” (hint: lots of cream and spices) and an orange-pecan Swiss Twist Coffeecake from the Ecole Hoterliere, in Lausanne Switzerland. Saturday night we will enjoy the desserts we have made after a night out at one of our local Foodie’s Favorite Restaurants.

Both COOKING SCHOOL WEEKENDS include complimentary artisan breakfasts each morning, afternoon refreshments, Organic Fruit Shrubs and savory house-made hors d’ oeuvres in between and during the Class. Rates are $274 for a King or Queen Room in the Main House or $299 per night (2 night minimum) for a King Room with Fireplace in the Carriage House.  Prices include the classes for 2 persons per room but do not include your Saturday dinner out with the Innkeepers, which is optional.
