Isn’t this the best time of year? Fresh garden vegetables are being harvested daily from our bountiful garden. I love the warm tomatoes, ripened by the hot summer sun, picked at 4:00 and served at 6:00. The chef’s love this time of year when they have the freshest and best of the season to create tasty, scrumptious dishes, right from our gardens and from local farms in our Virginia farm to table restaurant La Table Provencale here at the inn.
Dining on the terrace has also been a favorite for our guests with the breeze of the evening gently blowing. It is a great time of the year to dine Al Fresco or in our Sun Room.
The restaurant La Table Provencale has just won the Best of the Award of Excellence for our extensive wine list for 2013. Peruse our over 1,000 choices on the wine list and find something cool and crisp for to go with the lighter fare of summer.
The orchard is providing us with lots of fruits, peaches, apricots, cherries, plums and the apples are ripening on the trees. Chef Scott, and Chef Barbara are have a new dessert, The Peach Explosion. Peach Crisp, Peach Pecan Ice Cream, Vanilla Panna Cotta, Peach Basil Compote, Grilled Peach with Raspberry Cream. Yummy seasonal tastes and textures. And Pears are on their way!
