Our Gourmet Candlelit Homemade Breakfasts always feature ingredients fresh from the fertile Lebanon Valley of Pennsylvania--which is where our Inn sits. Our quest is for the freshest, most tasty ingredients, and as many as possible are "Farm to Table." Rosalie only uses the highest quality ingredients, and puts decades of culinary training and love into every dish she creates. Each day is completely different. The elegant table settings are perfection.
We are pleased to serve a complimentary full gourmet candle-lit breakfast to our guests and we take into consideration any special dietary needs or restrictions. Breakfast is typically served in our inn dining room at 9:00 AM. Time exceptions can be arranged based upon availability.
Acclaimed Chef Cooking Classes
We bring you an artist in the preparation of incredible food. You will go home with new knowledge, anxious to try out what you have added to your cooking regime. Check in on the first evening (typically Friday) of the scheduled two-day cooking event. The first night, experience a wine and cheese reception where you will get to know your Chef.
The next morning, (typically Saturday), enjoy breakfast and leisure at the Inn. That afternoon, gather in the Inn's beautiful kitchen to learn about the menu, and recipes. Your Chef will take you through some kitchen basics first, and then move on to creating multiple dishes. You won't just be watching! You will be participating in the creation of each preparation. You will also be given the chef's private recipes for the dishes you prepare, so you can go home and impress your friends and family!
Tasting is a big part of cooking. You will be tasting ingredients and combinations during this fun and out of the ordinary afternoon as we work toward completion of the masterpiece that will be served later in the evening!
After an early evening break, we all assemble in the Inn's dining room for a delicious gourmet dinner...the dinner you helped create! What a perfect way to cap off a terrific day of learning!
Our Acclaimed Chef Cooking Class package includes chef's instruction and time, wine and cheese reception, gourmet dinner, recipes, embroidered Annville Inn apron, class photograph with the Chef, Inn's time and services: all for only $130. Accommodations additional. As one student told us, "We don't know how you do all this for such a great price...we spend that just going out to dinner at a fine restaurant! This is such a great value!"
