We offer two types of herbal luncheons: our ever-popular Gourmet Boarding House Luncheons with Mini-Workshops and customized luncheons for groups of 10 or more.
The food is superb, as Madeline Wajda draws on her training in classical French cuisine, more than 30 years of experience hosting diplomatic dinners and receptions, and nine years as the Executive Chef at Willow Pond Farm.
She combines the best of traditional American and classical French fare with both the delicate and robust flavors of herbs to produce dishes such as gingered carrot soup with sage, grilled rosemary chicken, and cherry-lavender clafouti with lavender crème anglaise. Recipes are always provided and our shop is always open to diners.
Holiday Boarding House Luncheons
The boarding house luncheon series is one of our most enjoyable activities. Great food! Good company. And an opportunity to learn about the use of herbs in holiday cooking, crating and decorating.
Our holiday 2011 luncheons:
Luncheons include soup, a main course, salad, and dessert. (Of course, everything has herbs in it.)
Lunch will be served at noon; guests are invited to arrive earlier to shop. Stay for a mini-workshop afterwards on quick and easy herbal culinary, craft, gift-giving, and decorating for the holidays.
The cost is $30.00 and reservations are a must. Reserve your place now for yourself or your group.
Questions about reserving? Call 717-642-6387 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Group luncheons are designed for garden clubs, homemaker groups, Red Hat Societies, or any group of 10 or more. If weather allows, we start at 11 a.m. with a garden tour followed at noon by lunch on the patio. In cool or inclement weather, we move indoors and begin at noon with appetizers in our living room. The all-herbal meal includes an outstanding appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and dessert. After lunch, a meeting can be held, or we can offer a lecture on some aspect of herb culture or use. The cost for group luncheons is $25 per person.
Please e-mail email@example.com or call 717-642-6387 to set up a luncheon for your group.
Open Thurs-Sat, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m., starting April 4, 2013.
