Briar Patch Inn & Three Fox Cooking Class Weekend

February 23 - February 25

Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast Inn Middleburg VA

Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast Inn invites you and your favorite foodie/travel companion to book a weekend visit and learn how to bring together a delicious 3-4 course meal with all the flare of a professional chef!

Here are the details to further whet your appetite for a gourmet getaway weekend:

Stay at the Briar Patch 2 nights (Friday and Saturday)

Enjoy their delicious breakfasts Saturday and Sunday mornings
Friday night includes a wine tasting with an expert from Three Fox Vineyards and appetizers prepared by the Briar Patch Chef
Consider a wineries and/or breweries tour on Saturday afternoon
Cooking class on Saturday night, where you will be invited to do a little of that slicing and dicing, learn tips from the chef on advanced preparation, holding, and presentation techniques, and of course eat a delicious 3 or 4 course meal enjoyed with wines from Three Fox Vineyards.

At their Feb. 23-24 Cooking Class conducted by Chef Bernard Henry, attendees will enjoy bringing this 4-course meal to life along with wine from Three Fox Vineyards, savor the results and take home the recipes to share with family and friends.

Friday Evening Hors d’oeuvres:

Green Chile Gougéres (Mini Cheese Puffs): The distant cousin of the French Gougéres baked with cheddar cheese and jalapenos!
Kanpur Vegetable Samosa: Mixed Vegetables, turmeric, and cilantro converge delightfully with Indian spices. They serve it with a Kiwi-Cilantro Chutney.
Deviled Quail Eggs with Black (American) Caviar: This is an elegant take on an American classic.
Mini Asian Crab Cakes: Mini crab cakes encrusted with sesame seeds get a kick from wasabi and soy sauce. The toppings of wasabi, mayonnaise, cucumber and pickled ginger add creaminess, crispness and tang, as well as color.

A representative from Three Fox Vineyards will be conducting a wine tasting along with these hors d’oeuvres on Friday night. Three Fox wines will be served with dinner on Saturday night.

Saturday Evening Dinner:

Appetizer: Seven-Layer Salmon Bites – They use dark pumpernickel bread as a base and we top it with layers of Scottish smoked salmon and whipped-herbed cream cheese.

Appetizer: Moroccan Beef Kabobs – A homemade marinade adds tang and tenderness to these beefy and tender – they use beef tenderloin – kabobs.

First Course: Risotto with Leeks, Shitake Mushrooms and Truffles – A great vegetarian dish with a perfect combo of flavors! One you hope that there will be leftovers.

Main Course: Classic Seafood Paella – An icon of Spain’s cultural identity, paella done right is a truly spectacular dish: a thin blanket of saffron-scented rice with a crackly, crunchy bottom crust (or socarrat), studded with fresh seafood.

Dessert: Chocolate Pots de Crème – Pot de crème (“pot of cream”) is a traditional French custard typically served in a pot-shaped cup. This milk chocolate version is super silky and dense!

Visit the Briar Patch website for details on room rates and availability for this weekend.

Cooking Class Pricing:

Hors d’oeuvres & wine tasting on Friday night and the 4-course meal with wine on Saturday night: $125 plus tax per person.

They have some spaces available if you want to just attend the cooking class without the overnight stays.
