Did you know we are featuring a new wine region throughout the Village Center each month? Read about what we did in March!
April, one of my favorite times to live in North Carolina, brings with it the promise of renewal and regeneration after a long winter. With its flowers and buds it brings back memories of times past while refocusing us on the freshness and excitement of the future. It is a time to explore new things, and in our opinion, to explore new things to drink. So, in honor of... Full Post >
Over the years we have tried many different ways to serve beautiful local, national and international farm house cheeses to our guests. This time I feel is our best yet! We now offer a Cheese Menu for our diners to choose from, along with a table presentation of the nine cheeses we carry (just to help the decision with a visual aid). On the menu we have two choices of each type of cheese, from blue to goat to bloomed rind, from which you can pick up to four. The cheese is then brought back to... Full Post >
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...there can never be too much chocolate! At least this is true at The Fearrington House. If you thought the classic Fearrington Chocolate Souffle was the only divine chocolate concoction made in The Fearrington House kitchen, then you are mistaken!
Representatives from Valrhona, a luxury chocolate manufacturer based in France, joined the Fearrington House staff and had some chocolate fun last month! From chocolate bars decorated with gold powder to cucumber... Full Post >

One dish I'm working on at the moment is a "double-roasted chicken noodle soup." I don't think many dishes come closer to comfort food than one with healing qualities -- maybe a grilled cheese! So, what does "double-roasted" mean? The "double-roasted" part of the soup is created when we combine a white chicken stock and equal amount of roasted chicken bones, giving the soup a beautiful color.
The underlining ingredient in this dish is the noodle, and I am going to take it and run! In the... Full Post >

Why do I like Parsnips? Parsnips are an uncommon vegetable that are normally not well utilized. However, I really like the story behind them. I don't think there is another vegetable that requires the impact of a season to influence harvesting as much as a parsnip. They are used a lot in England, and remain in the ground until the first frost. The parsnip stays in the ground because after the freeze of the first frost, all the starches turn to sugar.
A very versatile ingredient, parsnips can... Full Post >

Recently, we had the privilege of being a part of the 11th annual Gingerbread Benefit held at The Umstead Hotel in Cary.

The nonprofit organization supports families in our community through financial counseling, housing assistance, heath treatments, and counseling for individuals of domestic violence. Each year, dozens of talented bakeries and restaurants volunteer to build gingerbread houses that are... Full Post >

I only drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.

To start with, The Fearrington House Restaurant team has an amazing dynamic. Without that kind of camaraderie and support, it’s quite hard to make things happen properly in a fine-dining environment. There is also great work-life balance. Over the years, the experiences that I’ve gained while working the floor helped me in achieving my Advanced Sommelier certification.
Aside from that, it’s fun to have access to a lot of wines that I would normally not be able to experience and share... Full Post >
