The Fearrington House Restaurant, a member of the Relais & Chateaux association, is recognized for its sophisticated seasonal cuisine and personable service and promises guests a unique fine dining experience. Located in the original Fearrington farm home-place, the series of small, elegant dining rooms feature views of the stunning gardens; each is furnished with European antiques, and accented with original Southern art that creates an understated elegance.
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. This event is opened to the public and designed to raise money for Triangle Family Services. 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 >
One of my favorites on the Fall Menu at The Fearrington House -- the "Ham & Eggs" with pineapple dish. Not only do the ingredients come together well in the dish, but the combination brings back childhood memories of going to the pub with my parents. It is a classic English dish. I think our guests from the south will really enjoy it -- pulled pork with a little twist.

It is that time of the year again when the cooler air of the fall season descends upon us here at The Fearrington House. One by one, we exchange the crisp and refreshing white wines of summer for the richly textured red wines more suitable for the cooler months.
This year, Max and I are delighted to be able to offer our guests some iconic wines that are rarely seen on any restaurants’ wines by the glass offerings -– Guido Porro’s Vigna Lazzairasco Barolo, and Angelo Gaja’s highly... Full Post >

After much success with our summer collaboration with Sean Lilly Wilson and Chris Davis of Fullsteam Brewery, last week we released the Fearrington Fall Beer at a release dinner on our Garden Terrace. We also had the release of the great art work that Win Crannell from Georgia created for the Fullsteam Fearrington Beer series label, an oak tree in each season. Thanks to Sean at Fullsteam we will be featuring the art work at the entrance of The Fearrington Granary. Each season as we... Full Post >

For those that are not familiar, Castles and Retreats is the translation of a highly regarded organization Fearrington proudly is a part of called Relais & Chateaux. Just a few weeks ago I overheard a guest that was checking-out of The Fearrington House Inn ask what exactly Relais & Chateaux meant. The Front Desk associate gave the literal translation of the words and the guest agreed that our property certainly was just that - a relaxing retreat for them.
