On the Road to Fearrington House Inn and Restaurant – Pittsboro, North Carolina
The next stop was to see the Belted Galloways (Or Belties, as they are known). This breed of cattle originated in Scotland and are a very hearty breed of beef cattle. Chef Bedford told us that the only job the Belties have at Fearrington is to stand around and look good, so it doesn’t take much heartiness to do that other than trying to stay cool in the hot summers of North Carolina.
The Culinary Retreat package included afternoon tea and an enjoyable wine and hor d’oeuvres reception in the Garden House with Chef Bedford and the other class participants. The reception was then followed by a dinner with wine pairings with our group. Our meal was exceptional. Everything was beautifully plated and each bite of the dishes offered a unique burst of flavor.
It was then that I became really excited about the next day’s class. I could not wait to learn from and work with this incredibly talented chef in his kitchen.
I was not disappointed.
I will be sharing the details of our Culinary Class at Fearrington House Inn with you next along with a recipe from one of the dishes we prepared. In addition, I will have an interview with Executive Chef Colin Bedford next week.
Enjoy your week!
