Make plans for the Country Inns Herb Tour June 7-8, 2014!

It’s time for the Inn-to-Inn Herb Tour, named as one of Yankee Magazine’s Top Twenty New England events. This year, the Tour has added tours of Moat Mountain and Tuckerman’s Breweries, family farms, a chocolatier, and an organic market to the 10 inns on the tour. Each inn features a different herb with samples of two tasty herb-based treats, recipes, and herbal lore. Also new this year, chefs at four of the inns will present cooking demonstrations.

This year, the Inn at Ellis River will be featuring chives, which can be found growing at the inn along with herbs featured in past tours, such as mint, sage, lemon basil, oregano, and dill. Chives are members of the same family as garlic, shallots, and leeks. They are a hardy perennial plant with beautiful purple flowers, native to both the Old and New Worlds. Chives add an onion-like flavor with a hint of garlic to savory foods such as eggs, potatoes, soup, and fish., so we’re planning some tasty breakfast potatoes and a spicy soup for sampling.

Book our two night package that includes a welcome reception, chive-themed breakfast, your tickets to the tour, a notebook of recipes, and a commemorative linen tea towel. Our deluxe package also includes a three course “plant-to-plate” dinner at one of four of the inns on the tour. Spring has come to the Mt. Washington Valley, so it’s time to enjoy a foodie getaway that will help you enjoy the bounty of local produce all summer long.

Let’s celebrate National Waffle Day (August 24) all month ~ this special breakfast treat deserves it. Why August 24?
