Culinary travel makes for some interesting trips. On Saturday, March 20, 2010, Pacific Northwest Culinary enthusiasts will convene at the Prospect Historic Hotel near Crater Lake, Oregon. The reason? A Getaway Beer Tasting Dinner featuring Southern Oregon Brewing and the imaginative cuisine of Prospect Hotel owner Karen Wickman!
The Menu (designed by Karen to complement Tom's and Ander's selections of beers):
Appetizer: Chevre Chaud oozing from within a fluffy pastry purse
Soup: Smoky Shrimp and Chorizo in tomato base
Salad: Celery Root and Fennel Matchsticks tossed with hazelnut vinaigrette
Entree: Rock Cornish Game Hen with spice-rubbed crispy skin and overflowing with Red Potato and Olive Stuffing, accompanied by Braised Brussel Sprouts drenched with Bacon Cider Gastrique
Dessert: Dark Chocolate Tart sprinkled with Sea Salt
Learn more about Southern Oregon Brewing Company while sampling their beers.
Price: Only $55 per person!
Reservations are required. Call Fred or Karen at the Prospect Historic Hotel at (541) 560-3664.
The Prospect Historic Hotel is the closest Crater Lake lodging at this time of year. Plan for a "Play and Stay" trip--enjoy the dinner and stay on for a great breakfast the next morning. Then take the beautiful drive up to Crater Lake for a little playing in the snow. It doesn't get more authentic Oregon than this!
