Have S’more Fun at your San Diego Wedding!

L'Auberge Del Mar ~

Here at L’Auberge Del Mar, we love a fun dessert bar, and what is more fun by the beach than s’mores?

Farm to Table Dining at Stowe Mountain Lodge-Same As It Ever Was!

Stowe Mountain Lodge® ~

The appeal of farm-to-table cuisine nationwide is significant. However, as a Chef in Vermont, this is nothing new. We have been doing it  for years. Afterall, we are in “farm country”. 

 In more rural areas, I can see this being called a “movement” because of the change of products coming to markets and restaurants utilizing different ingredients.  In New England, we cherish the local ingredients when they are available and mourn them when they go.

 Some guests come to dine with us in June or July and are wondering why we do not use heirloom, native tomatoes.  In Northern Vermont our tomato season peaks during late August and early September. I will buy as many local tomatoes as I can and prepare them for the fall and winter season, then respect the ever-changing cycle of the seasons when they will return. 

 Here at  Stowe Mountain Lodge, I seek out dozens of local farmers, cheese makers, syrup makers, etc.  My menus are constantly changing because of these men and women tilling the land and harvesting their crops when the product is at its best.  My hope as a New England Chef is that this “farm to table movement” will evolve to something that is just common place for all.  We can achieve this by utilizing the foods of our region and respecting the season in which they are grown. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

San Diego Activities for Small Groups On The Island

Paradise Point ~

Named the 5th best meeting destination in the U.S. by Cvent, San Diego is the go-to gathering spot for groups of all kinds – reunions, conferences, weddings, executive retreats, incentive trips, galas and more.  And when you meet in a city that typically has over 300 days of sunshine per year, you can bet a little time will be spent outside the boardroom. Not too long ago, our friends at The Event Team shared their top San Diego activities for small groups who want to get out and experience America’s Finest City, but some groups prefer to stay put to save time and money on transportation costs. Groups looking to keep things simple should pick a host venue like Paradise Point that offers an array of options on site. Here are the most popular small group activities available across Paradise Point’s 44 acres:
