B&B Featured Again on Food Tour in Richmond

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Maureen of Real Richmond: Food Tours and More led a private group recently on a “VCU:Alternative Eats” tour featuring the architecture, culture, and food of the historic Fan District bordering on Virginia Commonwealth University’s Monroe Park campus . The tour’s next to the last stop was Richmond’s – and the Fan’s – premier bed and breakfast. Evidently, it was a big hit!

Think of it! Lavender Panna Cotta drizzled with honey and topped with fresh berries

According to Maureen: “What is so impressive is how everything – the house, the gardens, the 3 courses! of food – were perfect, but the perfection isn’t a bit stuffy or off-putting. On the contrary, your warm, comfortable way included us in the fantasy that living this well could be ours, too!”

Lactose Intolerant? Try This Watermelon Treat to beat the heat

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Summertime and its blistering heat always brings the desire for ice cream or gelato to cool down your insides.  What do you do if you’re lactose-intolerant or allergic to milk products?  We tried a new recipe here at our bed and breakfast this morning for a guest who had that exact issue.  We had planned on our signature lavender panna cotta as our first course – well, that wouldn’t work very well.

So Saturday, Mike came up with a sherbet/granitas-like concoction using watermelon.

Refreshing watermelon makes a cool treat for breakfast's first course! Try the recipe!

Here are the ingredients:
2 cups of cubed and seeded watermelon
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup cranberry juice

First, place watermelon cubes in a food processor, or a blender. Cover, process or blend until smooth. You should end up with about 3 cups of pureed watermelon.

Stir in sugar.
