From the Farm to the Table

 My trip to northern California had so many surprises. I was impressed by the Farmhouse Inn, even breakfast was an event!  Yes, Inns are usually known for their breakfast but here they served a complimentary two course made-to-order gourmet meal. 

I had a first course of Donut Muffins and strawberries with golden balsamic vinegar. Then there was a choice from two second- courses. Either Huevos Rancheros (Eggs Rancheros) poached fresh eggs from their own farm along with black beans, chorizo, queso fresco, home- made salsa and fried tortillas or baked Blueberry French toast. The French toast was different from any other French toast I have ever tasted with their nightingale baguette, blueberries, salted pecans, Chantilly whipped cream, blueberry-maple syrup, and cherry wood smoked bacon.  It was so tasty and such a flavorful combination! Another breakfast featured Mascarpone stuffed French toast.

Catherine and Joe Bartolomei, the owners of the Farmhouse Inn, offer such great menus which change daily so you should be ready for spectacular taste treats.  Catherine feels, “A farmhouse is what everyone dreams a farm house could be. The experience we are offering is unique. Our food is wholesome and nutritious.  Most of the time, the eggs are from our own chickens and the produce from our gardens.”

Joe discussed their Executive Chef, “We have a Michelin Chef who spends half-a-day stopping at 4-5 gardens while getting from his home to work. He returns with boxes and boxes of produce and decides his menu each day. No menu stays longer than a day. The fruit you eat was on the vine eight hours earlier. It is that quick and that fresh.

The couple’s Jacuzzi offered a windowed view of the private porch and forest while they bathe. There were more choices in the shower with either steam, or a regular shower, or both at the same time.  

  
 
 

Enjoy the fireplace in the bedroom or on the porch.

The fireplace worked either in the bedroom or on the private porch for romantic evenings. My suite had a weather vane on the dresser, farm implements and other interesting decorations. I was happy to see their television brought all of my favorite programs even though I was busy with so much to do around the area.

Joe Bartolomei explained, “We have a total of 18 cottages, main house rooms and barn suites on our six acre property. Our guests really get personal attention with six concierges and three bellmen for the 18 rooms.

The James Bond Wine Table

May 15th, 2010 • by admin
When you visit Del Friscos, do not miss seeing the most amazing $1.2 million dollar James Bond table. Looking like a normal table at first, Jacque touched her remote control pad and the table suddenly opened to present the James Bond OO7 Films Wine Collection. Eighteen magnums of Cabernet wine from Napa Valley wineries each represent different Bond films. These one- of-a kind bottles are each laser-edged.
