The time has come to decorate the Inn for the Holidays. It seems to come around faster every year but we love the beautiful decorations and it really gets the staff in the Christmas mood. Now if we can just get our own houses done as well!
The Whitlock Inn is looking very special these days as the ladies have been decorating the Inn for the Holidays. Red and gold abound! Each detail tells the story of the love and care that the staff at the Whitlock Inn feels for the Inn. Imagine having your wedding or party in the midst of such delight. Schedule a visit during December so you can enjoy the decorations.
When the weather heats up– folks start calling to talk about their company’s Christmas party. Sometimes, I find it is hard when it’s 80 or 90 degrees outside to talk about Eggnog and Gingerbread, but I do love thinking about Chrismas decor. Here is a few shots of the Inn in December. I cannot stop thinking about what I am going to add this year. Two years ago we added the Christmas ball tree and last year we added twinke light out back and twinkle lights to the gazebo— this year– hmmm…. I have already got ideas floating in my head.
Okay– One of my favorite menu items that Carriage House has is the: Smoked Salmon Cheesecake Torte. It is abosolutely scrumptious. I am always asking Chef Jeff to make it. (there is a reason I am not skinny) So great news: He has shared the recipe and I am going to share it with you.
Smoked Salmon Cheesecake
2# cream cheese
1# Smoked Salmon
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
3 Tablespoons Saoy Sauce
1 Cup 1/2 & 1/2
Blend first 4 ingredients until smooth in mixer. Slowly add 1/2 & 1/2 and soy sauce. Pour into plastic lined spring form pan and bake in water bath at 325 degrees for 40 minutes or until set. Cool over night and serve wtih boiled egg, caviar (several types to add color), capers, chives and sour cream.
Yummy! Thanks Jeff at Carriage House for sharing your secret. And if you are like me and will never get around to making it you can always order one from them.
