Thanksgiving Dinner 2012

Chef Eric Garcia has released the menu for Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, Nov. 22. It looked so good we just had to share. Stay tuned. Chef Eric is pulling out some of his recipes, and we plan to share the wealth of his culinary knowledge here, too.

Growing Closer

Our stay at the Inn at Warner Hall was phenomenal. From the food to the service to the beds to the cookies to the morning coffee and breakfast…and of course the dogs and the Innkeepers, everything was amazing. My wife and I spent five nights there for our 25th anniversary, and we grew closer than ever by sitting on […]

Best Weekend Getaway

Absolutely one of the best weekend getaways we’ve had…and we’ve had a bunch. Our thanks to you two (Troy and Theresa Stavens) for being such geat hosts. Please extend a big “bravo” to Chef Eric. We were thrilled to partake in such well prepared meals. Also, thank your staff…felt welcomed upon first meeting. Again, thank […]

Chocolate Raspberry Ganache
Raspberry Chocolate Ganache

We asked Chef Eric Garcia what his guilty pleasure was and he admitted it – sweets and desserts! Turns out cookies don’t last too long in his house – and this Chocolate Raspberry Ganache probably wouldn’t last long either! That may be why he’s so quick to share his sweet concoctions with us around the […]

Wild Mushroom Hunt, Chicken of the Woods
Mushroom Hunting

By Stephanie Heinatz, Friend of the Inn at Warner Hall It couldn’t have been more than a couple of days after I shooed my 2-year-old son away from a wild mushroom growing in our front yard that Chef Eric Garcia from the Inn at Warner Hall asked if I’d be interested in going wild mushroom hunting. […]

Rich, Buttery Monkfish

Google “monkfish” and chances are you’ll find references to an “ugly, weird looking” fish. It’s true. Monkfish are not the most pleasant fish to look at. But there is a reason – thanks to its buttery flavor and rich white meat – it’s been described in the same way we talk about lobster. Today, Chef […]

Apple Butter Recipe and Smells of Fall

Is there any better fall smell than that of apples and spices cooking away in your kitchen? Chef Eric Garcia recently pulled out his crockpot (yes, even the “master” uses a crockpot!) to stir up some homemade apple butter with fruit he picked from his very own trees. The fragrance of  “Fall” made his home smell absolutely delicious, and now he’s sharing his […]

Bird Eggs at the Inn at Warner Hall

After all, “from what we get, we can make a […]

Inn at Warner Hall Web Site
