Herb, Food and Beer Tour

Submitted by on April 1, 2014 – 7:59 amNo Comment

herbsWhat do basil, brews and bittersweet all have in common? Road Trips Foodies wandering the White Mountains of New Hampshire will have the chance to taste all of these (and more) during the first Herb, Food and Beer Tour.

This celebration of local flavors combines tastings and tours at ten White Mountain inns with cooking demonstrations, a plant-to-plate “herb-inspired” dinner and overnight stays at a choice of Mount Washington Valley inns.

Formerly focused solely on herb tastings, trivia and recipes at each inn, the Country Inns in the White Mountains have ramped up their annual herb tour to include a celebration of local flavors such as visits to breweries, chocolate makers and family-owned farms on top of the tours, tastings, recipes, cooking demonstrations from member-inn chefs and an herb-inspired dinner featuring locally grown and created specialty foods.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 7 and 8, 2014, each inn presents an in-depth look at a popular culinary herb paired with tastings of local flavors along the way. Tour-goers will take home herb trivia, historical facts and recipes while tasting a different herb-inspired dish at each inn. Stops have been added along the way at Moat Mountain Brewery, Tuckerman’s Brewery, Bavarian Chocolate Haus, The Local Grocer, Earle Family Farm and Weston’s Farm.

Five Northern inns (Jackson to Albany, New Hampshire) will be open June 7 and five different Southern inns (Conway to Chocorua) will be open June 8.

The tour is primarily for those booking a two-night package at one of the ten Country Inns in the White Mountains. Those not wishing to reserve an overnight package may reserve and purchase tickets between May 11 and June 2, 2014, for $40 per person by calling 207:935-1269. Three course plant-to-plate herb inspired dinners will take place at the Darby Field Inn, 1785 Inn, Snowvillage Inn and Inn at Crystal Lake throughout the weekend. Dinners are available to the public for $45 per person (not including tax, tip or beverages) if purchased outside a lodging package.
