MUSKOKA, ON--(Marketwired - September 16, 2016) - Sherwood Inn (www.sherwoodinn.ca), one of Ontario's most romantic resorts, is pleased to announce that they are once again offering Culinary Weekends at the historic Muskoka inn on Lake Joseph. Sherwood Inn has hosted several very successful food & wine pairing weekends in the past. With the return of Roger Tremblay as Sherwood Inn's Director of Operations, these popular special weekends are back once again. For the first Culinary Weekend, scheduled for November 18 to 20, 2016, Sherwood Inn has partnered with local craft breweries for Friday night and Johnston's Cranberry Marsh, a Canadian Signature Experience, to compliment Saturday afternoon's chef demonstration. Treasury Wine Estates will co-host Saturday night's ten-course dinner.
"Food is my personal passion, so I can't wait for our first Culinary Weekend. I introduced these culinary events at Sherwood Inn several years ago as General Manager, and it has been too many years since the last one," remarks Roger Tremblay. "Since my return to Sherwood this spring, guests have been continually asking me when we are going to hold another culinary weekend. It has always been a very popular event. So we made the decision to start them again this fall. Sherwood Inn has a reputation for inspired cuisine with one of the top restaurants in Muskoka. We are committed to culinary excellence. We proudly use local, farm fresh ingredients whenever possible, including many herbs and vegetables from our gardens, and our extensive wine cellar has won multiple Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. Offering an exclusive weekend package featuring fine food and beverage only seemed natural," explains Tremblay.
Sherwood Inn's Culinary Weekend kicks off on the Friday with casual fine-pub style food stations and craft brewery samplings, followed by an evening campfire with gourmet hot chocolate at "the point" where countless couples have said their "I do's". On Saturday morning, a breakfast buffet is served, and in the afternoon, there is a Chef Demonstration and Johnston's Cranberry Wine Sampling. During their stay, guests will then have time to enjoy Sherwood's amenities and local Muskoka attractions. Saturday evening, guests gather in the lounge by a roaring fire for the General Manager's Reception in anticipation of weekend's main event, a gourmet dinner of ten carefully selected courses.
"For this year's Culinary Weekend, top chefs from our sister ClubLink properties, Rocky Crest Golf Resort, The Water's Edge Wine Bar and Grill at The Lake Joseph Club, and the Mark O'Meara Golf Club in Huntsville, will join team leader Everett Bell, Sherwood Inn's Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Manager. Each chef will be contributing their culinary flair to the event," says Jody Gillis Sherwood Inn Group Sales Manager. "We are very excited to be able to showcase the talents of our entire ClubLink Muskoka culinary team. This is 'Sher' to be a not-to-be-missed event. The Nov 18-20, 2016 Culinary Weekend will be the only event that Sherwood Inn hosts on those dates. Tickets are limited to ensure everyone enjoys an 'inn-timate' culinary experience, Sherwood style.
