Chef for a Day

I have just returned from the most beautiful part of Maryland, having just been "Chef for a day" and it's hard to put into words just how good the location and the course was. I have taken many cooking classes - but this one was one-on-one with a veteran of the industry teaching me some incredible recipes and techniques. The dinner itself was delightful, with a table up close to the pass through, fabulous service and a drink after dinner beside a roaring fire. The little touches, such as the personalized chef jacket, the certificate and printed menu to take with me made it all the more special.

Savage River Lodge is just incredible, delightful, quiet cabins, a huge central lodge with roaring fire, and mile upon mile of well marked hiking trails to really get out into the woods. The owners are fabulous, and their staff there go out of their way to make you feel very relaxed, and totally at home. My girlfried bought me the experience, and we are already planning our next trip there for more hiking, relaxation, and fabulous food and wine.

Thank you for access to such a wonderful gift. I am already envious of the other who will get to go and become "chef for a day", and stay at the Savage River Lodge. I will be shouting from the rooftops how good it was.
