I'm crazy excited to announce my latest project. It's called [trumpets blaring]:
What is A Sweet Escape? Well, it's:
One part food conference
One part sleepover party
One part dinner party
A BIG dash of summer camp!
And I want YOU to come!
A long weekend spent in a gorgeous Vermont country house, surrounded by picturesque green mountains and bright blue skies. Your days are spent in the company of other amazing food lovers taking part in hands-on cooking classes, DIY crafting workshops, wine & cheese tastings, and cocktail mixing demos.
You can take part in daily local excursions to meet cool local artisan food producers or do a little shopping in the cute town shops. Happy Hour starts at 5ish on the sunny patio (bring your sunglasses!), and meals are shared with new friends around a long wooden farm table decorated with candles and wildflowers.
After dinner, take a dip in the relaxing hot tub, or grab a cozy hoodie and head back outside for late-night s'mores and gabbing around a crackling bonfire.
Evenings are for curling up in front of a delicious food film (oh hello, Johnny Depp!), while snacking on chocolate cake, spiked hot cocoa, and gooey decadent truffles. Or you can opt for a relaxing candlelit massage just steps away from your bedroom door.
On the last day, enjoy a final farewell brunch with your new friends, and then take home a gift bag filled with treats and surprises to help you remember the weekend.
I love sharing with you here on the blog each day, but it's even more fun to meet you in real life. Which is why I dreamed up A Sweet Escape.
It's a 3-day, all-inclusive culinary & crafting retreat that's open to fellow food bloggers, readers, writers, home cooks--just about anyone who loves food and cooking, and wants to get away for a few days to learn, share, and enjoy.
There will be cooking demos, arts & crafts workshops, wine & cheese tastings, local excursions to meet cool food producers, incredible meals, and SO. MUCH. MORE!
Oh...and there will also be chocolate. A LOT of chocolate!
Good Commons--a gorgeous retreat house in Plymouth, Vermont--and the rates include round-trip travel via private jitney from midtown Manhattan (you can also meet us there).
I will be hosting you and preparing all the meals--as well as leading some fun cooking classes. I'm also bringing in some incredible people to share their amazing food and crafting knowledge with you, and have reached out to some of my favorite artisan food brands to donate delicious things for us to enjoy throughout the weekend.
And did I mention the hot tub, yoga classes, and in-house massage therapist?
