Monday Morning Blog
Airlie is a drop dead gorgeous, environmental research and conference center in Fauquier County just outside of Warrenton.
The fabulous restaurant at Airlie is not open to the public but Mother's Day Brunch to benefit the Fauquier Family Shelter will give you a rare taste of this long standing, hunt country tradition.
Brunch is by advance ticket purchase, only, and part of the ticket price is tax deductible as a donation to the shelter.
The experimental and sustainable kitchens at Airlie are always whipping up the yummy and the unexpected. The staff is young, energetic and cooks their little hearts out.
The huge buffet feast has something for every taste and includes plenty of delicious dishes that just happen to be vegetarian.
You'll feast on local, free range eggs and omelets made to order, crepes stuffed with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, roasted salmon with spring asparagus cream, gilled vegetables, whole wheat pasta with roasted red pepper pesto, slow roasted - cabernet of local beef, salads of organic greens with home made dressings - and dessert, oh the desserts - blackberry cobbler, apple tarts and a host of other tempting, home made treats.
Most of the food served is local with much of the produce coming from their own massive garden and greenhouse. Mom will love it (and you will, too)!
