If you have visited any of our shops or stayed in our Inn, you may have noticed a little yellow book propped on the counter for sale or lying on a coffee table next to your room’s plush sofa. That familiar yellow book is none other than The Fearrington House Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Flowers, and Herbs, written by R.B. Fitch’s late wife Jenny Fitch and illustrated by Dovecote’s merchandising manager Daneen Eaton.
The Fearrington House Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Flowers, and Herbs
Arranged by season and celebration, this all-inclusive book offers everything you need for an aesthetically pleasing and happy kitchen. With beautifully crafted recipes that have graced the tables of The Fearrington House Restaurant over the years, suggestions on flower arrangements and tips on utilizing your home garden to its fullest potential.
Acknowledging her Southern roots, Jenny’s cookbook seamlessly pairs “down-home cooking” with the luxury we know today at The Fearrington House Inn and Restaurant. Skim through the pages while you relax in a suite during your stay, and you will begin to notice Jenny’s inspiration in the gardens and flowers throughout the Village. With Jenny’s cookbook, you can bring the delicious flavors of Fearrington to your own dinner table. As an Inn guest, there is nothing like having fresh pastries at our full gourmet breakfast made that morning. So why not try your hand at the Miniature Bran Muffins, found under the “Morning Coffee” section of recipes and fill your family’s breakfast plate.
