As I begin each morning here, my fresh squeezed orange juice is delicious along side their daily fruit assortment. This morning's being fresh, juicy blueberries served either with the Elmwood's Classic Orange Yogurt Sauce or heavy cream. Since I have a very difficult time deciding when given two delicious options, my Photographer and I decided to each get a different style and try it both ways. The blueberries are cream are really an old-fashioned delight which suits the era of this home. Charmingly uncomplicated, yet rare and decadent, I will be trying this little trick back at home! Of course, the familiar orange yogurt sauce I've come to love during my stay lent it self delightfully to this dish with the sweet flavor of blueberries and tangy citrus coming together in a pleasant, gentle combination on the palate
The main today is a delicacy that excites and breakfast enthusiast and has a reputation of being one of the most popularly elegant breakfasts that one can find. Eggs Benedict! A toasty English muffin meets rustic ham, a velvety poached egg, all crowned with rich, thick hollandaise sauce and crisp chives! Not only is this a popularly favorite breakfast but it happens to be my own personal favorite and the way the Elmwood prepared it, I feel like I'm looking at my favorite breakfast through a new, deliciously tinted lens. The hollandaise was so creamy that I couldn't help making sure that there wasn't a bit left on the plate, it hit a balance of flavors that is so coveted in the world of french sauce making. The poached egg was prepared perfectly with a golden yolk, the ham came through with it's natural flavors that compliment this whole dish together. Farm fresh taste meets this gourmet all-time favorite in a way that you have to taste to believe.

I urge anyone and everyone to come, stay at the Elmwood and enjoy all of this amazingness for yourselves, it's that once in a lifetime sort of thing... That is of course unless you book another night and then you can relive perfect over and over and over again~
