Yesterday, the votes were tallied and the winner of our first annual Breakfast Recipe Challenge was announced. The victorious dish was bittersweet chocolate waffles topped with mint buttercream and strawberry sauce from the Lyttleton Inn in Littleton, MA. The dish is pictured below, and you can view the recipe here. Congrats Mary!
Overall, we received nearly 100 recipes from innkeepers all over the world. A team of BedandBreakfast.com employees, along with the help of guest judges Danielle Contray of Budget Travel and Helen Anders of The Austin American-Statesman, narrowed them down to The Savory Sixteen. The contest took place on Facebook. Our fans voted on the recipes, which went head-to-head in match-ups until one winner remained. We're thrilled that we were able to spread awareness one of the best benefits of staying at a B&B--the delicious homemade breakfast!
We're also proud to announce that four Diamond Collection members made the final 16. They are:
- Mill House Inn in East Hampton, NY
- Forty Putney Road Bed & Breakfast in Brattleboro, VT
- Hartstone Inn & Hideaway in Camden, ME
- Casa Laguna Inn & Spa in Laguna Beach, CA
Thanks to all the innkeepers for sharing their recipes and to all the travelers for voting!
