LEXINGTON, Mass., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Inn at Hastings Park, a luxury and historic member of Ocean House Management (OHM) Collection, announces the launch of the Whispering Angel Culinary Garden this month, in partnership with the world’s most celebrated rosé.
The Inn at Hastings Park has reopened with renewed purpose as an immersive food and wine destination. Educational programming will focus on teaching cooking techniques, connecting guests to local farms, and celebrating wine in collaboration with Provence’s Château d’Esclans, the birthplace of Whispering Angel.
The Whispering Angel Culinary Garden is tucked between the Inn’s main building and its masterfully restored barn. Centered around a large, wood farm table and rustic seating with blush accents, the exclusive culinary garden is enclosed by a wood and wire fence with sheltering trees just beyond—creating a magical, natural setting with twinkling lights strung above. During outdoor cooking classes, guests interact with beds of herbs, root vegetables, and edible flowers, depending on the season. Providing an element of glamour, Whispering Angel is served in a specially curated selection of crystal wine glasses – because everything tastes better in Baccarat.
Owner Trisha Pérez Kennealy will share her passion for teaching others how to cook by assuming a new role as Culinary Educator, “We’re pleased to introduce programs that encourage a sense of community and human connection. Meals bring us together, and nutritious food can impact our health and wellbeing.” She continued, “I’m so excited to partner with esteemed winemaker Château d’Esclans as we launch this new chapter for the Inn at Hastings Park. Our vision is to combine education with fun, ensuring a hospitality experience that is delicious and memorable.”
Paul Chevalier, Global Marketing Director of Château d’Esclans shares his excitement about the partnership, “I was very fortunate as a young winemaker many years ago to have been invited to Julia Child’s house on Irving Street in Cambridge. What a fantastic lady! We hope to recreate a little of Julia’s magic in this Whispering Angel Culinary Garden.”
The Culinary Garden is a gathering place for families, friends and colleagues, accommodating up to 12 people for each seating. Continuing the Inn’s commitment to community, the intimate space will also be used for fundraising events with local organizations. Ms. Pérez Kennealy will host interactive cooking lessons and meals, featuring dishes inspired by Whispering Angel. The seasonal menu includes Corn Chowder and Brussels Sprouts Grilled Cheese, with Peach Spoon Cake dessert, and dinner specials such as Sun-Dried Tomato and Eggplant Pizzettes, and Baby Lamb Chops with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.
Ms. Pérez Kennealy will also offer experiential cooking weekends, interactive classes as well as private virtual lessons – all from the Inn’s beautifully decorated living room. The Inn’s signature restaurant Town Meeting Bistro is now reopened to serve lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch with select dishes designed to be paired with Whispering Angel.
