If you would like to have chef services to prepare a meal or two for your party while visiting here at Colonial Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia. Karen is available for anything from breakfast to a sit down fine dining experience for your enjoyment
It was once said that nothing brings people together like a common enemy, which is true but not exactly the best way to bring people together. Now food, on the other hand, really can bring many different kinds of people together. Memories will start to be shared, then stories, and soon laughs. Why not enjoy your time with your family and let Karen prepare a meal for you and do the dishes of course!
Karen has a love of both food and bringing people together. So it is easy to see why her B&B was such a success.
Karen is a gourmet cook and can accommodate Vegan, Vegetarian, Low Fat, and gluten/dairy-free diets. Be sure to let us know in advance if you have special dietary requirements!
Karens signature dish is Cream Cheese-stuffed French Toast with Grand Marnier Orange Sauce.
Apple Pie Pancakes – served with apple pie syrup, bacon and cheddar cheese scrambled eggs alongside fresh-cut apple wedges with sliced cheddar.
Blueberry and Ricotta-stuffed French Toast – served with real blueberry syrup, baked cheese-stuffed eggs, link sausage alongside fresh blueberries and cantaloupe covered with a crumbled blueberry white English Stilton cheese.
French Crepes – served with a chocolate spread, fresh strawberries, and bananas topped with strawberry sauce, a hint of fudge sauce, and whipped cream with baked cream eggs and sausage patties alongside a chocolate-dipped strawberry.
Eggs Benedict – served with homemade hollandaise with homegrown tarragon served with seasonal fruit.
Strawberry and Cream Cheese-stuffed Croissant – drizzled with strawberry sauce and then baked for just enough time to melt the cream cheese and strawberries together… of course, it’s served with an egg and meat, but many just can’t see past those croissants!
Lemon Pancake Rolls – these delicate lemon-flavored pancakes are rolled with a mascarpone cheese in the middle and served with fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup on top. Tarragon-laced scrambled egg and link sausage are served on the side for a perfect pairing.
Chocolate French Toast with Raspberry Sauce – It really does not get much better than this. Layers of French toast are lightly browned before a fair amount of bittersweet Godiva chocolate is sandwiched between two of them. Once French toast is brought to a perfect golden brown, a homemade raspberry sauce is drizzled over them and large fresh raspberries are placed on top. Eggs for this dish are baked in cream in the oven to a delicate finish that keeps the egg whole and moist, yet completely cooked. This dish is served with triple-thick Smithfield bacon.
