Off the beaten path, stumble into a foodies paradise. I am visiting some friends who live in nearby Cornish and we went for dinner at Home Hill Inn. Bucolic setting, lush green pastures, horses
Donkeys, gardens traditional white fence and lovely federal style building. Filled with the luminous paintings of Stephen Parish from the Cornish Painters group, the Inn is filled with charming rooms
and dining areas. I admit to having a serious potato chip addiction but I never expected to have a basket of fresh, crisp, delicately salted HOT potato chips served along with the homemade bread basket. Wow! The best! They should start bagging those as Home Hill chips! We ordered
A board of pickled vegetables that was outstanding, jalapeños, dukes, string beans, shallots,
and olives were the perfect balance to the chips. I could have stopped there, but I ordered a Mojito
that had a few sprigs of mint and lime slices and I was able to revive myself from the chip swooning delirium and continue with the meal. The Parisian gnocchi was outstanding as was the fresh green salad with home grown golden beets that were as sweet as sugar and melted in my mouth. The best was for sure saved for last, fresh bing cherry pie with a delectable crust as a base
And a crunchy crumble on top. Served with a dollop of homemade vanilla ice cream, I gorged on,
And rounded off a memorable meal with a lovely cup of African Rooibus tea. This is the type of meal that makes you fall in love with whoever you are with. Bon Appetite indeed!
