Kay and Joe have a knack for making you feel at home. We chose A Culinary Experience B and B because of our own love of cooking and good food. We were NOT disappointed! Warm cookies upon our arrival and later hors d'ouvres of green-lipped mussels with rocket pesto served with a glass of Pinot Gris. Besides the delicious and hearty breakfasts, we opted for a gourmet dinner as well with the other guests staying there. I now have Kay's recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu (which I watched her make in her kitchen that afternoon!).
Joe and Kay gave us a tour of their property, which includes vineyards,an herb garden, olive trees and and the Alpaca Hilton, which is home to their 3 beautiful Alpacas. Joe was building a chicken coop while we were there so I imagine that super-fresh eggs are being served with breakfast now! Their beautiful brand-new home is built to give their guests lots of privacy and has spectacular ocean and coastal views.
They are very knowledgeable about the area and gave us many good recommendations based on our conversations with them about what we like to do.The only thing I would do differently next time is to stay longer!
