While our good friend and budding B&B owner was serving as innkeeper for the past week, Wendy was in New York City for the World Series and attending The International Culinary Center’s Hungarian Pastries Course. Wendy’s artistic talent and passion for food came together in this course and her success in pastry is due to her mastery of techniques and a highly creative mind. Now at the Fulton House, you can expect to sample the delights of our homemade breakfast breads and pastries with an international flair.
Prior to being served the main freshly prepared main dish, our guests have enjoyed granola or premium dry cereal with fresh fruit and two yogurts, vanilla and plain. There’ll still be two yogurts to go along with the granola and fresh fruit but now our guest can now enjoy a homemade Hungarian pastry or Artisan Bread. We know our guests will enjoy these delights of homemade breakfast breads and pastries.
Secondly, in addition to freshly ground and brewed coffee, both regular and decaf, and a wide variety of teas, guests during the holiday seasons will also be able to choose hot chocolate or apple cider. Rich hot chocolate made at The Fulton House is most definitely not just for kids.
Also, Wendy a trained and certified Home Economics Instructor will be attending the CIA this spring for a Boot Camp where she will refine her skills and fundamentals of pastry and the techniques used in creating basic preparations such as laminated dough, pastry creams, crème anglaise, pâte à choux (éclairs and profiteroles), mousses and bavarians, sponge cakes, and buttercreams and tarts.
Finally, although it’s not part of our breakfast menu, during the holiday seasons, our guests can come out to our patio or porch (if it’s wet out, we’ll use the living room and dining room), for some holiday cookies and treats in a variety of flavors. These will be served at 3:00 p.m., or if you are out shopping or enjoying Portland during that time the extras will be located on our self-serve buffet. Help yourself!
We know you’ll enjoy these additions to the already outstanding fare at The Fulton House.
