Valentine’s Day Special at The Inn at Dos Brisas

Take It To Heart
The Inn at Dos Brisas Beats to its Own for Valentine’s Day
Ground yourself with the best of winter vegetables and roots—delicate leeks and earthy sun chokes, transformed into creamy soups and buttery purées—high level comfort on a plate to enjoy for Valentine’s Day, by the elegant and grand fireplace in the dining room of The Inn at Dos Brisas – the only Forbes five-star rated restaurant in Texas.

This winter alone, over a 100 varieties in the ground, whose evocative names range from Ivory Egg to Lemon Drop to Aunt Ruby’s German Green to the unlikely Royal Hillbilly and slightly sinister sounding Orange Russian 117…three different Brussels sprouts, and 24 carrots [Dragon or Cosmic Purple, anyone?] But wait – that’s not all:  who’d have expected 15 kinds of cauliflower, and 14 kinds of garlic? Even the kohlrabi, leeks and tomatillos enjoy a diversity of at least two varieties in this garden. Lettuces [18 varieties!] include Mascara and Flashy Trout Back; radishes [also numbering 18] include Easter Egg, White Isicle, and Crunchy Royale [that one Kate Middleton should take note of!]  They are all about standing tall and firm as brassicas in the oversized vegetable patch and green house this time of year—which no doubt, will be appreciated among the dining guests.

Who better to call upon for a culinary experience on Valentine’s Day than one of the brightest chefs in America? Here at The Inn at Dos Brisas, a newcomer to this region, highly acclaimed and James Beard Award winning chef, Craig Shelton, focuses on his love of cuisine to bring passion and romance with recipes full of aphrodisiac ingredients.  Shelton partners his seductive choices with home grown organic vegetables, seafood, poultry, and of course, chocolate….
