Join Executive Pastry Chef Tanya Matta at The Lodge on Friday, Feb. 28, for an exclusive six-course tasting event—The Roots of Sweetness!

Utilizing locally grown root vegetables, we’ll begin with savory tastes and progress into sweeter desserts, all accompanied by wines that complement these distinct (and often underappreciated) ingredients. You’ll learn from Chef Tanya about the preparation and inspiration for each dish, while our sommelier will discuss the wine selections and pairing approach. Get ready to marvel as the following veggies shine in this communal dining experience!

Radish

A flashy version of its spring counterpart, the winter radish is “a protest against the monotony of the cold.” Watermelon radish arugula, goat cheese, orange, mint

Sunchoke

Also known as the sunroot or the earth apple, we call it “the darling of winter.” White truffle panna cotta, roasted sunchokes, parmesan tuile

Carrot

Long and tapered, this root vegetable is striking and sweet—truly a star! Carrot cake, ginger streusel, candied carrots, carrot orange sorbet

Sweet Potato

Behold the vibrant, violet, purple powerhouse. Purple sweet potato pudding cake, toasted meringue, vanilla tuile, candied pecans

Beet

Magical, earthy—and alluring, thanks to its deep wine-red coloring. Chocolate cremeux, candied beets, chocolate crumble, port reduction

Last Bites

Earl Grey shortbread Candied ginger, almond and dark chocolate mendicant
