The Essex Resort and Spa in Essex, Vermont is a luxury resort which has the usual elements like a pool and fitness room as well as culinary classes and dining. We sat kitchen-side at Junction, where you experience Triple-A, Four Diamond and Wine Spectator award cuisine in a causal atmosphere. Watching and interactive with the chefs was a definite highlight. We enjoyed scallops, lamp and duck… all perfectly presented. As well as some fabulous deserts. Not only did they prepare us a great meal, they answered all of our questions and were entertaining as well.
This might sound strange, but make sure to check out the ceiling of the restaurant. The dessert portions were very generous.
The next day my daughter and I attended their Sunday Brunch Culinary class at the Cook Academy. We were taught how to poach eggs like champs for crab Cakes Eggs Benedict. The chef was very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend a stay at the The Essex Resort and Spa in Essex, Vermont.
