Winter is almost behind us, but I wanted to share a few photos from my trip to Ashland for the Ashland Culinary Festival in November. I stayed at the Iris Inn and spent the weekend enjoying the cooking competition, sampling the food and drinks at the festival, and taking in the mid-century modern decor at the Ashland Hills Hotel.
Aside from the festival, I had the opportunity to visit Irvine & Roberts Vineyard to try their amazing chardonnay with a priceless view. The culinary highlight was dinner at Mäs for the seven-course tasting menu. It had been years since I’d visited Ashland, best known for the Shakespeare Festival, but loved the opportunity to see it at the end of autumn and can’t wait to return hopefully next year for the culinary festival.
