Magazine honours culinary retreat


Fairburn Farm Culinary Retreat and Guesthouse near Duncan has been listed as one of the 45 most memorable cooking vacations in the world in the May issue of Gourmet magazine. To celebrate, the operator of the retreat, Mara Jernigan, will host some special events.

Sunday at 1 p.m., a sixcourse, Venturi-Schulze Vineyard winemaker’s lunch will be served. The meal, an Italian-style feast, will take place on the picturesqu­e veranda of the farm and feature new wine releases from VenturiSch­ulze. Cost is $85 per person plus tax and gratuity.

This summer Fairburn Farm will also offer field-totable cooking classes. Participan­ts help harvest ingredient­s for a summer feast served with local wine. Once the picking is done, they take a break and snack on pizza cooked in an outdoor brick oven, before tying on their aprons and helping to prepare the main feast. Classes take place Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and cost $135 per person plus tax. To book a spot for the lunch or a cooking class call 250-746-4637.
