We've borrowed  recipes from friends around the world to share good food with you.

Breakfast review from Trip Advisor: Surpassed every expectation!My wife and I spent two nights at the Baxter House as part of a surprise weekend to celebrate a special birthday. The place itself is an artfully reimagined older home with every comfort and amenity you could expect in a B&B. It is light-filled and tasteful - designed by a very talented architect. Beautiful large windows, fresh high-quality bedding and linens - and a second floor bath where you could spend a whole weekend luxuriating. Our hosts Katleen and Matt were warm, kind and entertaining. When I made our reservation, Kathleen asked if we had any special dietary requests for breakfast. i explained that my wife is vegan and she agreed to accommodate. Well - "accommodate" turned out to be an understatement! The first morning, we were treated to Migas - a freshly prepared mixture of tofu (for my wife) eggs (for me) with jalapenos, sweet onions, tumeric, grape seed oil, cumin, cilantro and green chile seasoning. In addition, we had a plate of fresh avocados, tomatoes and onions with EVO and seasonings. And...Zingermans Dunkelbrot bread with homemade rhubarb preserves. And...locally roasted fresh coffee and herbal teas. The second morning, we enjoyed a warm black rice with vegan yogurt, pineapple, mango, freshly toasted coconut and slivered almonds. And - soft and hard boiled eggs to order, accompanied with homemeade blackberry muffins and lemon curd topping. (we smelled the muffins baking as soon as we woke!) We also received an A2 visitors' parking pass. Not that we needed it, because Baxter House is in easy walking distance to Kerrytown and downtown. Our hosts also provided us with newspapers, magazines and other resources about local music , entertainiment , cultural and dining options. And...with geniunely fun conversation about food, music (Kathleen plays in a uke band) and life. If you are looking for a place to get away or a place to hang your hat while on business - this is one that you can't miss. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kathleen and Matthew for making our weekend one to remember! We'll be back. January 2019
