3rd Annual Fleur Delicious Weekend

June 27th, 2013 by Sam Feldman

A fairly new weekend festival has really taken off in popularity, called Fleur Delicious Weekend, a French-themed festival, with a street fair atmosphere. Its intent is to celebrate all of the senses: Taste, smell, sight, touch and sound! Restaurants, bars, art galleries, boutiques, spas and music venues all participate with French-inspired indulgences in food, wine, spirits, art and entertainment. That includes us here at the Bridgeford House Bed and Breakfast, where we will feature French-themed cuisine in our morning menu. (And, of course, we will feature Sophie, the German dog with the French name!)

Enjoy some cool refreshing drinks

Events start out early on Wednesday, July 3, with the Ciroc Vodka Bartender Competition. Things really start hopping in Eureka starting Thursday, July 11th. Check out the entire schedule. (We’re particularly excited about Frankie the Monkey coming back that weekend to star in the show at Intrigue Theater – he steals all the thunder!).

The Stonehouse Wine Bar will be featuring a “Regions of France” wine tasting Thursday, Friday and Saturday that weekend – and the Stonehouse by itself is worth the visit! Another major favorite of ours is the Grand Tavern, featuring special menu items and French wines all weekend (in addition to all their other fabulous food!), as well as DeVito’s (although normally Italian), who does a personality change for the weekend, serving a special Fleur Delicious menu and French wine flights (in addition to the regular wonderful food, of course).

Come join us that weekend – park your car for the duration and walk around our lovely town, enjoying the sights, sounds, smells, touch and – most especially – the taste France! And a special bonus – the Grand Illumination event will run in conjunction with Fleur Delicious, featuring tons of Oriental silk and paper lanterns (including our B&B!) decorating our lovely Victorian architecture, all over town.

We love hanging out the lanterns during the Grand Illumination!

Try Something New for Breakfast – Cheese Blintzes

May 22nd, 2013 by Sam Feldman

Cheese Blintzes

Cheese Blintzes from Bridgeford House Bed and Breakfast

Crepe Batter:
2 TB salad oil
2 eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
(makes 6-7 crepes)

Cheese filling:
1/4 pound cream cheese
2 egg yolks
1/4 pound cottage cheese
2 TB sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
(makes enough filling for 6-7 crepes)

Beat eggs, oil, and milk. Add flour and salt, beating until very smooth. Chill 30 minutes; it should be like heavy cream. If too thick, add a little milk. Grease hot skillet with light coating of butter. Pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter into the skillet, turning pan to coat it. Fry lightly on one side. Repeat with remaining batter. Stack crepes on waxed paper, brown side up.

Beat filling ingredients together until smooth. Fill each crepe with 2 heaping tablespoons of filling, fruit or seafood, and roll up egg style by folding in sides of crepe over filling. May be frozen at this point, then fried without defrosting. Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat in large skillet. Fry crepes until golden brown on all sides.

Enjoy!

Warmest regards,

Fleur Delicious Weekend Recipe

July 8th, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Since Fleur Delicious weekend is coming up next weekend, July 13 & 14th, we wanted to include one of our French-style recipes that we’ll be making for our guests:

Cheesy Apple Quiche

1 pie crust, unbaked
2 apples, peeled and sliced (I use Granny Smith)At the Bridgeford House B&B for Fleur Delicious Weekend
1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tb sugar
2 tb butter

Saute apple slices in a large saucepan with the butter, sugar and cinnamon for about 5-10 minutes, until slices are tender. Meanwhile, whisk together the whipping cream and eggs until well blended. Place apples in the bottom of the pie crust and cover with the cheese. Pour egg mixture over apples and cheese. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven about 35 minutes or until completely set. Let cool about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Serves 6

Happy eating!

Great New Food Festival Coming to Eureka Springs!

May 22nd, 2011 by Sam Feldman

You know we’re all about shopping, visiting spas and galleries, spending time in the great outdoors that surrounds beautiful Eureka Springs – and eating! Well, now we have a new celebration that’s all about the senses:  sight, hearing, smell, touch and of course, taste! A French-themed weekend complete with a street fair atmosphere is planned for July 7-10, 2011. “Fleur Delicious” weekend is sure to be a hit. It is expected that lodging, retail and gift shops, spas, restaurants, galleries and entertainment venues will all be participating.

Look for French-themed food (we have found a great recipe for an apple quiche and best-ever strawberry crepes…really, that’s the name of the recipe!), special French wine dinners out at some of our great restaurants, Sunday Jazz brunches, cafe crawls/coffee tastings and maybe sometime impromptu French picnics in Basin Park. Look for all kinds of French entertainment downtown, maybe some Cabaret or Cancan, face painting, mimes, jugglers, artists (of course!), cooking demonstrations, and a French-themed Sunday night movie in Basin Park.

There will be contests, such as the Waiter’s Race, Bartender competition, pooch parade/costume contest, and storefront window decorations.

This will be the first year for this festival, so who knows what to expect! But it’s bound to be glorious, silly French fun, with a lot of surprises thrown in.

Come join us!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too! (German dog with a French name????)
