Herbal Luncheon - Triple Oaks

One of the highlights of our recent Traveling Herb Seminar to Cape May was the herbal luncheon at Triple Oaks Herb Shop and Nursery in Franklinville, NJ.   They squeezed our large group into their workshop/crafting room. We loved the pretty dried flowers hanging over head and the perfect herbal tablecloths and herb dishes that were used.

Already on the table were fresh flowers from the garden and a soft herb flavored butter.

This bountiful feast began with a variety of fresh greens and homemade salad dressing.  We were also offered some sangria and a fresh mint tea.

It was a cozy and relaxed setting that everyone enjoyed.

A rich mushroom soup was served next.  This had a 8 different mushrooms in the soup and was very flavorful.
After being served the salad and soup we rose table by table to go to the bountiful buffet. Scalloped potatos, Red Beets with orange rind, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli, Rosemary Green Beans, Pulled Pork, Chicken and much more was offered to us.

Everyone could choose what appealed to them.  Many on our Traveling Herb Seminar felt this was the best meal of the trip. 
 Dessert was also offered and included a wide selection to choose from:  cakes, pies, tarts, and cookies all made with fresh herbs or spices.
