New Book by Relais & Châteaux Gives Tips for Creating Exquisite Affairs

NORTH HATLEY, Quebec and CAMBRIDGE, Ontario,, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 

For the first time, the hospitality experts at Relais & Châteaux are sharing their secrets for creating unforgettable celebrations at home. The Art of Entertaining Relais & Châteaux: Menus, Flowers, Table Settings, and More for Memorable Celebrations (Rizzoli, September 27, 2016) features recipes, table settings and more, mixed in with lush photos and fascinating peeks into the rich history of the distinguished Relais and Châteaux collection of fine independent hotels and restaurants.

Two leading Canadian hotels, Langdon Hall and Manoir Hovey, are among the properties featured in this compilation of 17 seasonal party themes, and both are offering special packages for the fall travel season.
"Langdon Hall has been a member of Relais and Châteaux for 25 years, so we are delighted to be included in The Art of Entertaining," explains Bill Bennett, owner of Langdon Hall. "The book is a beautiful representation of all the participating properties." Adds Jason Stafford, managing director of Manoir Hovey, "We are honored to have our Autumn Colors Celebration as part of this wonderful book, which celebrates the diverse and unique experiences offered by the finest Relais & Châteaux hotels in North America."
Langdon Hall: Gilded Age Splendor and an Olmsted Garden The fabled Gilded Age gardens at Langdon Hall, designed by John Charles Olmsted, are the setting for a Long Table Lunch featured in the book. The garden's bounty is showcased in the innovative menu by Executive Chef Jason Bangerter: Trout Mousseline with Zucchini Flowers and a Sweet Pea PureeHeritage Hen with Mushrooms; and a Beet Negroni that puts a garden-fresh twist on a classic cocktail.
Langdon Hall is offering a Gilded Age Splendor Getaway for two that includes one night's accommodation, three-course dinner, cooking demonstration, a signed copy of "The Art of Entertaining" and a country breakfast for two. Available from October 10th through December 16th. (Midweek: $760; weekend: $855 CAD)
Built in 1902 by the great grandson of John Jacob Astor, Langdon Hall underwent an extensive renovation in 2016, adding eight new guest rooms, a new spa, and a spacious new event venue.
Manoir Hovey: Lakeside Autumn Charm and an Edible Chocolate Forest Manoir Hovey, built in 1900 and modeled after historic Mount Vernon, invites guests to step back to a simpler time against a birch-forest backdrop with stunning views of Lake Massawippi. The year-round retreat is featured in "The Art of Entertaining" with an alfresco Autumn Colors Celebration.  
The menu includes a Mouzette cocktail, Swordfish Cru with Pine Mushrooms, Celtuce and Sea Lettuce; Venison with Beets and Sea Rocket Berriesand ends with a Chocolate Landscape, a whimsical edible forest blooming with elderberry-flavored "lichen" and "mushrooms" made of meringue. These are presented on a ground of chocolate crumbs and dark chocolate "rocks."
The authentic, regional cuisine of Chef Francis Wolf draws from ingredients found in the Quebec countryside, with innovative uses of local foraged items, as well as birch syrup tapped from trees on the Manoir Hovey property.
Travelers can experience firsthand the beauty of the property and the surrounding region with Manoir Hovey's Chants, Cheeses & Wine Package. It includes one night's accommodations for two, a four-course dinner, full breakfast, a tour of the Abbey St. Benoit-du-Lac with gourmet picnic on the grounds, a tasting at a local winery, a tour and tasting at a local cheese producer, and a signed copy of "The Art of Entertaining."
