Fresh country air. Beautiful landscapes. Delicious food. Three of Philadelphia’s top toques are spending a weekend at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos and you’re invited too. The Taste of Philadelphia weekend offers a unique opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with these three chefs.
Chip Roman, chef/owner of Conshohocken’s Blackfish and Chestnut Hill’s Mica. Philly Mag named Blackfish tops in its list of Philly’s top restaurants (January 2011). In addition, Roman is a finalist in Food &Wine Magazine’s People’s Best New Chef award and he has been nominated for a James Beard Award for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic region.
Patrick Feury, chef/owner of Nectar Restaurant in Berwyn, PA, presides over a kitchen that produces some of the most intriguing Asian fusion cuisine in the world. Patrick has worked in some amazing kitchens, including Peacock Alley in the Waldorf Astoria, Gertrude’s in Paris and he launched Suilan for Susanna Foo in the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa.
David Katz, chef/owner of Meme Restaurant has a knack for transforming the mundane into the memorable. “The flavors aren’t overly exotic. The compositions aren’t contrived. David’s food shows the value of focus, distilling a pair of good ideas on each plate into vivid flavors that put the spotlight on good ingredients,” said Craig LaBan in a Philadelphia Inquirer review of Meme.
In addition to luxurious spa treatments, lazy afternoons by the pool, adventure hikes through wooded trails, skeet shooting, golf and archery, guests can participate in cooking demonstrations and enjoy fabulous food.
Check in on Friday and enjoy a sumptuous dinner. After a bountiful breakfast, hike in the woods and sit back and enjoy the cooking demonstrations followed by afternoon tea. Then dress for dinner. Meet the chefs at an early evening cocktail soiree. And prepare for a memorable meal. Skytop isn’t just a mountain resort; it’s a nostalgic experience that generations of families have enjoyed since 1925.
