Group cooking lesson with professional chef

 

ESSEX RESORT & SPA

EAT, LEARN, SAVOR

The Essex's newest restaurant, Junction, will make all your culinary senses sing. Why? Besides the quirky décor – a feast for the eyes – you’ll enjoy the scents and sounds of the open kitchen, the flavors and textures of the creative tasting menus. At Junction, you’ll feel like you’re dining in the Chef’s own home…and in a way, you are.

If you’re in the mood for a casual bite, The Tavern provides the best of traditional pub fare with a selection from an award-winning wine list, an extensive selection of Vermont microbrews, or a specialty cocktail.

For a more hands-on culinary experience, Cook Academy provides the chance to enjoy learning new cooking techniques, or honing the skills you already have. Work alongside an experienced chef as you prepare a delicious meal using local ingredients.
