Epicurean Escape On San Juan Island

Foodie travelers, pack your bags for an indulgent experience in Friday Harbor.

This winter, the Island Inn at 123 West and Duck Soup Inn have joined forces offer guests a series of exclusive cooking classes, hosted by Chef Gretchen Allison. The Epicurean Escape package is a weekend-long getaway focused on food and fun.

Celebrate the New Year by preparing a memorable feast on Friday, Dec. 30. The menu includes duck breast, wild mushroom bread pudding and cardamon crepes. If you can’t make it for New Year’s, a traditional East Indian cooking class will be taught on Saturday, Jan. 21. On the menu: lamb curry, fresh chutney and saffron rice.

Epicurean Escapees prepare a full feast under the direction of a renowned local chef. Each package also includes penthouse accommodations for two, a bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival and all the required gear and ingredients for the class, as well as a takeaway recipe for each dish prepared.

Ranging from comfortable penthouses and sleek, Euro-style guestrooms, each room at the inn includes such amenities as luxury linens, a steam shower, fireplace and fully-equipped kitchen — not to mention a stunning view of the harbor.

Rates for the Epicurean Escape start at $249 per night, and the promotion requires a minimum two-night stay. Reservations can be made online.
