DINING AT DUNTON
Our Chefs (Executive Chef, Carrie Eagle and Sous Chef Daniel Sopiwnik) draw on classical training to create a new menu every day using local and regional ingredients, some from our farm and vineyard. In the late summer we gather wild mushrooms, chanterelles and boletus in the surrounding mountains. We all eat at a long, antique table in the center of the Saloon. A tradition from the big cattle outlaws that we choose to maintain. If guests prefer however, we do have the option for guests to dine separately.
The open kitchen is the heart of the old Saloon for everyone to see and enjoy. People love to watch and even help the Chef, as she makes the days fare. We welcome the opportunity to prepare something special, just say the word.
"What I most love about being a chef is being able to facilitate transformative experiences through food," says Carrie. "When guests gather to share a meal, it is an opportunity to connect on one of the most basic and valuable aspects of being a human."
The morning starts when you want. Meander over to the Saloon. You will be greeted by an array of fresh delectables, aromatic coffees and teas, and just-squeezed fruit juices. Our Chef is then ready to prepare whatever you choose.
