Our recipe for Double Orange Scones were featured on the menu of a special event at The University of Georgia. We were contacted by the Food Services Department at The University of Georgia requesting that we submit a recipe for their 2nd Annual Event “A Sunset Breakfast — Dawn Inspired Dishes Served at Dusk”. We submitted our recipe for Glazed Double Orange Scones which is a favorite of our guests.
The focus of the special event on October 13, 2011 was to give students at the University of Georgia the dining experience of breakfast at Bed and Breakfast establishments from across the United States. The full menu featured 21 recipes from prominent Bed and Breakfast locations and was served to 8,700 hungry students in four dining commons.
Some of the other breakfast items that were included in this special sunset breakfast are Pumpkin Pancakes from the 1882 Aleksander House Bed and Breakfast in Louisville, KY, Gruyere Bacon and Ham Strata from the Korner Kottage in Suttons Bay, MI, Pineapple Zucchini Bread from Runnymede Country Inn in Fredericksburg, TX and Minted Fruit Salad from Amado Territory Inn from Amado, AZ. We’ve included a picture of the full menu!
The University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia received the Loyal E. Horton Menu Award from the National Association of College and University Food Services competing against more than 600 other institutions. Visit them online at www.uga.edu/foodservice.
