Hope and Glory Chef on a Culinary Sabbatical for Four Weeks

The Hope and Glory Inn’s Chef Meseret Crockett is on leave for a four-week culinary sabbatical to team up with French Chef Lil Lacassagne of The Burke Manor Inn and its restaurant, Saint Jacques which is a Four Diamond-rated restaurant. Prior to Saint Jacques, Chef Lil served for eight years in Michelin Star restaurants and one of the restaurants he owned in Raleigh was named one of the “Top 100 in America”.

Chef Lil and his wife Lori own The Burke Manor Inn which is conveniently located in the Piedmont Triad (20 minutes from Greensboro and 10 minutes from Burlington) and is a member of Select Registry as is the Hope and Glory.

Chef Meseret is excited about bringing back an enhanced skill set in cooking a la the French which no doubt will be reflected in her Winter menus.

Stay tuned for French fine dining at the Hope and Glory starting mid-December.

While she is away during November, we will be offering our Saturday Night Romantic Dinner Package which is $275 plus tax and service charge which is in addition to the cost of overnight accommodations for two nights. The package is a Coq au Vin Pinot Noir dinner for two served in your cottage with flowers, candlelight – all within a romantically draped canopy.

The chicken will be braised with Pinot Noir, pancetta, locally sourced mushrooms, onions, and thyme with a hint of garlic. Accompaniments will be haricot verts and creamy mashed potatoes. Add to that a bottle of our Chef’s favorite French sparkling wine; and, Godiva chocolates to sweeten your plate.
