Winetrader TV #101: Classic Muskoka Summer Recipes at Sherwood Inn

 Nestled among towering century-old pines at the edge of Muskoka’s sparkling Lake Joseph, for more than 75 years Sherwood Inn has been a Muskoka landmark and offered its guests a genuine and authentic “taste of Muskoka”. Recently we had the privilege to go behind the scenes at Sherwood Inn with General Manager Esa Paltanen and Executive Chef Everett Bell who walked us through the preparation of 3 of their most popular dishes – and then sat down to match them up with the perfect wines. This video offers a step-by-step guide to preparing these three classic Muskoka summer recipes; and you’ll find the detailed recipes themselves immediately below the video window.
