The Washington Hotel in Wisconsin


The Washington Hotel, Restaurant and Culinary School

Loaves of bread at The Washington Hotel, Restaurant and Culinary School
This century-old hotel in Wisconsin was renovated in 2001, but still retains its Old-World charm. Located just a short ferry ride from the tip of the Door County Peninsula, the culinary school here is the perfect cooking vacation for those with a commitment to local, sustainable and organic products. Even the hotel's linens are made from organic cottons. Cooking classes and guided tastings emphasize local foods and are helmed by chef Leah Caplan, who has been traveling the Asian and European continents since she was five years old. Caplan will teach you how to use Washington Island-grown wheat to make buttermilk doughnuts, brick-oven breads and smoked whitefish pizza. Yummy!
