A former gardener for Emerson Creek Pottery and Tearoom, Tina Scott has helped preserve the beautiful landscape of our countryside while also serving as a cook in the Tearoom kitchen since it opened in 2005. Tina's motto is to ``make fresh and what you have on hand.`` This belief is translated into the deliciously fresh meals that she prepares. Tina enjoys the process of creating a variety or home-cooked meals from scratch with desserts being her specialty. When visiting our Tearoom, enjoy a slice of her heavenly Pumpkin Pecan Pie.
Ruth Cusack learned from an early age the pleasure of serving simply prepared food that is cooked from fresh and natural ingredients. She brings her cooking intuition to our Tearoom kitchen, as well as our Blog, as she is one of our cooks since 2008. Ruth acknowledges her Nonni and Auntie Lana as the inspirational people whom she has learned the important value of patience in the kitchen from in order to create delicious meals. Cooking from the heart, Ruth has shared many of her recipes for the first time in our Emerson Creek Cookbook, and considers it a privilege to see it become a reality.
Terri Stunkel's first brush with the joy of cooking originated at the age of twelve when she was growing up with six other siblings. Although she enjoyed convenience based cuisine in her own childhood household, it was years later when her own son was diagnosed with diabetes which propelled her into creating healthy meals from scratch. As one of our cooks, she enjoys serving healthy comfort food to our customers in the beautiful surroundings of the Tearoom.
"Absolutely lovely place! Such a treat every time I visit!"
"This is the perfect place to go with a group of girlfriends, or a mom and daughter lunch. There is so much charm to this farm house restaurant."
"The soup was heavenly. I was able to snag a bite of my sisters chocolate mousse pie and peach cobbler before it was devoured in 2 minutes. Desserts were phenomenal. While the quality of the food was outstanding."
"Home cooking at its best. Everything is fresh and flavorful. Simple menu appetizers, salads sandwiches and hot entree."
"Such a wonderful destination! Loads of charm, great food, nice people, and beautiful scenery. I can't wait to go back!"
"Such a great, welcoming place to relax and unwind. A perfect brunch spot. We love their strawberry lemonade! And their adorable and charming gift shop is a must!"
Emerson Creek is a uniquely heirloom variety, and so it is the intent of its’ owners to provide an opportunity to return to tradition, and share this beautiful segment of countryside with others. It is a welcoming place to share experiences- it took 10 years, in the life of our Tearoom, to be able to share these recipes. It is with gratitude to extend our beautiful grounds, and now some of our wholesome, delectable recipes with you in our Emerson Creek Cookbook.
