Happy Easter

I’d like to share with you photos from today’s Easter Brunch at Rosario Resort & Spa. Executive Chef Lutz and his staff put on quite a feast! First, let me say the Easter Bunny really does exist, as evidenced by this first photo. For those of you that boat to Orcas Island and the Rosario Marina, you may recognize our dockhand Erik Hansen!

Erik was joining his family, hosted by former Rosario owner Sarah Geiser (center back), and Rosario’s next door neighbor Kay Whiting (foreground, left).

The Tapa and Starter table was elegant!

The highlight was the incredible Poached Salmon.

Chef Lutz presents the Salmon on Saffron Cream.

It’s always nice to see so many Orcas Island residents (“locals”) enjoying the brunch, including Rosario founder Robert Moran’s great granddaughter Patty Moran-Hodge (with husband Terry) and their children Winslow and Melissa (Robert Moran’s great, great grandchildren!!!).

Banquet Chef Greg Naylor mans the carving and omelet station.

Finally, Pastry Chef Felicity Milne once again outdid herself with a huge chocolate Easter Sculpture featuring the Easter Bunny (with carrots in the garden) and a newly hatch Easter Chick! As I was playing the piano a few feet away, I can attest that the dessert table was always crowded!
