#111 Chesapeake Breakfasts
Solomons Island & Tilghman Island, Maryland
The town of Solomons, including the Back Creek Inn, and the town
of Tilghman, including the Tilghman Island Inn.
Country Ham with Fried Green Tomatoes
The spotlight is on Chesapeake Bay getaways with a visit to two
of the finest inns in the region and a sampling of their breakfasts.
The Back Creek Inn was ours during the taping, as we filled up the
entire house. And no one was complaining either, as it has beautiful
rooms. The first morning we witnessed a beautiful sunrise from the
inn's pier; the second morning Marlene & Terry awoke early to
capture it, but it was cloudy! In Tilghman, we taped the recipe
despite the vocal interruptions of Blanche deBoid, the inn's bird,
who had a few things to say--except when we put the cameras on her.
Turns out it wouldn't have mattered: the audio for the recipe was
bad, and John had to record a voiceover later on to narrate the
action. One of our favorite "inside jokes" is on this
show: there's a pig cutting board in the background when John is
cooking up the ham recipe.
