The Washington Examiner - Robert Morris Inn Christmas

Robert Morris Inn - Oxford, Maryland
"In Oxford, America's oldest inn dates back to 1710. This year the historic Robert Morris Inn, recently purchased by British hotelier Ian Fleming, celebrates 300 years in operation. In period-inspired guest rooms you can channel your inner James Michener ... he outlined his sweeping saga "Chesapeake" here overlooking the Tred Avon River.
On Christmas Day renowned international chef and proprietor Mark Salter will serve an eclectic menu of favorites culled from his background in Welsh, Scottish, Engish and French cuisine with dishes like Potato Soup with Lobster and Chives, Oysters Rockefeller with Spinach, Bacon and Parmesan Cheese, Chicken Liver Parfait with Beet Apple Chutney and Toasted Brioche, Seared Scallops with char-grilled Red Onion, Scottish Salmon with French Lentils and Kale, Smoked Bacon and Five-Onion Sauce, Pennsylvania Dutch Turkey and Baked Ham with Sage, Onion and Chestnut stuffing, Grilled Tenderloin of Beef with layered Goat Cheese and Potato and Truffled Celery Root Puree with Madeira-Black Pepper Jus. Desserts beckon with a traditional Christmas pudding, Caramelized Apple and Frangipane Tart and Milk Chocolate Creme Brulee with Hazelnut Shortbread. A jazz band accompanies the lavish five-course New Year's Eve dinner beginning with champagne and canapes."
