CHARRED OAKS INN'S CALENDAR SAYS FIRST SATURDAY IN MAY IS KENTUCKY DERBY DAY

In the Horse Capital of the World, also known as the Greater Lexington-Louisville, Kentucky area, on the calendar the first Saturday in May is written in stone: Kentucky Derby Day. Folks come from across the country and around the world to witness "the greatest two minutes in sports!" Our friends at Churchill Downs tell us that there are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. It's rich traditions - sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing "My Old Kentucky Home" - transcend the Kentucky Derby from just a sporting event, making it a celebration of southern culture and a true icon of Americana. The Ke

#NATIONALBLUEBERRYPIEDAY PROVIDES INSPIRATION FOR CHARRED OAKS INN DESSERT

Charred Oaks Inn, a Select Registry bed and breakfast, minutes from Downtown Lexington, Kentucky is closed temporarily due to Covid-19 and what it takes to help keep staff and guests safe. Under normal circumstances, innkeeper, Pamela Byrne Riley, is responsible for preparing not only the inn's delectable, made-to-order breakfasts, but the homemade desserts offered each evening. They range from chocolate orange tortes to lemon drizzle cake or a Kentucky Bourbon pie. During the #HealthyAtHome stay in the Bluegrass state, Pamela has put the downtime to good use. She has developed several new breakfast entrees and starters and has expanded her dessert repertoire. Today is #NationalBlueberryPi

CHARRED OAKS INN'S INNKEEPERS DISCOVER #DALGONA COFFEE!!!!!!

Dalgona Coffee also known as Whipped Coffee or Korean Whipped Coffee is nothing short of amazing, not too mention delicious! As many of you know, Richard and I are fans of Starbucks frappes (and actually have a made-to-order coffee frappe called the Riley Special at our favorite of favorite Starbucks at the corner of Parkers Mill Road and Versailles Road in Lexington), but with the #HealthyAtHome call here in Kentucky, our store was closed temporarily and we are hunkered down at the inn. So, we decided to experiment with creating a coffee drink to not replace, but satisfy that occasional craving. Enter Dalgona Coffee! Dalgona Coffee is a beverage (we prefer the term coffee flavored air) ma

AT CHARRED OAKS INN ON ARBOR DAY THIS TREE IS FOR YOU ...

"Other holidays repose upon upon the past; Arbor Day proposes for the future." ~ J. Sterling Morton Arbor Day began in 1872 in Nebraska City, Nebraska. It is estimated that nearly one million trees were planted at that time. The purpose of Arbor Day is to encourage people to plant trees - both forest trees and fruit trees. At Charred Oaks Inn, we love trees!

CHARRED OAKS INN FEATURES NEW SIGNATURE BREAKFAST ON #NationalEggsBenedictDay

Today is National Eggs Benedict Day. Eggs Benedict is a favorite breakfast or brunch dish featuring poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce, Canadian bacon or ham on toasted English Muffin halves. There are two versions of how this dish came about: one in the early 18th century involving Pope Benedict XIII and the other in the late 1800's involving a stockbroker, Lemuel Benedict, and his specially ordered breakfast at the Waldorf Hotel. Restaurants around the country serve their own versions substituting bacon, salmon, lobster or corned beef for the Canadian bacon; adding sliced tomatoes, wilted spinach or steamed asparagus; or replacing the English muffin with toast, bagels, or waffles.

CHARRED OAKS INN TAKES ONE DAY AT A TIME ...

Dear Friends of Charred Oaks Inn, These are definitely challenging and difficult times. As such we are faced with the need to make life altering decisions on a day-by-day basis. Here at COI, Richard and I care about our guests and their experiences while visiting the Bluegrass state, but just as importantly, we care about their safety and well being.

This was by no means an easy decision to make but we feel that it is the socially responsible choice and one that will support a more favorable long- term outcome for all concerned. We are monitori
