Breakfast is included in this unique hotel experience and is always fresh and made to order. Guests can enjoy their delicious breakfast in the private dining room, out in the gorgeous courtyard gardens, or served in the comfort of their own room or suite.
Chef Darnell’s passion for cooking began at the age of 10 while learning from his Grandmother. Darnell said, “Grandma made it fun. If you don’t put love and fun into the food when you cook, the food just won’t taste as good”
Chef Darnell enjoys creating new breakfast menu items and gathering fresh ingredients at the Koinonia Organic Farm. He also loves to find new and creative ways to garnish and present his meals. In addition to Darnell’s exemplary cooking skills, he loves spending time with his family and watching sports.
“I love to cook and it is important to get feedback about the food I make.” comments Chef Darnell. Darnell receives the most compliments on his Eggs Benedict. When asked about his secret to perfecting the dish the Chef said, “No secrets. When you like what you do, it turns out right!” Personally, I love the banana pancakes. As a self-proclaimed pancake connoisseur, I can honestly say you won’t taste better in Baltimore!
