New Zealand Chef Simon Webster says everybody questioned his opening a restaurant "out in the middle of nowhere" in East Texas. But the move has proved to be everything he dreamed it would be.
"Sabor A Pasion" is a country retreat bed and breakfast with bistro located on Anderson County Road 406. Out of the way though it is, patrons from Dallas, Houston, and throughout East Texas seem to find it. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at the bistro Thursday through Sunday by reservation.
Chef Simon also teaches cooking classes at the retreat and at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens. His next classes at Trinity Valley, "Just Desserts" will be January 30th and February 16th. The traditional and delicious "New Zealand Pavlova", named after the famous ballerina will be featured.
