Sir Andrew Macphail was known to have parties with a variety of guests, including L.M Montgomery, Earl Gray, Stephen Leacock, John McCrea, and many more. To keep this tradition alive, Chef Joel Short created a menu for our cook Linda Hunter. The Veranda Cafe’ allows guests to have a taste of the Macphail’s Scottish background and produce grown in our own gardens.
