Woodstock Inn Bed & Breakfast - Independence, MO, 64050, United States

Woodstock Inn Bed & Breakfast presents...

The Dessert Club

Dessert Club is one of Woodstock Inn's flagship events, it takes place the 3rd Saturday of every month and the concept is to try a selection of desserts and vote for a favorite, (oh, while having FUN!). Each month has a theme taken from a European country...just like our guest rooms. Dessert club is an excellent way to have the opportunity to try different dishes you wouldn’t normally choose.

It’s conception came from the owner, Kim Morgan's travels while in Europe. She visited the original Pudding Club in England and was so taken that she wanted to create something similar for Woodstock Inn.

What to expect...

  • Arrive at 6:30pm and enjoy a glass of something sparkling while listening to our host welcome and inform you of the history of Woodstock Inn, the McKim mansion, the etiquette for the evening, and menu. On some occasions we also have live music!
  • At 7:00pm you will be seated and served a light main course of possibly pasta or meat, and a seasonal vegetable.
  • Of course the evening is ALL ABOUT THE DESSERTS! The Parade of Desserts begins with a server bringing out one dessert at a time accompanied by a description. Applause is welcome and encouraged.
  • The final dessert is our signature dessert so everyone stands, claps, and cheers. Spoon drumming is also encouraged! It's FUN, it's LOUD, it's YUMMY.
  • Guests sample one dessert at a time and place their numbered rankings on a score card for each dessert.
  • While enjoying a delicious cup of coffee or tea, we will tally up the scores and see which dessert is the WINNER for the month!

Your tummy is so FULL you might need to spend the night!
