Bed and Breakfast Owners create their own




By Vivien Perez

athy and Scotty Ebberach are the innkeepers of the 1897 Daffodale House Bed and Breakfast in Monticello, Florida.

The house has been renovated to its former glory thirteen years ago, the Victorian tea room opened five years after that. Of course, the tea room has been a great success and therefore a cookbook was created and published called, Daffodale Delights Series Book 1,

"Have Tea with Me at The Bed and Breakfast." written by Cathy Ebberach. The cookbook is filled with Southern Louisiana recipes passed down from grandma to mom and then daughter, full of delicious memories. Cathy is a true southern belle from the south who loves to cook. The cookbook features Shrimp and Grits, Jambalaya, and Southern Peach Tea. My peach tea is bold with real peach flavor." said Cathy Ebberbach. She hopes to publish another cookbook in the series because she has teas, pastries, and other food recipes to include in the next one. Guests are always asking for recipes so now they can buy "Daffodale Delights, "Have Tea with Me at The Bed and Breakfast." Series II should be out by the end of 2019.

“Our tearoom specializes in Victorian era recipes dating back to the 1800’s to present. The restaurant also offers traditional fare from specialty soups to a Ribeye steak. To avoid some wait reservations are recommended for tea, lunch or dinner. Tea times are 11, 1 & 3:00pm.”

Most of the food recipes she collected are hers made from scratch. She makes tiny French pastries all from scratch. Just plan simple recipes with real southern charm. These recipes are very easy to follow, and this cookbook makes a great gift for the season baker to the beginner.
