As Kojo prepares to graduate from Monroe Community College hospitality program, he applauded the Rochester seeds swap and the personalized Ellwanger elopements. During his short time at the Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast, he has learned everything from culinary skills, preparation, serving, bed making 101, silver polishing, planting a garden, button sewing, furniture restoration, and attending Visit Rochester meetings. His highlight was meeting Mayor Evans. And what a highlight indeed-as he praised Kojo’s perseverance, quoting, “ now you can take over” the running of the bed and breakfast. While the internship is geared towards preparing interns for hospitality management, the true test is in finding a balance and excelling in customer service. So what 17 hours of the day would you like to work? He is sure up for the task!

My mother has always been a huge fan of raspberries, but I’ve always found them to be too tart. I had never tasted wineberries before my time at the Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast, but I’ve fallen in love with them. They have the same fresh and sweet flavor of raspberries without the sharp tartness. I would recommend Rosemary’s garden fresh wineberries to anyone. During my time as a hospitality intern at the Ellwanger Estate, we have picked wineberries over the last couple of weeks to create wonderful fruit masterpieces, such as fruit poodles, kiwi roses surrounded by exquisite fruit mosaics and delicious and ornate fruit parfaits. Our guests have been highly impressed by our fresh organic produce, and our dedication to providing a genuine farm to table dining experience. Rosemary introduced me to wineberries, and it has been a wonderful addition to my fruit repertoire. Come and let us delight you with some wineberries at the finale of their season!
With gratitude and high hopes of meeting you!
