Judy’s Panna Cotta

Judy’s Panna Cotta

 This is one of our most photographed and requested recipes. When asked what it is, my usual response is, “You just have to try it.” It looks like yogurt, but it is definitely not. It does have buttermilk, but you would never know it. This wonderful treat has the consistency of a light custard, with a sweet, melt-in-your-mouth goodness that rivals cheesecake. Combine this yumminess with an easy, but showy plating and you become the hostess of the year. Here…

The Rules of the River

The Rules of the River

So often we hear confusion from our guests regarding the newer rules of the river. Let me start by saying that nothing has changed for tubing trips above the Gruene bridge on the Guadalupe River. The “ban” is only in effect within the city limits of New Braunfels. There are restrictions in place on the Comal River and on the Guadalupe below the Gruene bridge. The restrictions are not based on what you drink, but on how you bring it…

After you grab a bite to eat for lunch, Gruene Hall is offering 2 free shows;  Danny Brooks (blues) will be performing at…
