Willcox_Food_Oct13-2582Here at The Willcox, we make it our purpose to use local and sustainable foods throughout our menu. Not only do we love supporting local, but we believe that in order to be the best restaurant we can be, we must serve our guests the finest, healthiest foods around. We sat down with our executive chef, Regan Browell on the inside scoop for how she creates our season menus.

What are some of your favorite Spring/Summer produce items?
I love all stone fruit, because you can use them in both sweet and savory dishes. Fresh globe artichokes are also a favorite Spring item and there is nothing that makes me happier than fresh peas in the pod for Summer.

Do you hand select produce? Where? A local market?
Yes and also, we plant a garden on the property every year so I pick from that.

What are some of your favorite Spring and Summer recipes?
I love making jams/preserves with the fresh berries/fruits that are abundant during Spring and Summer. I also love working with lamb in the spring, a roasted leg of lamb with peas, fava beans and goat is a favorite.

Anything we should look out for on the menu this season?
Lots of bright colors and flavors that celebrate the season, tasty, elegant and a few surprises to delight

What does it take to create a seasonal menu/seasonal items?
A bit of research and development has to be done. When do the products come into peak, and will that last the time frame you set your menu for? Do your suppliers have the product that you wish to use? Will they stock it for that duration? Are they sourcing local foods? Is the price point in line with what the customer will pay? Does the customer like this product? How can I utilize this product to get the best out of it? How does it complement the other items?……the list goes on.

We’d love for you come for lunch or dinner for the Willcox Restaurant dining experience. Head on over to our menu page, and call us at 803.648.1898 to make your reservation today!

You may have heard about Oxygen Inhalation through a friend or in passing, but do you really know What Oxygen Inhalation Therapy is and what it can do for your body? As experts on the topic, we’re going to let you know what it is, how it’s done and the benefits to this incredible service we offer right here at The Willcox!

What it is: Oxygen therapy is a spa service we offer that provides you with extra oxygen, a gas that your body needs to function and work well. You have over 75 trillion cells in your body and every one of them needs a constant supply of oxygen to thrive and stay alive.

How it works: Oxygen is delivered to your lungs through tubes that comfortably go around your ears with small openings rest right inside your nasal cavity. We use a selection of aromatic effusions that have been extracted through organically grown plants and flowers such as lemon, tea tree, lavender and peppermint. Inhalation brings awareness to your breath so you can learn how to achieve a fully relaxed state.

Benefits of Oxygen Inhalation:
• Helps every day function and increases activeness
• Decreases shortness of breath and fatigue
• Improves sleep
• Boosts mood
• Relaxes and calms

When it’s been a stressful week and you need to relax and calm your mind or if you’ve been down in the dumps and need a quick uplifting session, book a quick Oxygen Inhalation session! Results can be felt as soon as 15 minutes and guests can enjoy the treatment up to an hour if needed! So now that you know what it is, how it works and the incredible benefits your body will receive, all you need to do is book your session!
