In the hills of Greensboro, near the frozen shores of Caspian Lake, friends and sweethearts trek to the Highland Lodge for an inspired winter feast. In the kitchen, cooks assemble bowls of ginger-beet soup; salads of shaved fennel, pear and Bayley Hazen Blue; pan-seared scallops and couscous; and peppered New York strip with sherried mushrooms. At meal's end, they serve wine-soaked strawberries, both dessert and nightcap. Wine pairings — and special room rates — are available for those who don't want to spoil the mood by driving home.
Valentine's Day Dinner: Thursday, February, 14, 7-9 p.m., $69-89. Highland Lodge, Greensboro. Info, 322-4456, highlandlodge.com.
