Spend the day around an Open Hearth Fireplace as guests prepare and enjoy a 6-course 18th Century Harvest Dinner together.
The day will begin with a tour of the Nathan Hale Homestead. Guests will then get busy churning butter, tending the fire, preparing the dishes, and learning to cook over the open hearth just as they would have in the home more than two centuries ago.
During this hands-on course, guests will also learn the history of the Hale Family, farm life in Connecticut, food preservation, and imported foods during the 1700's. All the foods and cooking methods reflect what would have been used during the autumn months in 18th century Connecticut.
Once dinner is prepared, guests will sit down together to savor the delicious harvest feast and raise our glasses to slow food in Connecticut!
