18th Century Walk-in Fireplace Cooking Luncheon
April 9, 2016
Authentic meal cooked in an authentic 18th century walk-in fireplace and in which guests got to eat in an authentic 1758 cellar kitchen. Hearth Chef Margaret Quinn cooked the feast right before our eyes and provided a lesson on early American cooking. Headquarters Farm owner Roger Byrom provided a discussion about the history and restoration of his beautiful home. As we lunched, colonial entertainment was provided by Anne and Ridley Enslow.
Chef Quinn's menu included "stewed beef and root vegetables", with home made bread and olie-koeckens (small fried donuts) as a sweet ending.
Held at Headquarters Farm, 51 Sandbrook Headquarters Road, Stockton, (Delaware Township), NJ 08559.
