Join us this winter to prepare and eat savory and sweet dishes of the past under the guidance of our experienced Open Hearth Cooks. The menus this year are inspired by the recollections of Epaphras Hoyt (born 1765 in Deerfield) whose 1839 journal recounts daily life of his childhood, including food and cookery.
