New England Summer Dinner
July 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Thursday, July 20 6pm-9pm, $50.00/non-members, $42.50/members
Join A Lovin’ Spoonful’s Emily Steadman to cook a classic New England summer dinner! Learn the origins and development of some of New England’s favorite signature dishes as we prepare a seasonal New England meal together. We will focus on locally sourced seafood and produce in order to highlight the variety of food available in our community! The menu will include a bacon or salt pork chowder, a clam bake layered with seafood, sausage and potatoes in a beer broth (made with beer from Beer’d Brewing in Stonington), sweet corn fritters, a simple heirloom tomato salad, Cape Cod Pudding with a summer berry compote and fresh whipped cream. We will also enjoy New England Sangria with the meal! The menu will be based on heritage culinary books and research Emily has done on the culinary history of the area. The meal will not be gluten free. Space limited to 10 people. Pre-registration is required. Meet at Coogan Farm.
