Open Hearth Cooking Demonstration: It's Pumpkin Time

September 16, 2017 - September 30, 2017 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm



If it’s September, it must be pumpkin time. Before the pumpkin spice lattes and muffins of today, people were eating dishes made from Connecticut Field and Long Island Cheese pumpkins.  It was a dependable crop and stored well over the colder months providing a reliable source of food. Meet the workhorse of the Colonial kitchen – the pumpkin. Our hearth cooks will be making a variety of dishes using heirloom pumpkins and old recipes using this staple of the fall menu.
