This event has been cancelled.

Sandra L. Oliver, noted food historian and celebrated author, will lead an intensive three-day workshop in historic recipe research. Each participant selects a recipe and an alternative they would like to research. Class time is divided between lecture and discussion time, and Oliver will teach a method of conducting the research. Each participant will use a combination of resources both real—books in the room—and virtual—online resources via computer—to conduct research. Participants are encouraged to bring a computer with wireless capacity. The workshop concludes with a cooking afternoon to test your recipe on the final day in the 1786 kitchen at the Visitor Center at Hall Tavern.

The all-inclusive registration fee includes course materials, meals andsandytarboxcooking.jpg four nights (Sunday-Thursday) lodging at the Deerfield Inn. Fee for double occupancy: $765; fee for single occupancy: $1,115; fee for commuter: $415 (no lodging and breakfast); fee for traveling companion (not attending workshop) with a double occupancy participant: $440.
