Tradition Never Looked so Good!
There’s just ONE date left in 2014 to enjoy this special afternoon and evening of Shaker-inspired hospitality
Reserve now for November 29, 2014.
This “don’t-miss” tour and dining experience begins at 4 pm with a guided tour of the historic Village. (Arrive early to shop at the Village Store, where oval boxes, toys and Shaker food items are all on sale.) A cider and cheese reception in the authentic Kitchen of the Brick Dwelling follows the tour. Move upstairs for a Music Program and Shaker grace sung by interpreters, which is followed by an elegant buffet dinner served by candlelight in the Believer’s Dining Room, where the Shakers themselves dined. Our skilled staff will escort you to your car by lantern at approximately 8 pm.
Dinner: The talented chefs of Village Harvest Catering present a veritable feast of dishes, all chosen from The Best of Shaker Cooking by Amy Bess Miller. (Beer and wine are available for purchase at both the reception and throughout dinner.) Here’s a sample menu:
- Lentil Soup
- Garden salad with vinaigrette dressing
- Cranberry Pot Roast
- Chicken Pot Pie
- Green and red cabbage, carrot pudding, scalloped parsnips, green beans with dill and watercress
- Coffee and tea
