Event Details

Join Historic Rittenhouse Town to prepare and taste an authentic 18th century southeast Pennsylvanian seasonal meal.

In November of 1780, what would an early European immigrant to Philadelphia grow, harvest and eat?

What flavors reflected their culture and influenced American food today? How did they construct a hearth to cook and bake with wood fire? How did they experience day-to-day life in a village in the Wissahickon valley?

Find out when you join us at the Historic Rittenhouse Town Bakehouse to prepare and taste an authentic 18th century southeast Pennsylvanian seasonal meal.

Historian Clarissa Dillon will share her expansive knowledge of 18th Century local seasonal foods while you prepare, cook and share a meal at the wood-fired hearth of our 1725 bakehouse.
