Open Hearth Cooking Demonstration: Tavern Fare @ Historic Deerfield
Oct 6 @ 9:30 am – Oct 28 @ 4:00 pm

Colonial New England taverns were common in both small towns and cities. They were a welcome sight for travelers who could stop for a drink and a hot meal. Local people went to taverns to catch up on town news, see friends, have a drink or a quick meal. Taverns were known for their quick and hearty meals rather than fine dining. Come see the 1786 kitchen at the Hall Tavern and see what’s on the Bill of Fare for the day.
