What's educational, exciting, edible and
historical? Evening in the Colonial Kitchen at The Cock 'n Bull
Restaurant! The 30th season
of Evening in the Colonial Kitchen (also known as "Colonial Dinner") is the
popular food event that runs from 5 - 9 p.m. every Monday evening from
January through March. Click the link below for the 2014 schedule of Colonial Interpreters.
Featured on The Food Network's
"Best Of," the event is particularly suited for families and school
groups and includes a savory four-course, 18th-century style dinner in
which guests may select a generous sampling of two out of eight entrees
and four desserts. Patrons may take home the keepsake menu along with a
pamphlet of Colonial recipes.
Upon arrival or after dining,
guests have the opportunity to observe and ask questions of food
historians as they prepare savory dishes over a roaring fire. They share
the secrets of baking pies in a Dutch oven, roasting beef on a
"clock-work jack" or in a "tin kitchen," cooking fish laced onto a
plank, sautéing Maryland crab in a "spider," as well as baking hearty
breads and Johnny cakes.
Every night of Evening in the
Colonial Kitchen, period musical entertainment will be provided by
Marianne and Tom Tucker. This spirited musical duo's 18th-century
repertoire is a welcome addition to the activities.

Private group dinners for families, schools, organizations or businesses may also be arranged however pricing may differs from above. Groups must be 20 or more.
