Hartford, CT - Connecticut Landmarks will celebrate the rich agricultural heritage of the Nathan Hale Homestead, and the freshness of Connecticut grown food, with Dinner at the Homestead, prepared by Executive Chef Scott Miller, of Max’s Oyster Bar and Max Catering, on Saturday, September 7th beginning at 5 pm. The evening will commence with Open Homestead, highlighting Colonial demonstrations, music, living history and museum tours. A special cocktail hour begins at 6 pm featuring distinctive wines, and beer from The Olde Burnside Brewing Company. Dinner is served at 7 pm. Rain date is Sunday, September 8th, beginning at 4 pm.
Dinner at the Homestead is Connecticut Landmarks’ signature event celebrating the bounty of the season in this splendid historic setting.
Dinner at the Homestead features an exceptional, multi-course farm-to-table menu, by Chef Scott Miller. “Freshness is ephemeral, and geography expresses itself in the taste of the food, sometimes subtly and sometimes profoundly,” says Chef Miller.
“Fresh, local, organic food graced the Hale family table and is a very sustainable way to eat. Hosting a farm dinner at the Homestead not only celebrates the rich agricultural and patriotic heritage of the site and of Nathan Hale’s family, but also reminds people of the importance of supporting local farms, historic sites and our community,” says Sheryl Hack, Executive Director of Connecticut Landmarks.
The Nathan Hale Homestead is located at 2299 South Street in Coventry, CT. Registration is required, please call (860) 247-8996 x 23 to register. Individual Tickets are $150 each, Patron Tickets are $250 each, for more information on tickets visit www.ctlandmarks.org.
The evening will also feature a live and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit educational programming at Connecticut Landmarks’ properties.
