On Saturday, September 24, Historic Huguenot Street will host the third gathering of the Old Fort History Club, featuring food and cider pairings with CIA graduate Chef Shawn Hubbell and Angry Orchard. The event series is held at the historic DuBois Fort – formerly the Old Fort Restaurant – where people can enjoy camaraderie, food, drink, and entertainment.
The event will also feature a talk on archival cook books by award-winning food historian and HHS Board Member Peter G. Rose. She has been researching the influence of the Dutch on the American kitchen since the early 1980s and has published a number of books on the subject, including The Sensible Cook: Dutch Foodways in the Old and the New World, Food, Drink and Celebrations of the Hudson Valley Dutch, Childhood Pleasures: Dutch Children in the Seventeenth Century, and others. A number of her books will be available for purchase and Mrs. Rose will be signing them at the event.
Existing members may attend for $15 using the promo code received via email.
Those who join the Old Fort History Club as new members for $25 will receive complimentary admission to this event, which will take place from 6 – 8 pm at the DuBois Fort (81 Huguenot Street). Those interested may register as new members here. Club membership grants access to upcoming club events for one year. Future events will include special food and beverage tastings, music, talks, and other forms of entertainment.
