Fireside Feasts: Flatlands Edition, Part 1

June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Lott House and Wyckoff House Museum for two shared evenings of hearth cooking, spirit tasting, eating, drinking and merriment! The menus will reflect the produce and bounty from our gardens by utilizing crops and herbs grown on both Farms. Influences from historic and contemporary immigrant communities in Flatlands will be highlighted, including recipies from the Lott family cookbook.

Sample dishes cooked on an open hearth by Hearth Cook Zach, sample historical cocktails with the Food Griot, Tonya Hopkins, and learn about Brooklyn history with Alyssa Loorya of Chrysalis Archaeology.

On Thursday June 6, experience the Lott House, including a rarely seen peak into the interior of the house. On Thursday June 20, visit the Wyckoff House and get to tour New York City’s oldest house.
