Learn about food and beverages of the 1800s
On Sunday, May 17, step back in time for a taste of life in the Dyckman household at Boscobel. How did the Dyckman family dine at Boscobel and what did they eat? What sorts of herbs, crops and livestock were raised on the estate? Explore these questions and more during a presentation and tasting under the pavilion in the west meadow, overlooking the Hudson River.
Learn about and experience a taste of life from over 200 years ago with Emily Lombardo, one of Boscobel’s knowledgeable docents. Lombardo will discuss local history, design, culinary traditions and the precursor of today’s farm-to-table movement. A sample of each meal and accompanying beverages will be served buffet style.
Dining with the Dyckmans takes place on Sunday, May 17 at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $60/person and include the presentation, sample portions of three meals, hard cider, red wine (21+ years, please) and non-alcoholic beverages. Include a guided tour of the mansion in a Tour & Dining Ticket for $75/person. Space is limited; advance registration at boscobel.org is necessary.
