Fall and the harvest are a deep part of the cultural heritage of New England — it is the time of year when the leaves turn while the flowers are still in bloom, the skies are a rich blue and there is a hint of frost in the air. Thanksgiving originated as a harvest festival in New England and has been celebrated since 1789 all across America.
It is a time when families and friends come together to give thanks for all that they have and to celebrate life. Cooking and entertaining is part of any celebration and the Silo at Hunt Hill Farm located on 44 Upland Road in New Milford is making cooking and planning for Thanksgiving easy by offering a “Classic Thanksgiving” cooking class on November 5 from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. with Chef Daniel Rosati. The cost is $110 for full participation and can be reserved online.
Participants will learn how to cook a mouth watering menu that is sure to make your guests beg for more with recipes so good that they will become part of your Thanksgiving holiday tradition! The menu includes: Parmesan Herb Quick Bread, Autumn Corn Chowder, Butterflied Herb Grilled Turkey with Pomegranate Molasses Glaze, Brioche Sausage Sage Stuffing, Sweet Potato Gratin with Caramelized Shallots and Aged Gouda, Green Beans with Hazelnut Brown Butter, and Warm Miniature Pumpkin Cheesecakes to finish off the feast.
As a follow up to this class, don’t miss the gingerbread classes that are being planned for kids and for adults in December! For more area information on what to see and do and where to go www.litchfieldhills.com
