Join us for a New England summertime favorite: Chowder!
New England’s culinary history is marked by a varying array of chowders. Early forms were thick and layered, but the adaptability of this beloved recipe has allowed for a multitude of tasty preparations to emerge. Thick or thin, brimming with fish or clams or corn, chowder springs up throughout the region in as many distinctive varieties as there are ports of call. It remains the quintessential expression of New England cuisine. Food writer and chowder connoisseur Robert S. Cox dishes out the history, flavors and significance of every New Englander’s favorite comfort food.
Smithsonian Café and Chowder House of Hatfield, MA will be serving up a tasty chowder tribute for you to enjoy while learning the history of this flavorful dish.
Enjoy an old-time picnic atmosphere while learning and tasting history. Register today for this event today! Reservations are required. Admission includes a cup of chowder, a roll, and a cookie.
In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Music Room.
