A seasonal dinner
Hemings & Hercules
Hemings & Hercules is an extension of our Fuss & Feathers dinners from Chef de Cuisine Martin Draluck where we explore American food history, using relevant techniques, and seasonal ingredients. Through researching for Fuss & Feathers we came across the stories of the first two celebrity chefs in our country who also happened to be the enslaved property of two of our first presidents, Hercules Caesar and James Hemings. With few lasting recorded menus or recipes from either man, these dinners are inspired by the potential works of them and countless others who worked in southern plantation kitchens.
7pm // Thursdays Throughout August — sold out
Each dinner will take place in the Private Dining Room at Hatchet Hall starting at 7pm. Guests are encouraged to arrive early.
