Before New York Was New York
The Farm on Adderley is thrilled to welcome ‘historic gastronomist’ Sarah Lohman to host a meal inspired by what people were eating in New York in the 1600s and the lasting influence of Dutch tastes. The meal will be inspired by a cookbook compiled by the Lefferts family, who had a stronghold on land in the Flatbush (“Vlacke Bos”) area of Brooklyn.
Sarah Lohman is an educator at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and also works as a freelance curator, consulting with institutions such as The Brooklyn Historical Society and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens to create public programs focused on food. Visit her blog at fourpoundsflour.com.
