Gather Around the Fire for Some Historic Cooking at Two Brooklyn Farmhouses


    It’s hard to think of a more history-filled atmosphere for imbibing food and drink than at a centuries-old farmhouse. Two of Brooklyn’s historic sites, Lott House and Wyckoff House, will be providing that ambiance next month.

    The farmhouses are joining forces for “Fireside Feasts: Flatlands Edition,” featuring hearth cooking inspired by historic recipes and the cuisine of the contemporary immigrant communities of their neighborhoods. There will be a unique meal prepared at each site along with history-based cocktails to sample. In addition to the nibbles and drinks enjoyed fireside, there will be peeks inside the houses, history chats, lawn games and more.
