Taking place at Hatchet Hall on Thursdays in February, Hemings & Hercules is a seasonal dinner that celebrates the country's first two celebrity chefs: "Both slaves, one owned by Thomas Jefferson [James Hemings], the other by George Washington [Hercules Caesar], whose skill and knowledge influenced future generations of American chefs."
The eight-course dinner is created by chef Brian Dunsmoor and chef de cuisine Martin Draluck using early American techniques and seasonal ingredients. Seating is available for 12 guests each night in The Family Room. Pricing is $100 for dinner, or $140 with beverage pairing. Tickets are on sale at the Hemings & Hercules website.
