Last night, Carol, Jonathan, Amanda & Phillip, and I journeyed to the Salem Cross Inn at West Brookfield, MA. There we enjoyed the Fireplace Feast, a 1700’s style feast of prime rib, potatoes, butternut squash, spinach pie, rolls, seafood chowder, and apple pie with whipped cream. We started the evening with a wagon ride around the property, followed by mulled cider or mulled wine as we watched the chef make the apple pie and the prime rib roasting in the fireplace. Both Jon & I took a turn at the cauldron stirring the chowder. The demonstrations were interesting, the ambiance enticing, and the food was tasty. We all agreed the chowder, rolls, and apple pie were the best part, along with ambiance and atmosphere. It was a great, fun, and filling evening.
