Every try sweet potato pudding? If not, here’s your chance!
The Duluth East High school’s Food for Thought restaurant will be preparing a dinner to accompany the theater department’s performance of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” The dinner theatre will take place at 6 p.m. on Nov. 8 before the 7 p.m. performance of Drood. Because the play takes place in a theatre house in the 1890s, all the cuisine will be authentic to the time period.
“I researched 18th-century food,” said chef and teacher Glenn D’Amour. “I’ve used this dinner to teach my classes how to formulate special dinners.”
The menu includes Williamsburg Lodge corn chowder, sweet potato pudding and Cornish game hen cooked in the style of traditional Welsh rabbit. D’Amour said he chose the hens to be cooked in the style of rabbit because he doesn’t think a lot of people in the area would stomach the idea of eating rabbit.
The dinner, as with all the food from the Food for Thought restaurant, will be prepared entirely by students from D’Amour’s restaurant management classes.
The cost for dinner and the show is $25. Seating is limited to 60 diners and reservations are essential. Dinner reservations will be taken at 218-336-8845, ext. 2174.
