The Friends are pleased to announce Tastes of Cooch’s Bridge, Sunday, October 23, 6-9 pm at Buena Vista in New Castle. Dinner co-chairs Ashley Cloud and David Young invite you to an extraordinary evening of dining, fun, and fellowship—all for an urgent purpose.
Experience the culinary magic of Chef Lion Gardner…
Delaware’s own Chef Lion Gardner will prepare a six-course dinner featuring his unique interpretation of the foods consumed by the generations who’ve peopled Cooch’s Bridge. You’ll experience Chef Gardner’s fresh take on the cuisine of the Lanape, the African Americans, the European Colonials, the American Revolutionaries, and the families who followed.
While you fund urgently needed research.
Your ticket to Tastes of Cooch’s Bridge in part will fund an urgently needed internship program. As site supervisor Kaitlyn Dykes explains, interns are needed now to assure that good documentary and archeological evidence is amassed before Cooch’s Bridge Historic Site is opened to the public.
“We’re in a foundational phase,” she says. “Interns are needed to help build the foundation for our interpretation of the site—the superstructure that sits on top of the evidentiary foundation. Interns are essential to the strong foundation of research on which our interpretation will rely. We can’t do without them.”
