LEWISBURG, (Pa.) – Preparations for Packwood House Museum’s Annual Fundraising Dinner are underway. This year’s dinner, held on March 28th at 7 p.m., will feature cuisine from New Orleans. Created and served by the students of The School of Business and Hospitality at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, the evening will start in the Reception Room with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, including shrimp etouffee in puff pastry and duck-ham wrapped scallops with pork belly. After moving to the Dining Room, an appetizer of “Oyster” po-boy will begin the meal, followed by filé gumbo for the soup course. Next, a jambalaya rice salad will be served, followed by a seafood course of shrimp and grits. The piéce de résistance, chicken roulade with champagne cream sauce, will cap the meal. While a dessert of butter pecan ice cream-filled crepe with bananas foster is being prepared, guests will be treated to a tour of the first floor of the museum by Jennifer Snyder, administrator of Packwood House Museum. The memorable evening will conclude as the diners retire to the Reception Room to enjoy an aperitif and reminisce about this unforgettable evening.
