A special food and wine event to benefits the programs of the Waterloo Area Historical Society and Slow Food Huron Valley chapter is scheduled 4:00 – 8:00 PM Sunday, August 21, at Waterloo Farm Museum, 13493 Waterloo Munith Rd., Grass Lake, MI.

This will be a day in the country at an old-fashioned farm picnic filled with the food, history, and activities of an earlier era. Our Chefs have been researching Michigan foodways of the late 1800s to create a handmade eight-course tasting menu that reflects the era when the Realy family settled in Waterloo. You'll see food being cooked on the hearth and over a wood-fired stove, and you can try corn shelling and ice cream cranking on real old-time implements.

There will be a cash bar with wine available from Lone Oak Vineyard Estate, along with some local beer and hard cider.

Sip lemonade while playing lawn games under the big maple trees, and then cool down with a visit to the old ice house. In addition, there will be music, tours, animals, and a pie auction to enjoy.

As a special treat, legendary culinary historian, Jan Longone, has agreed to conduct an "Antiques Roadshow" for your mysterious kitchen implements and cookbooks.

More information may be found here.  You may order your tickets online. The cost is $30 for SFHV and Waterloo members. Non-member cost is $35. Tickets for children 5 to 12 are $10.
