Beaulne’s An­nual Feast

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum in Coat­i­cook is or­ga­niz­ing its 34th an­nual « Christ­mas Tea,» which is an im­por­tant fundrais­ing event. The 2012 Edition is very spe­cial be­cause of the centenary cel­e­bra­tion of the Château Nor­ton.

« Christ­mas Tea» has be­come a gen­uine tradition trea­sured by ev­ery­one. Ev­ery year the halls of the Château Arthur-Os­more-Nor­ton fill with en­thralled res­i­dents from Coat­i­cook and else­where, want­ing to live a mag­i­cal am­biance. The guests are plunged into the Christ­mas spirit kin­dled by the beau­ti­ful Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions inside and out­side of the Château, and by a hearty wel­come that is al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated. The evening high­light is a sump­tu­ous buf­fet, which is served on two floors ac­com­pa­nied by mu­sic and end­ing with prize draws. In short an out­stand­ing and un­for­get­table cel­e­bra­tion.

Here’s the per­fect fall-in­spired treat from The Old Farmer’s Almanac Ev­ery­day Bak­ing cook­book for fam­ily and friends who’ll be vis­it­ing your home, host­ess gifts, book club, work, and school par­ties this hol­i­day sea­son. Ev­ery­day Bak­ing fea­tures 118 orig­i­nal recipes by cel­e­brated baker and long­time Almanac col­lab­o­ra­tor Ken Haedrich. A win­ner of the Ju­lia Child Cook­book Award, Haedrich may be best known as the au­thor of Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for De­li­cious Home­made Pie, which was re­cently named one of the best bak­ing books of the past 25 years by Cook­ing Light mag­a­zine. Ev­ery­day Bak­ing, with its handy ref­er­ence sec­tion and time-tested ad­vice sprin­kled throughout, de­mys­ti­fies the art of bak­ing and will in­spire home bak­ers of all skill lev­els to make de­li­cious break­fast treats, af­ter-school snacks, and im­pres­sive desserts. The easy-to-fol­low recipes in Ev­ery­day Bak­ing don’t de­mand un­usual in­gre­di­ents or ab­stract cook­ing tech­niques, but rather just a de­sire to make de­li­cious home-baked goods com­pletely from scratch. Ev­ery­day Bak­ing is avail­able on­line at Almanac.com or wher­ever books and mag­a­zines are sold.

Tick­ets will be sell­ing fast to the an­nual Christ­mas Tea, which is re­ally a sump­tu­ous meal, which will be held at the Beaulne Mu­seum on De­cem­ber 2nd.
