Marja Samsom (the Dumpling Diva and chef of famed, now historic, downtown restaurant The Kitchen Club) will serve up 'batter cakes and lemon cream', based on the mid-19th century recipe. Reportedly a favorite of Thomas Jefferson, batter cakes were often served at tea time. The original recipe, with Marja's adaptation for modern cooks, is featured in the museum's newest publication "The Little Book of Tea."
Free admission, includes a self-guided tour of the Merchants' House Museum.
