Day 1

Enjoy the day as we begin with a visit to the Lewisburg Farmers' Market where Penn Dutch and "English" vendors offer a variety of goods ranging from bakery items, meats & cheeses, vegetables, flowers, and more! Then, we will visit the teaching restaurant at the Pennsylvania School of Technology, Le Jeune Chef, in Williamsport. Here we will learn about the school's culinary program and get a taste of Le Jeune's delicious dishes. Lunch will include a salad, an entrée, and coffee/tea with dessert. A dessert chef will present a demo of our dessert, the restaurant's signature dish, known as 'Chocolate Soup.' This decadent dessert is a chocolate ganache lightened with cream, surrounding a coffee flan, and garnished with fresh berries, white and dark chocolate shavings, and Chantilly cream. After lunch, it's all aboard the Hiawatha Riverboat for a narrated Susquehanna River Cruise detailing the river's role in making Williamsport the lumber capitol of the world in the mid-1800s. This narration depicts how logs from the north were corralled with underwater booms as jamcrackers risked their lives to keep the lumber flowing down river. We will also learn about a conductor on the Underground Railroad that used the river to help slaves from the south flee north. Our final stop will be the Purity Candy Company in Allenwood where a glass wall separates the factory from the store. If the factory is in operation, we will be able to watch candy being made. Plus, you can browse the delicious shoppe with a special treat for everyone upon departure.
