In truth, Chef Greg LOVES seafood so he would probably offer lobster without a historical reference…
And yet according to historians, the menu at the “First Thanksgiving” included lobster, seal, and swans. Many compliments to Squanto and Wampanoag Chief Massasoit for teaching these Pilgrims how to farm, how to hunt, and how to avoid eating poisonous plants!
So in the fall of 1621, Governor William Bradford organized a feasting festival, what we now call Thanksgiving (term coined by President Lincoln), and invited the colony’s Native American allies. According to Edward Winslow, the Pilgrim blogger, Governor Bradford sent his guys out on a “fowling” mission for the event –turkey’s now on the menu–
And what did the Wampanoag guests bring to the potluck? Five deer.
