Cooking with a Gettysburg Chef – Johnathon McGrain of the Historic Fairfield Inn

By Donna White – Catching a whiff of the fresh roasted garlic and herbs as I walked into the kitchen at The Historic Fairfield Inn, I just knew this was going to be a yummy day. Chef Johnathon was ready and waiting for us to get started with the ham and bean soup recipe that has been used at the Inn for more than 200 years.

When you start with quality, fresh ingredients and add in a wonderful chef that really cares about the product he is serving to the Inn’s guests, you know that you just can’t go wrong. The finished product was a thick, rich, salty ham and bean soup, that we paired with a beautiful Adams County Winery sweet red – it was simply wonderful.

Visit the Historic Fairfield Inn in Fairfield, Pa., for the signature and historic ham and bean soup, as well as the many other delicious dishes offered on their menu.
