"Enjoy the ORIGINAL HISTORIC FIRESIDE FEAST at the SALEM CROSS INN. Relax by the fieldstone fireplace as the crackling fire roasts your prime rib "to a turn" by rotating it slowly over a crackling fire of wild cherry logs. This jack is the only known 1700's antique roasting jack that was used to roast fowl and beef in New England that is still in use. The flavor of the fireplace roasted prime rib is unsurpassed. This event has been featured on the Food Network, Chronicle and the Phantom Gourmet. Beware the brimming bowl of freshly whipped cream - the perfect complement to New England's best apple pie."
