These are our neighbors and friends and we are more than happy to provide it.  With over 400 employees we understand what has happened to our area.  Our hearts break for our friends and neighbors in need at this time. We have employees who have lost their homes and everybody in our company wants to help.  This will be a meal only; we are not providing a lunch show today.

“We have two talented families who will bring you all the sweetness and craziness of this beautiful season,” Fee said.  “Whether you are city-folk or country cuzins, you will love the holiday mayhem, lots of singing and dancing, jaw dropping stunts and sidesplitting comedy.  We hope you will come spend some time with us this holiday season. We have lots of holiday havoc and plenty of action and excitement.”

Jack HatfieldPigeon Forge, Tenn., April 21, 2016 — Have you ever wanted to eat with the Hatfield’s of the famous Hatfield-McCoy feud? Now is your chance. Jack Hatfield will be visiting Pigeon Forge, Tenn., on Tuesday, April 26 and Wednesday, April 27 from 4:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud Theater to sign his Hatfield Clan Cookbook, “Eat’n with the Hatfield’s.” Books will be on sale at The Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud and the public is invited.

Jack Hatfield has put together treasured family recipes used from the Hatfield clan. Inside this cookbook is a collection of recipes passed down through generations of direct descendants of The Hatfield Family (of the famous Hatfield & McCoy family feud) and friends. These recipes are a mixture of old and new recipes, some with a modern twist.  There is also a collection of photos, facts, and stories about the family history throughout the cookbook.

Author, Jack Hatfield, Jr., received his inspiration for the cookbook while helping clean out his “Mawmaw’s” house a few years ago. During his spring-cleaning he found a drawer full of recipes, which she had collected, from family and friends over the years.  In an effort to preserve the family history, he decided to share his family’s recipes and preserve the family history by publishing a cookbook. Hatfield said, “Our recipes are mouth waterin’, finger lickin’, knee slappin,’ home cookin,’ GOOD!”
