At hilltop kitchen we cook with care

We believe that food, and food experiences, should be pleasurable, memorable, and nourishing.

Set at historic Aldworth Manor, Hilltop focuses on seasonal, homemade menus designed with you in mind. Though the delectable food we create for your wedding or special event may be short-lived, the mouth-watering memory of our flavors shared with family and friends in an opulent, singular setting, will last a lifetime.

We also invite the public to enjoy our fresh, local cuisine in Aldworth’s unique setting during Public Night, which is held each Monday and Thursday.

Our Ingredients

At Hilltop Kitchen we specialize in fresh, seasonal ingredients. We use Aldworth-raised chicken eggs and blueberries picked on site. We make our own pasta, serve maple syrup from the property’s trees, and rely on delicious local ingredients like cheese, apples, and vegetables to craft a menu that is just right for your wedding, retreat, or special event. Peruse our sample menus here.

Our Setting

No setting can compare to the grand beauty of Aldworth Manor with its historic Italianate architecture and magnificent grounds overlooking Mt. Monadnock. Our clients appreciate Aldworth’s lavish gardens and mansion, the attentive, friendly staff, as well as the flexibility provided by varied on-site guest accommodations. Those who wish to bring in outside catering services will enjoy the convenience of our dish rental services and brand new on-site kitchen (contact us for more information).

Our Team

Erin Hammerstedt, Chef Judy Mortner, and the rest of the Hilltop Kitchen crew will not only create memorable food for your event, but they will also make certain that all of the details are executed without a hitch. They enjoy a collaborative approach to catering, and their menus are designed with your personal tastes and budget in mind. Feel free to contact Erin and her staff directly if you are interested in a catering quote or renting the Hilltop Kitchen.

Good Food for Good Friends

Hilltop Kitchen and the bar at Aldworth Manor is open to the public on Monday and Thursday evenings for delicious food, fantastic drinks, and good conversation with friends and neighbors. Residents of Harrisville and the Monadnock region gather on Mondays for comfortable, casual food to kick off the week, and on Thursday nights enjoy dinner options--often accompanied by musical entertainment—to roll into the weekend. So stop by, get a hearty bowl of soup, some tasty risotto, or a cold beer or seasonal cocktail, and meet old friends and new at Aldworth, one of Harrisville's most spectacular historic settings.

Special events, like live music, performances, and holiday parties, are opportunities for us to share our dedication to celebration in exciting new ways. Click here to view the Aldworth Manor Special Events Calendar. See a sample menu here.
