Using authentic recipes and kitchenware from the 1800s, cook in the open hearth of a restored ironworker's log home in historic Catoctin Furnace. Travel back in time 200 years and learn how to cook using early recipes in an open hearth with authentic ingredients.
Workshop spaces are very limited. Participants are encouraged to wear period clothing. This is a unique educational and culinary opportunity, and will be led by veteran teacher and CFHS volunteer Priscilla Rall, assisted by other CFHS volunteers. A booklet about open hearth cooking, along with the recipes, will be provided for all participants.
Admission is $25, limited to 20
