Cooking over an open fire? Of course!

In April, you have the chance to learn how to make a terrific meal over an open fire! While today's meal will focus on 18th century foods, what you learn can be applied to any era. Beginning with the making of the fire, you will be expertly guided to prepare the mid-day meal, recalling the days when the fireplace served as both heat for the home and the center of the kitchen. Cooking at the hearth is not limited to stew and soup! You will make breads, meat dishes and, of course, desserts! The day is completed by sharing the meal you have prepared.


In May, you will have a chance to find out how to make an entire meal in a Bee Hive Bake Oven. You will learn to fire the oven, prepare a full meal, and of course, share the meal at the end of the day!


DLM has terrific and enthusiastic cooks and teachers. You will not be disappointed with your day!


Classes are open to teens, 14 and older, and adults interested in a hands-on class.


Fee for either day-long class, including all materials is $45.00 (10% discount for DLM members); class size is limited to 6 participants. ***Pre-paid registration is required.***
