Hearth Cooking: Beyond the Basics class at Landis Valley
This class will take you past the basics of 18th and 19th century cooking in the Landis Valley Tavern hearth and bake oven. This is a hands-on class in which basic knowledge of hearth cooking will be helpful. You will use period recipes and equipment to prepare spit roasted meat, planed fish, boiled pudding, cheese, bread, wafers, syllabub and more. Each day will end with a meal of class made dishes.
Instructor and food historian Linda Zeigler has 30 years experience with hearth cooking, and bake ovens. She has demonstrated and interpreted historic foodways at many central PA museums. Linda has a passion for all aspects of 18th and 19th century domestic life and enjoys passing her knowledge on to others through demonstrations and classes.
