Beginning Hearth Cooking
October 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us in the hearth kitchen at Gunston Hall for the ultimate experience in slow food as you learn to employ 18th-century cooking techniques and recipes to create period dishes. Get involved in the joys and challenges of cooking over an open flame, take a tour of the house and meet other food enthusiasts.
The class is a one-day session from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on each weekend day. Registration includes all materials and lunch. Please plan to wear clothing made from natural fibers, as you will be around open flame. These include cotton, linen, and wool. Stay away from garments containing polyester, nylon, acrylic, or lycra.
Register online here. When registering for both days, please use the code: MULTDAY. If you have questions or would like to register over the phone, please call 703-550-9220 and speak to our Education Manager, Lacey Villiva.
