Adult Hearth Cooking Workshop

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. Use your hearth skills to investigate complex recipes while cooking over an open flame, take a tour of the house and meet other food enthusiasts.

This workshop one-day runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  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.

Space is limited to ensure social distancing, and one-on-one instruction time.


The fee for this program is $125.  Members of Gunston Hall pay $100.

Registration closes on Friday, November 12.
