18th Century Cooking Class: Winter Comfort Foods


Join us online for a live, virtual cooking demonstration in the kitchen of our historic farmhouse on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 11:00 am–1:00 pm.

Learn how early settlers prepared food using an open hearth. Original 18th-century recipes, seasonal ingredients, traditional cooking utensils, and the warm embers of the fire will bring history to life as participants watch and learn how to make two comforting dishes from another era: Squash Pudding and Carrot Puffs. Participants will receive supply list and recipes upon registration to participate from their home kitchens.

Instructor Chris Lord-Barry is an educator with over 20 years of experience, who specializes in 18th-century cooking. Over the past 10 years, she has studied historic cookery and early American foodways and loves to share her passion for early American recipes with others.
