Experience life in an 1812 kitchen! Learn how to cook on an open hearth with period kitchen tools. Ms. Annette Bristol, volunteer at Fort Meigs with over twenty years of experience in open hearth cooking, will teach this hands-on cooking class to the first 12 registered participants. Get hands-on experience by creating a dish from scratch and enjoy the fruits of your labor as you sit down to eat the meal at the end of class! All class members receive a cookbook containing the recipes they used in class.
