Slow but sure, my new hearth is taking place, one more week and I can build a fire.
One of the members of our Culinary Historians just reminded me that we had the pleasure of cooking at his home it two medieval fireplaces. One of which is pictured below.
What is the first thing you are planning to make (when the fire is ready)?
Looking forward to any and all adventures in food you wish to share with such a wondrous hearth.
Hearth Cook Classes will start in Spring. Stay tune.
See you at OSV
That is absolutely beautiful. Oh, how I envy your having a place to cook at home!!!! …. and an oven! Wow!
Looks great! Do you have a similar photo showing the full span of your old hearth so I can see all that has changed? Did you base your changes on anyplace in particular (in other words, what is the best hearth you’ve cooked on?)
Just look at all the pictures on the blog, where I’m cooking it is the smallest hearth you could have. It is in our den and will stay there. The new hearth will be connected to the kitchen when done.
Best hearth Old York (even though it smokes) what it does have is air-condition. You can’t beat that. Best equipped hearth is at the educational building at OSV. One of the best experiences was cooking as a member of the Culinary Historians of CT in the Harrison House in Branford, CT.
Oldest fireplace mideval in Ct as pictured above.
