The season will go by fast and I’m working on Next Year’s Hearth Cooking Workshops and I’m looking for your suggestions.
My thoughts so far are to have a few workshops where we will just have pottage and bread for lunch. Then we can concentrate on making
“JUST DESSERT” to take home. (Just before Valentine’s Day anyone?)
“CHEWITS AND HAND PIES” for your family dinner
Any other suggestions?
I’ve been playing around with a few mid-day dinners and I’ve been asked to do a second workshop of “BREAD AND SAUSAGE “We will have new receipts for that day . . . something you would like to try again or a new meal.
Perhaps a “GAME DINNER” would be nice?
Maybe you would like to step out of the 18th century and do early 19th? Please let me know.
For those of you who have cooked on the hearth with me, I’d love to receive some feedback on what you might like to do, length of time to do it in, and ways I can make it a more excellent experience for you and yours. Don’t be shy I can take constructive criticism.
I’d really appreciate feedback from the past classes and suggestions for new one workshops from anyone. I’m pleased to share the hearth with you. Hope to hear from you soon, as I will try and post the workshops before the end of the year.
Gift certificates are available, and I’m happy do to a “Friends Dinner,” if you like, just contact me.
May your winter months find you with friends, family and a bounty of love and health!
How about a class called “Our Colonial Roots” which would dwell on the importance of root vegetables in the cold winter months. In fact, when my shoulder is healed in January I may have to do one of these at Burritt.
How I envy your beautiful kitchen space! Maybe in my next life.
Love your kitchen. It looks very similar to mine. I have family and friends over to do hearth cooking starting from the first cold day till it gets too warm.
Question on the platter I see in the far bottom right of the photo in this post. Is it called Quill ware perhaps? I am very anxious to purchase one to use in serving my meals. Can you let me know who made it?
I love your posts and look forward to them giving me ideas and a learning experience….
I would appreciate your response.
The large redware platter came from Williamsburg years ago. I’m sure they still make them. You can also contact Henderson Pottery in Me he made many of my other dishes and bowls.
